My wife, our 3 children and I spent 4 nights at Bunyonyi Safaris Resort from 21st - 25th July 2015. I had been to Uganda several times before. However, this was my first time in Kabale and I was nervous about what to expect, especially as I had my family with me. We were initially put off by the surroundings... More

Stayed there for a night. The food (dinner and breakfast) was delicious and the staff were very friendly and proffesional. The lounge area was also a very cozy place to chill and grab a beer before we headed off to spacious the rooms. Looking forward to having a longer stay there.

Stayed for two nights at this strategically located and beautiful establishment, that had a few areas that need attention. 1. Electricity; only if the intention of management is to ensure that the clients leave behind all their electronic appliances and actually have an unpluged holiday, then they are doing a good job of hoarding electricity coz there was no power...

Very fiendly hotel with nice accommodation and great views. Has solar powered lights for when power is down. Good base for the gorilla trek and 8km from main town. I was the only guest after the solar eclipse but I was looked after well. No wi-fi through.
