Makindye Country Club
Ranked #2 of 210 Kampala B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 27, 2013

We travel regularly twice a year through Kampala on our way west and north for various projects in Uganda. We thoroughly recommend the Makindye Country Club as a base for project teams and volunteers, particularly for those who have never visited Africa before. It provides a safe and secure environment and its so nice having an English manager to speak to (Kathy). The staff we have come to know over the years and they have been courteous and exemplary in their service to us and our teams.
The swimming pool, free internet, tennis courts and gardens are a real oasis in a busy and dusty city. Good access to Entebbe airport.
We much prefer Makindye to the central hotels which are noisy and clogged with traffic.

Room Tip: The rooms at the bottom (below the swimming pool) are quiet and have their own lounge and kitchen fa...

I have stayed at Makindye Country Club many times and find the staff so very friendly and helpful. The service is of a high standard while prices are very reasonable compared to many other places around town. The location in Makindye is close to the city, airport and lake. Next time you visit Uganda, do yourself a favour and visit for accommodation or simply a meal in a relaxing atmosphere.

We stayed here for 4 nights after working in the North East of Uganda. We were weary and the club offers so much comfort and excellent service from the staff that we soon felt refreshed.
Nothing is too hard for the staff and the rooms and surroundings are most comfortable.
This will be our base when we next return.
Thank-you for being our oasis.

I return here annually for a week-long course and always enjoy the warm welcome and excellent food. We are very well looked after indeed and the MCC team always go above and beyond to ensure a pleasant and smooth-running course. Highly recommended!

I had a excellent weeks stay at the Country Club. My room was very clean and contained a comfortable bed with mosquito net, ample wardrobe space, electric fan and small safe (not big enough for iPad mini or SLR camera but there is a larger safe available in the office).
I shared a bathroom (toilet and shower) between 2 rooms.
There was also a kitchen with kettle, fridge, freezer, utensils etc in my block.
The staff were unwaveringly friendly and helpful, including helping me with my safe and changing some US dollars for Ugandan shillings.
The food was very good (including some tasty desserts!). Not amazing value for money but perfectly fine.
The conference facilities were very good and the lush landscaped surroundings were a welcome contrast to the bustling city of Kampala.
I would recommend this place and be happy to return.
Free wifi was a bonus!

Room Tip: Avoid rooms in the entrance block. Quieter rooms in the conference centre and next to the fitness ce...

I stayed at the MCC during my first trip to Uganda. It was fabulous. Fantastic facilities, friendly staff, good security and great food.

The rooms are somewhat basic. Most of them do not have a bathroom, and there is no air-con. However, with mosquito nets covering the windows/bed and a fan, it was not a problem. Everything is very clean and room-service is great. Can't wait to go back. :)

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms faceing the street

The Makindye Country Club is a family oriented club where the whole family can relax and enjoy the facilities. The staff are remarkable friendly and the new management team are continuously making improvements to services and the menu.

Facilities include two tennis courts, squash courts, a large pool, a smaller pool for toddlers, a decent gym with weights, cross trainers, bikes and treadmills , a fully equipped children's park and play area, a 'beach' volleyball court, wireless internet and a business centre, a tv room, a DVD library, a library and of course a fully stocked bar and restaurant.

Recently the club introduced Salsa classed on a Wednesday evening and 'boxfit' classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Don't miss the infamous 'music night' on the first Friday of the month which is accompanied by a Mexican buffet which is excellent quality and value-for-money.

Despite these excellent services the greatest asset is the friendly staff who ensure that a stay or visit is a happy and safe one.
