I've stayed here twice in connection with visits to Ishasha sector of QENP. It's a nice place to stay - nice restaurant, good customer service, nice bandas/rooms, hot water (well, not super hot, but hot enough), clean rooms...it's not as fancy as some other places in the Ishasha sector, but you're not paying those prices either. It's very quiet.

We stayed here for one night while on safari at QENP. The hotel is clean and well maintained with a nice pool. Our bungalow rooms were in an African banda (roundhouse) style, with en suite bathrooms. We had a little difficulty with the locks in one room but this was quickly sorted out by the friendly and helpful staff. Food... More

We had a wonderful stay at the hotel. The staff were very friendly and attentive. We received a very warm welcome with a tray of complimentary sodas. The rooms were very comfortable with hot showers and excellent mosquito nets. Dinner and breakfast were both of excellent quality and the service was very good. I was taken to town to choose...

Not a place that you want to go to! The manager is an awfull person, the rooms are not clean and the food isn't great and is very expensive. Only the location is good, while it is near by queen Elisabeth NP.

savannah lodge is a strange place, who on earth would build a resort with airstrip and golf course 3 km away from the congolese border?? well, a local businessman did, and it seems that a lot of mzungos use it as a stop between qenp and bwindi gorilla tracking. and for that it is ok. they have a very nice,...

We stayed only one night to see the climbing lions in Ishasha. Staff was very nice, the food was ok, you could choose a la carte but you could choose any meat dish. The room and bandas (round cabins) were clean. There was hot water. The grounds are gorgeous and very clean.

Expensive. No hot water. Poor water quality in swimming pool. Unreliable staff making up the bill. First they raised the agreed price significantly. After correction, they charged an exchange rate almost 10% higher then the rest of whole Uganda. I can't appreciate such behavior. Never ever again I will go there.

We arrived here after another long drive to Queen Elizabeth National Park for a safari the following day. The hotel is very impressive as you drive in, probably the most impressive I saw whilst in Uganda. The long driveway gives way to an impressive white building and palm trees. We were greeted by friendly reception staff and got some beers... More

This was the perfect location for a relaxation day. Very nice swimmingpool, sauna and steambath. The rooms are bright, open and fresh. A nice big bathroom. The food was really good, great taste! Wi-fi also was available, great!
