We decided to stay at Birdnest by paying extra on top of our gorilla trekking safari and we were glad we made that decision. We were welcomed by Pacino the resident dog after a long drive from Ruhija.
The staff was friendly and we were shown to our deluxe room with a lake view soon after.
The room was clean and spacious with a fake balcony where we were able to admire sunset.
Bathroom was modern and water pressure was adequate.
The guests are welcome to take the wooden canoe out on the lake, or play a round or two of billiard games. The terrace has an amazing view of the lake and a fire was started in the large fire pit after sunset to keep the chill at bay if one decides to dine on the terrace.
Dinner was included in our room price and it was the best dinner we had in Uganda. However, the service was a bit slow, but the staff was apologetic and informed us periodically that the meal was coming.
As it got a bit chilly at night, we closed all the windows/doors to keep the chill as well as the mosquitoes out. The room got stuffy and warm in the middle of the night, so we had to open up the windows and balcony door to get some air in.
Breakfast was also amazing! We ate like we hadn't eaten in ages! The menu was extensive and very generous portion!
All in all, it was an excellent experience and would love to go back again if given a chance!
