We stopped overnight on the way back from Kidepo and were welcomed with excellent service, spacious comfortable accomodation and home cooked meals. Our Rhino trek was spectacular with many families seen together including the 2 month old baby Rhonda.

We spent three absolutely great days here in July 2020. COVID SOP's were well adhered to and the place was spotlessly clean. The staff are exceptionally friendly, Stephen one of the grounds keepers was particularly excellent with my children. Great playground for kids and lots of board games/toys in the lounge, small but nice pool. We're all still talking about the food! Fantastic homely food in HUGE portions. The rooms are spotless and very nicely laid out, very comfy pillows! The only small negative was that the bed was too hard for our preference. The lodge will arrange a Rhino Trek or Nature Walk for you, try and ask for Opio as your guide if you can, he's amazing! All round a fantastic lodge to stay in, highly recommended.

The Amuka Lodge is a treasure within Uganda. We visited with our family and loved the lodge, the pool, the food, and the cottages. The staff were attentive and friendly. We will definitely make a return trip!

I love Amuka lodge. My family lives in Uganda and it’s our #1 getaway spot. Wonderful staff, beautiful and clean lodging, and INCREDIBLE food. The rooms are tucked away so you can enjoy the peace and quiet of camping, with all the accomdoations of a hotel.
