I thought the Lake Bunyonyi Overland Resort was beautiful and wished I could have stayed longer than one night. I stayed with two friends that I had met whilst in Uganda. Me and the other girl, Lucy, in one tent, the boy Tom in his own. Very reasonably priced, especially when anything like this in the 'Western World' would cost upwards of £100 pn.
We loved the treetop tents overlooking the lake and found them to be very comfortable. As we were staying only one night we didn't make use of the shower facilities, but from what we saw it was okay.
During our stay in mid-July we found it to be quiet and peaceful, despite the owner stating that many rooms had already been booked and we may not be able to stay. In fact, our neighbouring tents had no one staying in them as it was so quiet in the days and nights.
The food at the restaurant was very tasty, although the afternoon we departed all three of us ordered the chicken noodles and all three of us was very ill for days. Yes, it can happen and we were all pretty optimistic so that didn't spoil our memories of our stay at the resort.
I highly recommend this place to all. It's a chance to breathe in Uganda's beauty, yet have the chance to meet other Western travelers at the same time. A real gem.
