We are fans of this place and have been visiting regularly since it opened and have recommended other travellers to this low key establishment rather than the Larger Lodge next door. We have received regular feedback, some good, some not so good. The latter concerned us a lot.
We, a party of four, were booked in late last year, 2012, and got the usual friendly welcome from Julius and his team. We noticed straight away that some undergrowth had been allowed to proliferate. We got our 'usual' bungalow' and in view of reports we set about testing all the systems. Lights, Water, securityof fittings etc., all was found in order. However our companions had issues over lighting and erratic water supply so we arranged a move for them. We got the water right but sadly not the lighting. We think that maybe the batteries had finished and the poor weather and secluded position in shade was affecting the Cells on the roof.
Food was up to Julius's usual high standard, (Trekkers claim to serve the best food in Uganda.)
We enjoyed our stay as always and will return but the issues were of concern..
I have taken up this point with the owner and following an exchange of mails I have been assured these matters will have his urgent personal attention. I am therefore not going to comment further on these or let them unduly affect my ratings. Let us see what develops.
