Lovely area, really beautiful views, lots of bird life to photograph. Pool ( lower pool not full while we were there). Rooms comfy but slightly less room to walk around bed, mosi net, food ok but not gluten aware. Staff were quite new but worked hard.

i agree with all the other reviewers. This lodge is like something out of a fairy tale. The rooms are like nothing I have ever experienced before. I stayed here in November for two nights as part of a tour around Uganda. The food served in the restaurants was very good, nothing to write home about though. Friendly staff It... More

This place is beautiful. We spent three days camping at Kingfisher Lodge. The food was good, the staff helpful when we realised we'd forgotten our sleeping bags!, and the location is perfect for entry to Queen Elizabeth National Park. We've been to many lodges in Uganda, but Kingfisher is one of the best we've tried. It's designed well, with nice... More

The lodge is not too big, with just a few small bungalows but a big swimming pool and terrace with the most amazing view (definitely the best view I've gotten to see in my life so far) of the Queens Elisabeth's National Park, where we could observe wildlife (in our case- a familyoif elephants just walking by) while sipping cold...

Arriving at Kingfisher lodge was like arriving to a place from the Lord of the Rings! The lodge consists of small white houses and huts with wanding paths between them. I had my own round hut with a great balcony overlooking Queen Elisabeth National Park - the view was stunning! Apparently there are elephants grassing below the lodge, but I... More

An incredible lodge with amazing views. Staff are friendly and helpful, and accommodate your safari needs. Sit on your balcony and watch the elephants roam in Queen Elizabeth Park below you. The lodgings are spacious and private. The pool was very refreshing after the early morning safari.

I stayed here for 2 nights. The rooms are small but comfortable and the water is piping hot. I was unlucky that the familly from hell were above my room so sleep was not great. The food consists of a very average buffet for dinner and an OK breakfast. The hotel over looks the rift valley, unfortunately they were burning... More

Very friendly staff, including updates on the English football results from the waiter at dinner! Beautiful views, swimming pool,pretty gardens. Food excellent. Approach road was bad, but once in the grounds of the lodge, it was like a different world.

What potential this hotel has, an amazing panoramic view of the great rift valley with picturesque little cottages,being a solo traveller I can only offer a view on my accomodation which was compact and comfotable and the shower gave almost instant hot water. With its beautiful gardens and friendly willing staff it is an ideal starting point for game drives,... More

This is a reasonably large complex of individual lodges built high on a hillside about the vast plains below. The accommodation varies enormously, from very small one room units to large family buildings with several bedroom. We were lucky enough to be allocated a very large family lodge with two floors and veranda overlooking the plains below. I was excellent... More
