#17 of 262 Specialty lodging in Kampala
Set on the Muyenga hill between the trees & a view of the lake, Kampala forest is the perfect place to enjoy an elevated position. A cozy & delightfully relaxing chill spot suitably located in the city but far enough from the hustle and bustle.

I recommend the restaurant because it has a laidback atmosphere with a very peaceful view of the lake. The food is quite good, especially their barbecue meats, pizzas and milkshakes. The service can be slow during it's busier hours.

We went there for a drink and were lucky to get a great table, first row. The views overlooking lake Victoria are spectacular. We ended up eating a chicken, the beers were cold, what else can you ask for?

I just discovered Kampala Forest Resort on this trip, and we were so happy to have found it! It's truly an oasis in the craziness of Kampala. The grounds and view are amazing, and we found the service to be exceptional. (I know other reviews have complained about the service - many seem to be from people eating out at the hotel vs staying there.) The front desk staff went out of their way on several occasions to get things done for us. We had several meetings, and it was a perfect spot for that as well. The food is good (not great, but consistent and priced for good not great), drinks and coffee well made, and the rooms are spacious and very comfortable. The location is also perfect for our work in Namuwongo. We will definitely be back when we are in Kampala!

I had high expectations for this place since the buffet dinner was pricey. Unfortunately the food was not great. Was served cold. Ambiance is great although could do with a bit more lighting. We couldn't take any good pictures since it was quite dark. The staff were quite friendly

Kampala Forest Resort is located in the Muyenga suburb of Kampala. It has a fantastic setting in nature. The current occupants have done a great job of developing the old property into rooms without too much modifications and most importantly, without touching a single tree! Monkeys still dart about and there's always birdsong. It is a great location for afternoon beers and sundowners. Although they have a wide menu, the food good - not great. Rooms are fairly priced. Service is a bit slow and inattentive.
