We stayed there for 2 nights during our stay in Uganda whilst tracking chimps at Kibale Forest.
At first, my friend and I (were given Room 1 and my sister and her husband were given Room 2). Note: Room 1 does not have an outdoor bathroom! So when I found out the perks of my sisters room, I asked the lady at reception kindly to possibly change to another with an outdoor br. They were more than happy to move us over to room closest to the reception.
Each room has it's own balcony and most of the times you can see the weaver birds in trees nearby.
As everything there is run on solar power, make sure you conserve as much as you can and bring plenty of insect repellant as there are many bugs around that area.
It is also wise to tuck in mosquito nets under your mattress here as there are cracks in the floor boards!
Loved the food and you definitely need to try their Creme Brulee!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Chimps’ Nest is built on a beautiful piece of land with a splendid view of Kibale Forest and the snow capped peaks of the Rwenzori Mountains. As the name implies, Chimps’ Nest is often visited by chimps, but also other monkeys and habitats of Kibale Forest. It is a true birder's paradise; virtually all 350 bird species of Kibale Forest and the bordering Bigodi Swamps can be observed on the premises. ... more less
