Mubuku station sits on a 20-acre plot of land on the banks of the Mubuku River. The river runs from the glacial caps of the Upper Rwenzori’s all the way to Lake George. In between, it snakes its way down through the fertile farm land on the east facing slopes of the Rwenzori Mountain Range, past Mubuku station and into Lake George and the rest of African Great Lakes system.
Mubuku is quite close to the shores of Lake George. The mesmerizingly beautiful Queen Elisabeth National Park is the station’s southern neighbor. Even closer, the entrance to Rwenzori National Park is just one kilometer from the entrance to our washing station. Both parks are UNESCO world heritage sites.
