This off the beaten path gem was one of the highlights of our time in Uganda. We did it on local transport which makes for an adventure - boda boda around the lake. The promontory location makes it very private and all cabins have great views west over Lake Bunyoni. The swimming is fabulous and there are also great walks up the mountain behind for great views down the entire length of the lake. Owner Wilfred and wife Irene, together with their lovely staff, will ensure that your stay is as relaxing as possible. Food was excellent, alternating a vegetarian day with a meat day. Hot water heated with Eucalyptus wood and solar power work well. The birdlife is abundant and the bats provide a dramatic show in the evening. Thank you all, a great three day stay.

The staff of Irene and Wilfrey were fabulous and friendly. Had great bonfire and barbecue with other guests in the evening which was really fabulous experience. Profits go to support a school and sustainable farming set up by owners. Unfortunately, the place is fairly run down and could do with a bit of TLC e.g. the swimming jetty is damaged, some rooms leak, the barbecue area is untidy. Also there are no lights or toilets in the rooms which could have been made more obvious in the room descriptions online. They give you a solar lamp for the evening. Food is also quite expensive ($35 full board) and although big portions it is quite bland and all the bread was completely stale. A little effort could turn this place from a pleasant but uncomfortable experience into something really world-class.

Simple room with large balcony with an amazing view over the lake. Quiet, only the birds. A fire place with seats on the lake front. A jetty if you wish a swim. Breakfast and dinner are delicious, with many vegetables and fruits grown in the garden. Wilfried is extremely welcoming, sharing meals with the guests.The staff is discreet and supportive. The surroundings are so quiet. No traffic on the road allowing pleasant hikes with panoramic views over le lake. We stayed five nights, and it was difficult to make up our minds to leave.

Thank you Wilfried and staff for two amazing hospitable overnights! Since it's an eco accommodation not all of the lodges have electricity (yet) - which makes it special we found. However the places are comfortable and clean. Also the bathroom facilities add to that, eco-toilet and outdoor shower with hot water on request. Its quite a drive to/from Kabale and there are no shops close by which is why its recommended to join breakfast and other meals at the lodge. A few choices are offered for breakfast; lunch and dinner are set; We very much enjoyed the homey atmosphere. Beautiful views of Lake Bunyonyi from the lodge and surrounding area. Possibility of different walks/hikes in the area, canoeing, visiting the school next door which is one of the local projects of the lodge's owner. Secluded escape - highly recommended! We'd love to come again for another visit!
