Close to Quin Elizabeth National Park (8 KM) and Bwindi Impenetrable Forest Game Reserve (43 KM). Cottages well equipped in a large, nice area. There is a swimming pool, not to big but it is possible to swim. Nice restaurant, kind staff
Was ok stay. Room had out dated decor, shower didn’t work well. Food was ok. Staff were nice. Grounds surrounding the hotel are very nice. Only stayed one night, was quiet. Internet not great. Was some confusion with the bill in the morning.
I have stayed at the Savannah while working in Kihihi for the past three years. The garden is gorgeous, the food is very good, there are games galore and the rooms are clean and comfortable. However, what sets this hotel apart is the exceptional staff. This includes everyone from the guard at the front gate to the front desk to the restaurant and bar to the housekeeping staff and everyone else. Gloria, who works at reception, knew it was my birthday. She planned a beautiful surprise party for me at dinner, after I had been working all day in the villages. Arnold, Bose and Ian, along with the rest of the staff set up a table on the lawn covered with a canopy with lights. There were balloons and a bonfire and even a delicious cake with my name on it, delivered by a singing hotel staff (almost everyone!)! I actually fought back tears when I saw what they had done. My husband felt like he had been outdone bigtime, haha! It was sincerely a night to remember. I know most people who stay at the Savannah are tourists, but for us it is a special treat to stay there for a few days while working for a month each year all over Uganda. We are always grateful for their warm hospitality.…
It can be somewhat unnerving being the only guests in a large hotel. We stayed in this hotel after our memorable gorilla tracking experience. The hotel is best described as having faded charm. It must have been magnificent in its day but now has a slightly rundown feel. The individual bungalows are large enough but the bathroom didn’t quite drain properly apart from this everything worked. The extremely large grounds and garden are a joy, especially when set against the grim reality of the villages outside. On a hot day the pool was a highlight and beautifully clean thanks to its attendant who seemed very eager to set us up with towels and chairs.
Accommodation is provided in separate bandas with ensuite showers and nets. The rooms feel a bit basic for the price but the hotel has very good facilities with nice swimming pool, games room, piano etc. Electricity was reliable when we stayed but wi-fi was inconsistent. There is an excellent restaurant with full English breakfast served each morning and friendly, helpful staff. The gardens are beautiful and well maintained. The hotel is well-positioned as it is only a few minutes drive to the Southern gate of Ishasha sector where tree-climbing lions may be found if you are lucky.
