Loved our tented accommodation overlooking the Kazinga channel. Mweya is more a hotel than a lodge, but has a good dining area, good bar, it's a lovely place to relax after a day in QE park (not my most favourite park, I've decided after 3 visits, bit thin on animals). Service was a little indifferent at times, especially at buffet...

I have never written a negative review on TA, but feel compelled to do so now. We visited here with my parents and my one year old son for 2 nights.The location is perfect, overlooking the Kazinga channel and a short walk away from the pier where the boat safari departs. Also the pool area is great. However I found...

We spent one night here in order to do the Kazinga Channel and tried our best to get out of it, but logistically, it wasn't possible. That said, the Channel is worth the stop but this would not have been a place we would have chosen to stay. Fortunately, we got an upgrade to one of the luxury tents and...

The reception rooms, dining deck, dining room and pool are all most elegant and the views breathtaking. The gift shop stocks some pretty fabulous Africana and...

What an incredible view! Perched on the peninsula with pleasant meeting capabilities. The evening Kazinga boat cruise was super...the banks of the channel teaming with wild-life. Pity our itinerary was so packed: must re-visit!

We stayed here for one night for the channel cruise. To be honest, I really wanted to hate this place because it is a hotel. However, the food was very good and the rooms were decent, though dated. The beds were comfortable and the a/c was nice. The views overlooking the channel were nice and we had birds and a...

We loved staying 2 nights at this British/African colonial style club/lodge that was built in the 30s or 40s - and wish we could have stayed longer. The lodge with its dining, pool area and bed room wings are all well sited to look down to the kazinga channel and to the large numbers of hippos, water buffalos, bushbacks, birds...
