Booked the place over email based on positive reviews here plus their own website's description that mostly focuses on the restaurant. Unfortunately it's closed for renovation and they don't share that fact until arrival. The single room was bare bones--a bed in a room, small window, no fan, cement floor bathroom across the hall seemingly shared with one other room.... More

After having read many of the previous reviews, we can say that we can relate to most of the issues described, even the more critical ones. It all depends on what you expect: The rooms are indeed basic, but they are clean, mosquito nets are present and yes, it's hot, but that's simply how it is in Kampala. Don't expect... More

The other reviews overrate this place a bit. It was very good for the price we paid--there were 9 of us traveling together, and we got two bedrooms with eight individual beds, though we all had to share one bathroom. So the total came out to be less than $10 a person, which isn't bad for Kampala. The location in... More

I wasn't sure what the lodge would be like, but I was pleasantly surprised. It's about the same price as a backpacker's hostel, except that you can have your own private room and it's much quieter and has a local feel. The rooms come with mosquito nets and the beds are comfortable. I've heard the restaurant is really good but... More

I came there first in 2009 to have a dinner. I had a three course meal with a steak and it was all delicous, the best food I had in Uganda and only for something like $6-7! I came again in 2012 and stayed for a couple of nights. That was also very good and the food was just as... More

You cannot find a better hide away to relax at the end of the day, in the middle of Kampala. It's a clean and relaxing oasis in the middle of the vibrant city center of Kampala. It's cheaper than the other back packers in Kampala. It's more central, situated a couple of minutes walk from the old taxi park. It... More

The food was superb! It´s really one of the best deals in town. Nowhere else we have eaten better in Uganda. Staff and the owner are friendly and helpful. Only the rooms are not so good. The toilet was dirty and the room very hot at night, stuffy and small. At the end, we would give arround three and a... More

stayed ten days, the service was excellent and the food was so tasty and cooked to its perfect taste, I would recommend Tuhende Safari Lodge very strongly. If you have already booked at another place I beg you to just go eat at Tuhende Safari Lodges in Old Kampala.

We chose this hotel because it is excellently located at walking distance of the bus terminals. This is a good but basic hotel. And when I say basic I mean REALLY basic: beds are small and the shared bathroom is of the 'no frills' type. The double room we had was too hot in the night, even in October. Therefore... More
