A true oasis in the middle of the park. The staff looked after us superbly from the moment we arrived. This was our second visit and we were treated like old friends. Meals were superb, the bush showers worked a treat and the 'tents' were great. It was one of our groups birthday whilst we were there and the staff... More

We stayed at Ishasha Wilderness Camp on our recent trip to Uganda; what a wonderful experience! it's nestled in the woods, private, quiet. The rooms were beautiful with the largest bed I've ever seen! Although some might have an issue with the shower facilities (the staff adds the hot water when needed), we found it to be a great part... More

The tented camp, Ishasha Wilderness Camp is simple, beautiful, well equipped. Meals were delicious and the wonderful friendly staff were attentive at all times. Beautifully situated on the river. The Ishasha plains are breathtaking with incredible bird life and of course, the added treat of seeing the arboreal lions!

Stayed at this tented camp for two nights by the river. The tents were luxury in that they had separate bathroom facilities and a huge bedroom and a balcony with a view of the river. There was a well stocked bar for sundowners and well prepared and served food.

A real gem hidden away in a forest/wooded area by the Ntungwe river but close enough to experience open Savannah type scenes and wildlife. The camp itself, the welcome, the accommodation, the food breakfast, lunch - packed lunch alternative for safari - and dinner are all very good. Rooms are either side of the reception/dining area and are spread out.... More

Don't let the name fool you - Ishasha Wilderness Camp is not an ordinary camp! The site is situated on a beautiful piece of land next to a river. The tents are spacious, luxurious, and comfortable.

The Wilderness camp is really nice – the camps staffs are wonderful, very attentive and really helpful. I think the tents which are quite close to the river are well designed and very comfortable. I personally did not like to environmental loo, it was awkward to use – And I found having to order hot water to take a shower... More

Two faces: - Relax and comfort: Very good service and food, nice location, nice views over a small river, quietness... - Exciting: Direct contact with the enviroment (maybe a buffalo can cross the river a few meters away from you while you have dinner... it happened)
