After a crazy 15 hour overland trip in our Nomad Tours truck we finally arrived at Silver Springs at 11pm. The only place we could erect our tents was at the end of a parking lot, right next to the construction site that was still active and rather noisy.
We decided to upgrade.
What a pleasure.
From the coffee our friend got us, as tired, hot and dirty we made the necessary arrangements at reception, to the friendly porter who took our bags, chatting along the way to our room.
The room itself was an absolute delight. Much bigger than we expected, containing 2 beds, chairs, a desk, a large cupboard, a fridge, TV, and lovely, lovely aircon. We had plenty of space to spread out, sort out our bags and make use of the laundry service.
A safe in the room provided peace of mind as we stashed our passports and money into it.
The bathroom was spacious, the shower huge, and the hot water provided just what we needed to wash away the grime, aches and pains after a long days travelling. Our hair rejoiced at the hair drier, we looked like normal people again.
The pool area was lovely, we swam a few times, and enjoyed sitting around on the lawns at the pool, making new friends, ordering food from the restaurant and snack bar and being delighted by the friendly service from the staff.
We walked down to the local supermarket and shops, just 5 minutes away from the Hotel, and caught a taxi to the local markets.
After that another refreshing swim at the hotel pool was just what we needed.
Supper that evening was a variety of BBQ ed meats and salads. The BBQ is cooked right there beside the pool and the tantalising smells are too good to resist.
We did have a little trouble connecting to the Internet, the connection came and went, but that is a common occurrence in East Africa.
The Silver Springs Hotel was a relaxing oasis in the midst of bustling Kampala. Security at the main gate as well as the entrance to the hotel is very reassuring.
I loved my 2 night stay there and would go back again.
