Many times when I travel, friends say, "wow, that is the trip of a lifetime" and I shrug, not sure what that means. Now I know. Uganda was the trip of a lifetime, and Buhoma was a large part of that. the location is exquisite and the bungalows take advantage of that. I had to climb 68 stairs to get to mine, but it was worth it for the view.
The staff was warm and took such good care of us. Every day I could feel how much they wanted me to be comfortable and happy. The food was sensational. I live in Chicago and we know about good food. My free massage one day as it was raining in the impenetrable forest, with a little coal fire keeping me warm is a memory that will stick. Every detail, like the hot water bottle, to figuring out that we wanted pancakes (crepes) for breakfast was taken care of, and to this day, I have no idea how they got all the mud off my boots. They looked new and I know they were in mud to the ankle. I was sad to leave and still remember Titus and "Trainee" fondly.
