“Heaven on a Budget”
Reviewed September 7, 2008

We have just returned from a trip to Uganda. One of our stops was at the Nkuringo Campsite (for those looking for further information, we've posted a review on our full trip here: http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowTopic-g319722-i10042-k1994933-l13856105-Trekking_from_Buhoma_to_Nkuringo_and_onto_Kisoro-Bwindi_Impenetrable_National_Park.html)

Overall the Campsite was just fantastic. It has everything you could want:

-A totally outgoing, helpful team, knowledgeable on all topics you'd anticipate (nature, conservation, culture, etc. etc.)

-Out-of-this-world views - the photos posted by the first reviewer are 100% what you should expect!

-Simple, no-nonsense rooms as you'd expect on a budget - but specklessly clean, and with hot water available

-Great food (if you're lucky with timing you may even get Swiss cheeses and meats imported by Robert, the owner!)

-A friendly local community (with whom you can knock around a football if you feel like it - don't expect to win though)

Overall a perfect place to stay on the top of Uganda, either for a night or several days to take in the rhythm of life there. Now that I'm back in "civilisation" I often think of coming back to the Campsite for a week or much, much longer...

PS: we already said this in our other review, but we suggest getting in touch with the owner, Robert, directly for anything in Uganda - even for suggestions on your full trip there. He's the best thing that happened to us on this trip!
