We are an eco-friendly campsite nestled on the boarder of Mburo National Park, located just 2 minutes drive from the Nshara park entrance gate. We offer custom bike safaris, walking safaris and game drives both inside and outside the park. We have a variety of accommodation suited to all budgets, from camping with your own equipment to lazy camping, to ensuite safari tents. We have a bar/restaurant where you can enjoy delicious meals prepared by our Chef Joseph. For those inclined to lazy days, relax in a hammock and enjoy the stunning view of rolling green hills while listening to the sounds of hundreds of birds singing.

They were able to accommodate our last minute booking when we decided to divert our vacation and stop at Lake Mburo for a night. The lodge itself is beautiful open air and has a great view. Also a great take off point for night drives, where the park ranger and guide picked us up right Leopards Rest after dinner for a sunset into night game drive. It definitely felt like camping, as there were all outdoor facilities and exposure to some bugs but overall facilities were clean and stuff was helpful

We stayed here for 3 nights in the lazy camping tents. Absolutely the best budget friendly option for those travelling to Lake Mburo. The lazy camping had raised beds in the tents with shared showers and toilets that were nice and clean. Food was amazing and great value. The staff were lovely and so accommodating. Would totally recommend to everyone! Will be coming back!

Not worth it the price (a safari tent is 150$ and our toilet was not flushing and there were mouse poo on our luggages at the end of the stay). The British girls in the front office were not kind and not welcoming. The local stuff had some really good members which should be empowered more. Only 3 bikes have no issues of chains/breaks/gears

As expected; budget safari tents (bathrooms in the open) and camping available. Meals can be ordered at the restaurant, which provides decent food. People are kind and helpful. If you’re looking for an affordable place close to the Mburo gate, look no further.

We stayed 2 nights in February 2021, and despite the global Covid outbreak, the camp was still open and clean! The staff was very professional, friendly and available for any of our requests. We did a mountain bike tour, and it was one of the best activity we did during our entire roadtrip in Uganda! Food was great too. Amazing sighting of a leopard in Lake Mburo national Park during our night drive in the park. Highly recommended for nature lovers!

We stayed for 3 nights in a luxury safari tent and had a great time. The lodge is right next to the park gate and zebra walk in the land next to the lodge. The restaurant has a great view and is the perfect place to relax. The food is very good and lots of options. There is also a pool table and some games. The safari tent was comfortable and had a wonderful outside bathroom. We found the accommodation options very convenient as it meant other friends could pick the accommodation based on their budget and preferences. The manager was very helpful in organising anything we needed.

Stayed here for one night on a overland trip. Katie the manager was very friendly and happy to chat. The shared bathroom block was amazing - the best shower I had in 2 weeks of camping through Kenya and Uganda. Excellent water pressure and hot hot water. The upstairs bar and sitting area was something I’d expect from a 5 star resort, with a good selection of alcohol and reasonable prices. Wish all our camping sites had been like Leopard’s Rest.

Came here for one night on an overland tour but would have stayed longer! The roads leading up to the camp are somewhat difficult and "adventurous" but don't let that dissuade you from this beautiful camp. The facilities were beautiful and felt perfect in the environment. The showers in the camping area were open and lovely with actual hot (!!!) water. Lots of hammocks and sitting areas with a nice bar. No wifi but, honestly, its better for it. Overall a great place to just chill and relax.
