“Great stay, great situation!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

Me and my girlfriend stayed three days in this cottage.The stay was wonderful. A quiet place with a view over the park queen elizabeth. We saw elephants, blue berbets buffaloes. The rooms are spacious with all the details. Tasty food and wonderfull gardens. Near all the atractions, we moved from here to all the higlights in Queen Elizabeth NP.

Room Tip: Only are there three cottages, and all are quiet.

Kyambura Safari Cottages were a fantastic place to stay for our budget. We booked using the number on their website (through Mamaland safaris) and they also handled booking activities for our stay in QENP (Chimp tracking in Kyambura, boat trip on the Kazinga channel, and a game drive).

The view from the cottages is fantastic: overlooking the plains of QENP, from just outside our rooms we saw elephants in the bushes below us. The staff at the cottages were very helpful, they gave us juice when we first arrived, the meals were good, and they were on hand for a cup of tea whenever we wanted. They also prepared packed lunches for our drive to Bwindi on the day we were leaving.

But the best thing about our stay was that when we arrived we were greeted by our own personal guide, Michael. He had planned out our stay there and booked our activities. We were expecting to drive ourselves around the national park for each activity, but Michael drove us to each one, with each drive like a mini game drive (he even took us to see a crater lake and took us on a game drive circuit after our boat ride, completely free). This meant our trip was completely stress free, we just had to get ready at the right time and Michael handled everything else. He was organized, and very friendly and knowledgeable - I would definitely recommend him personally as a guide.

Overall, our stay at the cottages was very comfortable, we had a great time in Queen Elizabeth, and the quality of service from the staff and from Michael was fantastic and amazing value.
