I've been to Panorama a few times through the years. The bandas are simple, clean and well-kept. The prices are reasonable and the grounds are beautiful. It's only a simple walk from the Kalangala ferry, and during the day you can easily stroll to several other hotels (which are far more expensive and less accommodating in my opinion) to swim...

We took ferry from Entebbe to Sesse Island. It took about 3 and half hours. Arnold, the owner of the Lodge came to pick us up at the Doc. The lodge was actually only couple of mins walk. It is a family run business and very quiet. No hot water for shower. but I didn't need one. I paid only... More

So booked I for two days in Kampala with the intention of investigating other places when in Sese.We ended up staying for a week. We loved the privacy of the cottages and the serenityof the place.

I stayed there over the Christmas Holiday. Unlike the rest of the beach hotels that were booming with loud music and activity, Panorama was quiet and serene. Allowing the whole family to have some good quiet time. The hotel is closely supervised by the owning family so you get the best value for your money. I definately will make another... More

The Panorama Cottages are just a five minutes walk from the beach. The small Bandas are furnished with everything you need. The most amazing thing about the Panorama Cottages are the people working there. Their friendliness and openness is beyond everything I have ever experienced on Uganda or Africa for that matter. The food selection is broad enough and it... More

If you want to get away from it all, this is the spot. Arnold and staff are very friendly and helpful. The garden is full of creatures, not all invited. Cottages not luxury, but okay for Uganda, and a great value. Breakfast buffet is the perfect start. Don't order fish here or anywhere on the island. Surprisingly expensive considering it... More

I was at Panorama lodges this year December 2012 and I have some positives things to say about the place. The journey is about 4 hours from Port Entebbe. As I was a sole traveller for the first time,I have to say I was generally feeling safe enough on the Island and the lodges. The staff are friendly,courteous and will... More
