The permanent tents seem ok, but in this place we were camping with our own tent - the superfriendly staff let us use one of the private bathrooms in the permanent tents, that was much nicer than the common toilet block. We also had a broken window in our car, and the staff did everything they could to help us...

OK so this is not a luxury tent, however it has electricity, plenty of hot water ( after the obligatory 7 minute wait), views, hot water bottles to keep you warm during the night and it is safe. Be aware that there are many steep stairs to climb ( I was in the tent at the top of the property)...

When I saw the signs for this "luxury tent camp" when we were still about an hour away, I got excited... but as soon as we pulled into the gated entrance, I knew the Uganda definition of luxury was not quite the same as mine. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a snob - I have lived five years in...

Slept better here than anywhere in Uganda due to comfortable beds, warmed by hot water bottles - a nice touch typical of the staff who went out of their way to be helpful. The camp is quite basic and paths to the tents are quite steep and dark, but it's all held together by very attentive staff. Avoid the craft...

I stayed at this fancy lodge with a friend for 2 nights,and we really had a great time.this lodge is located a few meters from the park and opposite is the stunning view of the forest.It is in a remote area with no hydro electric power but with a solar power, so we did not have problems with the lights...

Ok not the best place for business but that's not their fault. No wifi, power is literally a broken 4 way at reception which can run out as its solar powered. Camp has lights but very dim due to solar power and sometimes runs out by morning as you will experience by flickering lights. Beds surprisingly comfy, it gets cold...

Cool beers on arrival after an 11 hour drive from Kampala were very welcome. The staff is extraordinarily helpful, the rooms (military style tents) are basic but do the trick: comfortable beds, with hot water bottles (it gets cold in the jungle). Being in the jungle makes you exposed to bugs which is the only downside with the outdoors bathroom......

I recently stayed whilst visiting the gorillas and was really impressed with the layout and the staff. Moses, the head waiter was polite, professional and all the other guys were really courteous. I would recommend this if you want something unique with a jungle setting, but a hint of luxury. the beds are comfy and there's hot water. Thanks again...
