Uganda is well adapted to the needs of the modern ecotourist with good choices in accommodation at nearly all destinations ensuring that most budgets can be met. Perhaps more important than accommodation however – given it is the main means of travel and nature experience while in the country – is your choice of tour company. We use a Ugandan-owned company with excellent guides, reliable vehicles and good insurance cover to ferry our guests around the country and ensure an exceptional interpretive experience.
In Bwindi we use one of several upmarket lodges in the Buhoma area – Gorilla Forest Camp, Buhoma Lodge, Bwindi Lodge, Silverback Lodge – while in Kibale we favour Ndali Lodge in the crater field outside the national park, or Primate Lodge situated at Kanyanchu in the core of the park. There a number of options besides these lodges as well.
In Queen Elizabeth National Park, dependent on itinerary and length of stay, we use the Ishasha Wilderness Camp, Mweya Safari Lodge or Jacana Safari Lodge, while in Semliki-Toro Game Reserve we recommend the luxurious tented accommodation at the Semliki Safari Lodge.
Given time spent in Entebbe or Kampala is limited we prefer to use destinations close to Entebbe International Airport, The Boma or the Lake Victoria Hotel.
