Mihingo was the 3rd amd last eco lodge we stayed in, but because of time constraints, we spent little time there, and that was too bad, because it easily could have been my favorite.  It followed the same protocol as the elctricty or generators, solar power and wood heat.  They had a beautiful pool that looked down from the edge of the Rift Valley.  The tent homes were spaced out quite a way from each other and the lodge, so everything was very private, VERY spacious, and made out of all local materials.  We loved the funky decor and our bird toilet with the "turtle" flusher, and the carved stone everywhere.  It was like a big Hobbit house.  All screened, but no curtains. They brought us coffee and "bisquits" early in the am in a big beautiful African basket, and we sat out on our huge wooden deck and watched the monkeys try and figure out when and where they were going to get into our food!  We had breakfast and an early lunch.  Some of our group took another game drive because the animals were completely different than the other areas.  I decided to take a small hike to a "hide" where one could observe animals coming to a watering hole and not be detected.  Then I went for a refreshing swim in the pool.  We still had to drive to Entebbe that afternoon and get ready for the "farewell" dinner.  I would have loved to stay at Mihingo.
