Six blissful nights discovering unspoilt Uganda

Welcome to Kyaninga Lodge, Uganda – the base for your African adventure!


“I would never have come to Uganda if it wasn’t for this trip and I can’t believe how much I’d have missed!” 

2019 - Ride the Rift Rider

Join us in Uganda to explore a beautiful, unspoilt part of the world. To meet like-minded adventurers and mingle with the local community too. To relax in luxurious surroundings, kayak in a crater lake, rummage in African markets, meet chimps, drink cocktails as the sun goes down, float alongside hippos, and, of course, ride – a lot.

The pinnacle of your trip is the main ride…100 or 200k through the Albertine Rift Valley, while Africa’s highest mountain range towers above. This trip, full of special details and a lot of adventure, will be something you never ever want to forget.
