Maramagambo Forest

View from Jacana Safari Lodge

The Maramagambo Forest stretches up the eastern escarpment and provides cool respite from the equatorial sun and offers an alternative wildlife, including chimpanzees, huge pythons and colonies of cave-dwelling fruit bats. This forest is a valuable sample of East African medium altitude semi-deciduous forest, which is becoming increasingly scarce. Several forest trails have been developed for walking and it is possible to rent canoes to paddle on Lake Nyamusingiri. Jacana Lodge is set on the edge of this lake.
