We stayed for one night as part of our visit to Lake Mburo national park. The place is wonderfully situated and very serene and quiet, and the surrounding and views can be enjoyed from the pleasant outside dining and relaxing area, as well as from the patios in front of each tent. The staff was friendly and service minded. There... More

Stayed here one night yo break apart the drive from Queen Elizabeth National Park to Kampala. This place was incredible, albeit slightly scary for someone who isn't used to lizards in/near her room. First off, the room was great. Had two beds, a sink area (no running water to a big jug), nice toilet, and good shower. They filled the... More

Stayed here for 2 nights at the start of a wildlife tour of Uganda. A very peaceful place with brilliant tented accommodation. The staff were all friendly and the food was great. Bush shower was a first for me and was no different from mains except Moses had to carry the water to the back of our tent for us.... More

We stayed two nights in this beautiful tented camp. The welcome was warm and genuine. The tent was amazing, Large mosquito net tent covered most of the room. Beds were comfortable and it even had a flushing toilet. The shower was a bucket affair and there was sufficient hot water for me to wash my hair if I was quick.... More

We stayed here on our way to Bwindi and were very impressed . A friendly welcoming party greeted us. The tents were very clean , comfortable beds and beautiful hot showers. The Dining area is a wonderful place to relax and chat with other travellers. Food was delicious. Service excellent.

Great lodge, great service, great food, great rooms....don't miss the boat ride on Lake Mburo to see the fantastic birds and hippos! Uganda has some fabulous wildlife lodges and fabulous people and this is one I would highly recommend.

We only stayed here one night on our way to Bwindi. The camp was wonderful and set in a beautiful location. The only downside was it rained the entire time for the afternoon and evening we were there so could not enjoy the splendid view, until the next morning when we had breakfast. The food was delicious and we were... More

We stayed here for two nights as part of an 8-day Safari in Uganda. Our tour agency actually had placed us at Arcadia Cottages in the park which we found awful when we arrived. We complained to our tour organizer and they were able to set us up here. What a difference. The accommodations did not feel like a tent... More

Such an amazing place to stay. Quiet and extraordinarily comfortable. The staff are wonderful and attentive. The meals were wonderful and served with a flourish! Management was fantastic and friendly. The location can't be beat. Be prepared for hot afternoons and cool evenings. The early morning safari was the best. The River cruise was good, but not as good as... More

We ended up staying here because our original hotel, Mhingo lake lodge, was overbooked. This accommodation was in Lake Mburo national park, and was beautiful. The tents were luxuriously appointed and very clean, with panaromic views of the park. What I liked about the camp was how eco it was. They left hot and cold water in flasks to wash... More
