We had a real African dream with this company! We planned the whole trip over the internet and we were never disappointed during the 3 week tour across the country. In our comfortable 4x4 jeep with removable roof, we survived all types of Ugandan roads, even slept during our 'African massage'. Driver Bosco was like familiy to us, always open for suggestions or new adventures. If you have time, try to visit Kidepo NP. in the north: the scenary is so wonderful and the nature very authentic.
The relaxing days at Byoona Amagara by the end of the trip were welcome, the geodome a dream! While the mornings were sometimes cold, the view (from bed and shower) was incredible... This budget accommodation is a top destination.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Byoona Amagara Island Retreat is a one-of-a-kind traveler's paradise located on an island peninsula at the heart of the lake. We cater to independent travelers and backpackers looking to get well off the beaten track. We have a gorgeous location overlooking a protected island cove, perfect for swimming, canoeing, hiking or just about anything else you can think of. We also have creative and comfortable lodgings, famously fresh and delicious food, sweeping views of the lake's islands and hills, and a variety of fun and interesting tours and activities... Not to mention some of the most affordable prices in all of East Africa! We also have Internet service available, as well as an amazing library and cinema with hundreds of great books and films. What Byoona Amagara does NOT have is noise, dust, overland trucks, mosquitoes (very few anyway!), or prices that insult your intelligence (or empty your wallet). Come stay in one of our beautiful geodomes and experience Lake Bunyonyi at its very best! Byoona Amagara is a staff-owned, not-for-profit establishment dedicating 100% of proceeds to support education and sustainable community development at Lake Bunyonyi. ... more less
