We visited this lodge for two nights on our honeymoon almost 2 years ago and i have been meaning to write a review for ages.
What a place, we were greeted on arrival and had a 3 course lunch overlooking the infinity pool and watering hole. The food was delicious and the view spectacular.
We had a room overlooking the watering hole and my favourite part of our stay was waking up in the morning and sitting on our decking having tea and coffee overlooking the view. The sounds from all the wildlife early in the morning is just wonderful.
We did both a horse back ride and a boat trip during our stay and I would recommend both. The horses are well looked after and I liked how the guys who took us out very much cared for the Well being of the horses with my husband being a novice rider. We got to see lots of wildlife including my favourite animal 'the warthog' a strange choice but I love their 'sticky up' tails when they run! The boat trip was also fantastic and we saw loads of hippos and different birds.
The owners were so friendly and welcoming and I would recommend this as a must stay if you are visiting Uganda. One bit of advice would be if you are using this place as a stop over on your way to the gorillas don't just book one night. Due to driving times you will probably arrive there late and then have to leave early the next morning to ensure you arrive at your destination in daylight. Once you get there you will be bitterly disappointed that you have to leave so soon. Thankfully from reading reviews and from looking at the website we stayed 2 nights, and I was still disappointed to be leaving.
