We stayed in one of the group tents. The accommodation was lovely and we had no problems. The staff is extremely kind and attentive. The facilities are beautiful, clean, and relaxing. There are lots of activities to do in the area that the staff at Entusi will help plan.

I recently returned from a brief two-day visit to Entusi with a small group on a retreat organized by the Global Livingston Institute at Entusi. Everything about the experience was wonderful. The staff was especially great. From the logistics of getting us there, helping us get settled into the rooms (I stayed in private tent), to organizing our meals, and...

Entusi is an absolutely stunning place for any kind of vacation. Their social mission and work with the surrounding community is inspiring and the accommodations are the epitome of "glamping." The food is delicious and the staff are always available to help you organize any activity! They even have a projector you can connect your computer on so you can...

I had heard about this place through some friends a few months back and had intended to go for some time. Finally it got into a short vacation schedule. I arrived to kabale by bus, took a taxi to the dock and then entusi provided a small motorboat out to their center, a 15 minute ride. The trip on the...

I have to start by saying that I love this location and the staff are incredible - they are warm, friendly, flexible and will do anything to make the stay enjoyable. The location is stunning, with easy trips to nearby islands. For these, I would give five stars, easily. However, the place is let down by the cottages, which are...

What a place! The staff is wonderful and really goes out of their way to make you feel comfortable and special. There is always coffee/tea, good food, a warm fire place surrounded by bean bags and the SPECTACULAR view of the lake! Rooms are basic and clean, but you will never be in them, so that is all you need....

I came to Entusi for the music festival and to experience Uganda overall. The resort was beautiful. The staff was amazing and accommodating. The food was delicious and fresh. Sitting by the lake was peaceful and the evenings were spectacular. I would go back in a second!

I came to Entusi to celebrate my 30th birthday with some friends and I'm so glad I did. From beginning to end the whole experience was absolutely brilliant. The accommodation is wonderful: my tent had a private balcony and a feather duvet - bliss! The food is fantastic and plentiful, though occasionally a little rich for a muzungu who's been...
