          We loved Katara Lodge and particularly sleeping under the stars with a rollout canopy bed! The views were fabulous and at night we could see fires in QENP. Service was exceptional and the food was great. We also enjoyed the pool. Great location; great hotel!

          Katara Lodge sits on the escarpment overlooking Queen Elizabeth National Park. The views from the thatch-roofed cottages and the main open-air restaurant/bar area are endless. We watched elephants wandering across the plains while enjoying delicious food!

          My adult children and I shared a cottage. It was beautifully unique, clean, and homey, though nothing like home regarding the views! The cottage has lots of screens, so you feel one with the elephants trumpeting down below in the QENP and the birds chirping....More

          Sorry, no, there is only one star bed that can be rolled out. (Please make sure you are booked into a regular cottage and not the family cottage, which has two rooms but no star bed)
