Our stay at Turaco Treetops was wonderful. The location is stunning, surrounded by the forest; totally immersed in nature. The pool was clean and great for kids. The rooms are spacious with a hot shower and balcony overlooking the forest and you can hear chimps and all kinds of birds. The communal area is comfortable and stylish and the food delicious and Michael makes great cocktails! Thanks for having us Turaco!

My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights in September and it was wonderful - excellent staff and service, VERY delicious food, spacious, stunning rooms and an overall great feel. The beds are huge and so comfortable, the rooms are private, showers hot with dreamy shower heads and the views are spectacular - chimps and turacos moving through the trees. We can't wait to come back! LOVE the pool area. THANK YOU TURACO TREETOPS <3

Our family met up with friends for a weekend break and had a lovely stay. The cottages are well designed, spacious and very clean. The shower was a delight and we appreciated the double bench for luggage. The managers were very welcoming and on hand throughout our visit to answer any questions. The food was European and a very good standard. Portion sizes were perfect and service was professional with food for our large group being served together. We appreciated the vegetarian options too. Enjoyed our forest hike and the guide was very knowledgeable. A bit muddy and wet in places so I recommend waterproof boots if you plan on this excursion just in case. Overall I think this lodge offers very good value for money and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to friends and family.

We stayed 4 nights with family and friends in this beautiful new lodge. IF. you love nature, being woken up by birds chirping (turacos and others), stunning forest views and you are in need of a quiet getaway to relax then this is the place for you. A beautiful place, perfect location and well managed. WiFi is only available in the main lounge which I found also nice, it obliges you to rest and appreciate nature more and whenever in the room. Swimming pool is available and was always clean, a play ground for kids with a small zip line is also there for those more adventurous. The staffs were very friendly and available: they always responded well to requests. Bar is appropriately stocked and drinks were always available and cold. The lodge offers free water to keep rehydrating. Restaurant was ok, w ehad no complaints. NB don't order for a Negroni cocktail you will get something really weird tasting of coconut (maybe that cocktail should be called something else)... For the rest all good. I was pleased and all the guests with me were all satisfied (we booked the whole lodge). We had a brief 1 hour trek in the Forest in front of the lodge (not yet Kibale Forest but part of it) with a lodge guide, which was very nice saw a great variety of trees, monkeys and birds including the beautiful blue Turaco. We also did notice forest elephant poo and tracks but did not encounter any ;-) I definitely reccomend Turaco Treetops, I will be back: a nice discovery and a perfect getaway from the chaotic Kampala City.

Very relaxing and comfortable. Hot showers, nice pool. Right next to the forest. Our family relaxed by the pool. Staff were very friendly! Had a wonderful forest walk and heard the chimps in the distance. Will need to go again soon.
