After a wonderful tour of Uganda in the company of Dave Pepler for 10 days, the most stunning encounters with the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest gorillas as well as the Kibali Forest chimpanzees, this was the ideal last stop over before flying back. The most beautiful location overlooking a major part of the capital, which is very very noisy all night... More

We had a very nice stay at Cassia Logde. Good breakfast with a lot of choice. Very friendly staff, good room and a spectacular view at night over the city, best to enjoy with local beer: Nile Special.

After almost two weeks of travelling through beautiful Uganda, Cassia Lodge was the perfect place to relax before going back home. The staff is very friendly, the view is stunning, the food and beer (I recommend the Nile Special!) are very enjoyable! IfI am lucky enough to return to Uganda, I will definitely stay at Cassia again.

Whenever I go to Kampala, which is often, I stay at Cassia Lodge. Mostly because of the tranquility of the place, the great views and the very nice staff. It is a bit out of the center but the pluses of the place make up for that fact. Definitely a place to recommend. Lieve

We went to cassia lodge as a non resident and used its pool and restaurant. The location I would say is perfect, staff is good in hospitality, food is nice, however would have been better if options for Asian/Indian food were available. Cleanliness of swimming pool is questionable and requires more attention. We wish to stay there in near future.

Having been several times to Kampala in the last six months, I must say that the cosiness of the rooms, the good food and drinks, the hospitality of the owners and personnel, the unbeatable view on the terrace ... are things that compose a cocktail I can't refuse. I met a lot of interesting people there as well. For me... More
