It is found between Mgahinga & Bwindi National parks and Kisoro Town in southwestern Uganda. You will find a place full of inspiration and enjoyment which is Chameleon Hill Lodge.

It is situated on the shores of one of East Africa’s most beautiful lakes ‘’Lake Mutanda’’.  You will enjoy spectacular views across the lake with its islands and surrounding hills and in the backdrop, the Virunga Volcanoes greet you.

On your arrival at the lodge you are advised to take your time, sit back and relax in an environment which you have never seen before. The “arty” design of the lodge has mainly been affected by the location of the site itself.
