Since it was my first time to be here, my local friends were the ones showing me where to go. My friends were infront of me...

The best thing about Cassia Lodge is the views of the lake and the quiet surroundings. Seriously great setting. It's also easy enough to get into town - reception can help but we just took Bodhas (sit on the back of a blokes bike) - cost about 10,000 shillings. The rooms were clean and comfortable.

Welcomed with a smile. Courtesy is the yardstick in they measure themselves. Enjoyed laughs with the staff and shared some beautiful sunrises. This gem overlooking Lake Victoria is breathtakingly beautiful. It's amazing how it takes smiles and courtesy to make a customer happy.

Worth visiting for the view but also great choice of food. Not typical Ugandan food, reminded more of a restaurant in the UK. Service a little slow, but normal for Uganda. Staff friendly and accommodating.
