“A perfect getaway to unwind.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2012

I stayed at the Ruboni community camp after attending the Rwenzori mountains visitor information centre launch and the Mahoma trail launch at the Rwenzori mountains national park for 2 nights.The facility has well furnished rooms, self contained Bandas, and a restaurant all lost in the thick rain forest Eco-system. The camp has well trained and presentable staff drawn from the local communities.Enjoying the spectacular view of the snow capped mountains open up in the morning from the comfort of your veranda as you par-take in the delicious and well prepared local cuisine is a scenery to behold. Meals are well prepared and served in time, the facility is solar powered and the security of the area assured the National Park Rangers' post being located in the vicinity.

Basic but clean accommodation about 20km off the Kasese to Fort Portal Road. Across a lane from the Rewenzori Mountain Service lodge. Great location on the edge of a village in the foothills of the Rwenzoris, just outside of the National Park itself. A perfect base from which to explore the National Park, or to just relax and escape from the modern world.
Well fed and taken care of by Enoch and the other staff members. Jacob took us for a forest walk in the morning and the village walk in the afternoon. Very interesting, allowing us to get a good feel for life in this community, and to appreciate the efforts being made to promote community tourism.
We spent 2 nights in the camp, sleeping in our own bungalow, and would have been very happy to have had more time there. Very quiet, though in the lodge and we met no other travellers while we were there. A shame when it is such a beautiful place.
The same can be said of Uganda itself. A beautiful country with friendly helpful people that should get more tourism. Thank you to Felex and Stephen who ensured we had a wonderful holiday. Phyll and Joe.

Placed just at the border of the National Park, but outside, so you don´t have to pay the fees.

We slept in the bungalow, and spent two nights there. Staff is helpfull and wishing to show you the surrounding areas. It is very basic lodge, but everything was clean, and the food was good. It was a peacefull area and we met some interesting tourist at the terrace while playing some board games and enjoying the views. So it makes the perfect place to relax and cool down for a couple of days....or to base it as a camp if you want to explore the area deeper.

They offer several activities to keep you "busy" during the day: forest walks, comunity tours and the park entrance.
