The Humura site is laid out in levels. You park and check in at the lodge at the top. The rooms are down the hill in a pretty green space with the restaurant, a small pool and a business area. The rooms are good sized, clean with adequate closets and efficient A/C. The WiFi in the room worked most of the time. The bathroom has a shower and good counter space, although a space to hang a robe would be nice. Unfortunately, the bed was horrible – like a wooden board.
The staff was happy to accommodate us, but there were many little problems that made Humura feel like work in progress. The pool was dirty the afternoon we arrived, and they closed it the next day. The shower had erratic pressure and temperature, the toilet ran, and one of the sink’s faucet handles leaked, flooding the counter. The lovely outdoor restaurant was missing many menu items. Eventually staff had to suggest the things that they did have, which mainly came down to grilled meat and overcooked tilapia. Our tip: stick with the local dishes: both the fish stew and the beef cubes were great.
Humura Resorts is located close to the outskirts of Kampala. This alone makes me strongly recommend it if you plan to visit the source of the Nile and Jinja because you don’t have to cross the city to reach them. Kampala’s traffic is just one step short of impassible on some days.
