Everyone at the community camp was enthusiastic, attentive and keen to ensure our stay was successful. The rooms were basic, comfortable and clean with great views of the mountains. The gardens were well cared for. The camp was excellently designed. The food was delicious, especially the breakfast. We went on a two day hike organised by the Community Camp, it was a terrific opportunity to explore the mountains with the locals who shared their knowledge so generously with us. It was great to know that the money paid for our stay and tour went to support the local community.

the location of the hotel is set in the Rwenzori mountains where the views are spectacular. the property is well managed, a great value for the cost of the room. The staff is excellent, the hospitality is very good, the food is very good. when you stay here i recommend doing a community tour to see how the locals live, and function as a community.

We had a chance to see the three horned chameleon and the forest walk was fun the view of the portal peaks is equally amazing. Other activities include the community walk, mountain hike this can last 8hours to and from. You can access this place by bodaboda from Kasese if you are traveling on a tight budget. Branch off from a place called Kisanyarazi along Fort portal Kasese road.

I’ve stayed here before, and this time it was even better! 1km before the entrance to Rwenzori Mountains National Park at Nyakalengija is Ruboni Community Camp. Accommodation is in bandas, or there’s a campsite space if you bring your own tent. The bandas all now have flushing toilets, and solar power. The beds are clean, comfortable and all with (new) mosquito nets. There are en-suite showers although hot water is still upon request, especially during the colder months. Food needs to be ordered a minimum of 1 hour (and preferably a few hours) before the meal, but the food here was the best I had during my whole Uganda trip. There is no phone reception and no internet (yet!) at the camp, so borrow a book, play a game and enjoy the peace and quiet! The staff are fantastic. Don’t be surprised to hear the nightwatchman patrolling around the camp at night. A special mention for the yummy breakfast banana pancakes!
