Stayed there 2 nights in mid-December. Our cottage was well maintained, good size, beautiful view of the lake. Since we were the only guests (wife and I), we had the place to ourselves. All the staff (manager, waiter, chefs, etc) were excellent and only had us to attend to. They were so pleasant, friendly and respectful. Food presentation was very...

Room was very comfortable with a lake-viewing deck that was comfortable to sit on each evening. The bathroom was huge with both shower and bath, allow we never took a bath. Food was really only okay. It got better each day we were there, but was that because we were getting used to it? Breakfast was best. The best part...

We are wildlife enthusiasts so Uganda is a favourite destination. This lodge is very conveniently situated. The accommodation comprises mall cottages a few meters from the main building where food is served and there's a bar and quick wifi. The whole is within a secure compound but in daytime you can also walk outside it for birdwatching. The food was...

The bungalow was very nice with a large window to the lake. The room and bathroom was large. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Over all, it is a nice place to stay. Having the Hippo's visit at night and listening to them is a bonus.

My first visit to Africa and my Friend and I stayed here when we went on Safari. We had a great time. The lodge was beautifully arranged, the food was fantastic. Fred and staff were very attentive and accommodating. Everything was clean and comfortable in the cottages. The safari was great and I couldn't have asked for a better experience....
