Zahid Alam’s entrepreneurial zeal and eye for detail is the reason for this gem called Rain Forest Lodge, located within Mabira Forest. The lodge is one of many lodges the tourist destination proprietor operates in some of the most amazing locations in Uganda.
These include the breathtaking and scenic Observatory in Bunyaruguru in Rubirizi district and Equator Snow Lodge at the base of Mt. Rwenzori, all of which I have had the fortune to visit.
Set in the heart of the natural forest of Mabira, the moment you drive in, you automatically feel like you are in a different world altogether. Everywhere you are surrounded by a jungle and thicket of green.
Crafted out of wood, it is feels like cottages smoothly blend into their heavily green surroundings. The warm and cozy accommodation comes with a clay made bathtub, and has both warm and cold water available, depending on what you would prefer.
A very spacious kind size bed occupies the larger part of the cottage, couple with a reading table and a sofa bed, for the afternoon naps.
It’s all about the natural elements when it comes to the décor for the cottages. For instance, the lamp shades are made out of scrap metal.
Coupled with a swimming pool, the lodge has a fully functional spa, complete with a sauna, steam bathes and massage services.
While at the Rain Forest Forest lodge, you can enjoy a lot of outdoor activities including guided nature walks within the forest, bird and butterfly sightings.
The best trips we’ve taken aren’t the ones we booked; they’re the ones we dreamed up and made happen.
