This large house in the middle of a tree compound fills my heart with gladness ans joy, with the feeling to be at rest and in fresh air. Birds are singing, and in the morning they come for a walk in the grass . If i need to be alone, the veranda is there. If i need some people, they are also there.The love of the housemother is so refreshing and her food delicious.I can prepaire my coffee anytime and sleep in a nice clean and beautiful room.

Our family had the chance to travel to Uganda this summer while my husband was there working for the month of July. We were so grateful to have found the Connect Africa Guesthouse to stay at. It was comfortable with far more than enough space for us and our 3 kids (ages 7, 11, 11). You can actually experience village life (it is about 45 minutes outside of Kampala in a village called Jogo) while still having electricity, a stove, a mini fridge and running water to bathe in. Annette made delicious Ugandan breakfast for us daily, kept the kitchen stocked with clean water and the most delicious fruit you’ve ever tasted, and even did our wash. Charles, Lynn, and Raymond were incredibly helpful in familiarizing us with necessary information about the area and culture, as well as introducing us to fun things like trying sugar cane right off the stalk behind the house. Raymond also took us to visit and read at a school nearby which was really fun. They were also able to connect us with a reliable driver who took us grocery shopping and on weekend trips to Jinja and Murchison Falls. However, the absolute best part of our time there was getting to know the neighborhood children who are part of the connect Africa program. We got to help tutor/read with them on Saturdays and the remainder of the week they came after school to play soccer, swing or read with my kids. It was so fun to watch true friendships grow, which definitely made it hard for us to leave! We always felt safe and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We’d highly recommend this spot to any family, group, couple, traveling near Kampala.

I visited Connect Africa in April 2017. We stayed at the Connect Africa guest house in the village of Joggo - it is a lovely compound well cared for by local people. Right in the compound we could participate in activities supported by the foundation at the new vocational center (cooking, carpentry and tailoring classes) and on Saturday when children arrive for enrichment programs. We sang, drummed, played and learned all together. The cook Annette was wonderful, making fresh passionfruit juice every day and local foods (we requested all vegetarian and were quite pleased with all the choices). The caretaker Raymond walked us through Joggo to see the village and meet people. The staff of Connect Africa picked us up at the airport. They arranged for us to visit local schools and meet with their teachers and children supported by CA. We attended a Ugandan dance show and did some shopping in Kampala. Lynn convinced us to ride a boda-boda - the main mode of transportation via motorcycle taxi - with someone she trusted to take us. It was so exciting to travel the way most Ugandans do. The guest house itself is beautiful. The furnishings are simple and comfortable. The bedrooms and bathrooms clean and supplied with basic needs. Lynn and Charles were available to us to answer questions, introduce us to locals and make sure were we immersed in our Uganda experience. This was my first trip to Africa and while culturally it is completely different from any travel I have done I felt completely at ease the entire trip. Thank you to Lynn, Charles and the entire Connect Africa family. If you want an authentic Uganda experience, this is it.

I visited Connect Africa in the summer of 2014. I stayed in the guest house for the three weeks I was there. Every morning I woke up to a delicious breakfast, and every night I had another amazing meal. I taught at a near by school for two of the weeks then tutored a small group of girls the last week. Every Saturday at the guest house I helped with the educational enrichment. Everyone at the guest house, school, and the children on Saturdays were welcoming and so kind. I was only 17 when I travelled here, but I always felt comfortable and well accommodated. Every aspect of my trip was more than I had hoped for. I would love to return soon. Connect Africa is an extraordinary place and experience.

I spent a week at the Connect Africa Guest House in Joggo village on the outskirts of Kampala. It was one of those few trips in life that really makes an impact on you. I came away from Uganda with a strong feeling that every American, in fact every Westerner, at some point in their life should seek out this kind of experience. What is wonderful about this guest house is that it gives you an opportunity to spend quality time in a small African community outside of the big city, and yet you get to stay in clean, comfortable, peaceful, safe, friendly accommodations. And actually Kampala is not far either - between 30 and 50 minutes depending on traffic. I traveled into the city a couple of times by a combination of Boda-boda (motorcycle taxi) and Taxi (minivan from the town of Seeta). I was well looked after by Charles, the Connect Africa Co-Director, Raymond, Getrude, Annette, Emma and everyone. The food was excellent - simple, local and healthy. I am a vegetarian and they were great about accommodating my needs. And then there are the children! Beautiful, friendly, inquisitive children. I have traveled quite a bit over the past few years on 'conventional vacations' and while they were very enjoyable, they tend to blend together in my mind. I highly recommend a visit to Kampala, Joggo, and the Connect Africa Guest House. For a life experience that will leave a lasting impression on you. I am looking forward to going back in the near future, and at some point I would love to bring my 22 year old daughter.
