After traveling over 18 hours, it was recommended that we stay put for 3 days in order to prepare for our Gorilla trek. We were told that seeing the gorillas in Uganda is more challenging than Rwanda which was our next destination. Beautiful hotel grounds and surroundings, room was superb, excellent staff.

The stay at Lake Victoria Serena was absolutely serene. The staff were very friendly and the atmosphere very good. View of the lake was breathtaking. The only thing I didn't like about the place was the house keeping ringing the door bell at 9 to clean up. This may be ok if one intends to get out of bed early....
