Hippo Spotting

Hippos hang out is very close- about 10 min away from the edge of the lodge. You can go with the guide or alone


For many the most impressive natural feature of Bishangari is the unique ancient forest. The forest stretches for several kilometers and is cris-crossed by pathways that make exploring easy, although it is best to take one of our knowledgeable guides. Many trees are over five hundred years old and in many cases represent the last surviving example of endemic plant species.

Sights of baboons are common and the noisy chatter you will hear overhead will be Colobus monkeys chasing each other through the treetops.

Mountain Biking

Explore the Bishangari area with a mountain bike through an interesting trail, in the forest. Cyclists who ride in Bishangari know it has all the right ingredients for an exhilarating biking experience.

Bird Watching

Bishangari is the ideal place for bird watching as it is located between the ancient forest and Lake Langano. Out of the many aquatic bird species found on the lake are the great white pelicans, cormorants, darters, storks, kingfishers, Egyptian geese, fish eagles and many more. There are birds seen in abundance by the lake, the ancient forest is also home to starlings, hornbills, weavers, bustards and many more. Around Bishangari not less than 300 bird species have been registered

By request we have experienced guides to accompany you to the forest for bird watching.
