We've done a 2-day hike starting from Ruboni camp. It was great. Nice walk, a few chameleons, good food, great guiding, lovely mountain views,... I also like the concept of the community camp. Fantastic that these people live for the community. Lots of respect.
We loved our stay here and are only sorry it was just for one night. Communication prior to our stay was so easy and informative throughout our visit with the staff, from arrival to departure. The rooms were quaint and rustic with everything you need, electric for charging, even hot water! The views from the rooms were fabulous. We stayed in the cottage at the top of the property. We did a community nature walk during our visit and would really recommend. It was the right amount of hiking, not too strenuous with fabulous views of the mountains, gave you a taste for the hike. Our guide Coleb was very friendly and knowledgeable teaching all about the plants and wildlife in the area. It was organised by Ruboni. The food was delicious. Attached some photos. Very generous, tasty portions. Compliments to the chef! There is no WiFi/phone signal but really this was a nice welcome break, as you could really switch off and relax. If you do however need to contact the outside world you can take a short 10 minute walk to get signal or visit another nearby lodge which has WiFi. Looking forward to returning in the future.…
we are happy we stayed at the ruboni community camp while our uganda trip. it feels pure being there with all the green surrounding yourself. from the veranda you have a wonderful view over the forest, mountains and the beautiful tropical garden. food was very good, different breakfast options, juices. we had a bungalow with warm blankets. you need them as it gets fresh at night. during the day you have many options for activity. we did the hill hike with lazarus, a great guy from the community. we had good talks, a rough hike and precious memories. webale to all the people from the community working for the camp and being such a peaceful place.
We had a great stay at this wonderful community-owned and operated lodge in the Rwenzoris. Our room was comfortable and cozy, with lots of warm blankets for the chilly night. The staff was super helpful and thoughtful, and set us up for our three-day trek, which quite an adventure! Our guide Apuli was terrific, very knowledgeable. Still don't know how he spotted the chameleons he showed us, our porters took very good care of us, and the cook made the best fried chicken! We planned the two-night Mahoma trek, but proposed a change to a longer trek when we saw that the hiking distance for each day was 6-8 km. Word to the wise - stick with the standard trek! I think the given hiking distances are not entirely accurate, and we got in a little over our heads. It didn't help that we were there as the rainy season was getting started, and rain it did our second day. We got to our second night camp site, and it started to rain, hard and nonstop, for about 14 hours. We actually thought we might not be able to hike out that day as planned, as the trail that we hiked in on had essentially become a river. But our amazing guide and porters built us a bridge and got us on our way. It was a long, damp hike, but beautiful scenery. When we got back to the lodge, later in the day than we hoped, the manager had already called ahead to our next lodging (The Elephant Home, also highly recommended) to advise we would be arriving late.…
The Ruboni Camp is wonderful place in the rainforest nature with the separate houses, very clean and comfortable. The staff are very friendly and helpful. With the help of our general guide Charles from Gorilla Booking Ltd and the manager of Ruboni community we received the best trekking leaders "Jocas and team" and the best chefs and porters. Hiking in Rwenzori Mountain is not posible without the support from these guys.
We really enjoyed our one night stay at Ruboni Community Camp. The location is great and the rooms quiet and clean. The food was super tasty and they were happy to make me a vegetarian option. There is minimal power so remember to charge devices before you arrive and take a torch/solar lamp.
We stayed at Ruboni Community Camp for one night before a 3 Day hike at Rwenzori Mountains National Park. The Room was big, the bed was nice. Exactly what you need ahead of a big hiking tour. The day after, we started our hike which was also organized by the Ruboni Community. Woth us were 5 Porters, a ranger as well as our guide Jacob and the chef Deo. The service they offered was fantastic. They organized gum boots and sleeping mats for us. The amazing porters even carried a table and chairs that we could enjoy the great food from Deo at the rest camps. Our guide Jacob and the ranger had great knowledge and adapted the hiking pace to our needs. We can very much recommend a hike with the Ruboni Community! But don’t forget to take a lot of warm clothes with you!
This place is in the heaven of tropical rainforest mountains of Uganda with facilities well-provided for your stay. I had great communication with the owner and we were hosted by his hospitable staff for 2 nights, which I wish was longer. I just don't recommend the tours, but would suggest the dance performance
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.
