This was such a beautiful lodge set in such close proximity to the gate of QE national park. The food was amazing and so plentiful. The rooms were beautiful, with comfortable beds and plenty of hot water for a shower. The owner was such a delight and he really couldn't do enough to make a wonderful stay here, purely magical. Thank you for the wonderful surprise drive, the leopard was simply spectacular...

This was my second time at Kasenyi safari camp and it keeps getting better! The rooms are spacious and well equipped with all amenities you could need. Everyone is friendly and helpful. The food is great, and they were good about accomplishing food preferences. Philip, the owner, runs a great lodge in a perfect location right on the very edge of the park. Animals occasionally come into the camp area making for the best experiences ever. A well stocked bar in the comfortable dining area makes socializing a pleasant surprise, not to mention the good wifi. This camp is a must when in Queen Elizabeth NP.

Fantastic lodge with great views, friendly staff and a superb 5 course menu. Felt very looked after and was a welcome retreat after our day long game drives. Woke up to gorgeous sun rises and bird song! If you want to be (comfortably) immersed in the African wilderness, this is the place for you. Just watch out for the mosquitos as there are quite a lot around in the evenings. Highly recommend.

Loved the tent and the location - on the border with the Queen Elizabeth national park, the animals really don't know what a border is. We could hear hippos munching away behind our tent at night. This was thrilling for us as it was exactly the experience we wanted. Lots of wildlife in the park close at hand, and even some souvenir shopping. The staff were very good, especially Ruth. Great to meet the owner Philip and we appreciated the chat. The food was plenty and lovely, and we enjoyed the evening fire and cats. Rooms were clean, loved the tents and the balcony views. Room service was great and the shower spacious! The view across the crater was spectacular and we loved the fact that you can see the entire shape of the crater from breakfast/dinner. Wonderful stay. Thank you!

Enjoyed our stay here albeit brief. We arrived in the early evening. Nice welcome. Saw a leopard and 2 lions on the game drive- the park has a good density of animals. Only hiccup was my cpap. We let the gal who gave us our welcome briefing know I had cpap. She said the rooms could accommodate cpap. After a nice dinner we were escorted down a long hill to our beautiful lodge room and lo and behold they couldn’t handle the cpap electricity. So here I was down a long dark hill. They gave us a whistle for emergencies and then someone would come to escort you back up. Well I wasn’t going to blow a whistle over cpap. So it wasn’t an ideal restful night but other than that it was a great property and stay in the Kasenyi area.
