We've had the pleasure of booking one night at Bunyonyi and enjoyed our stay completely. However we wanted to check out more places on the island to be adventurous. However after just one night I rebooked again today, and I'm glad to be back. The waterfront tent views are knock out and I think 45 US dollars is worth every...

This place could be amazing, the location and the effort gone into creating it is extraordinary, it is truly one of the most beautiful resorts and campgrounds I've visited in Africa, however they have opted to charge above average prices for everything here which is disappointing considering the long wait times of the substandard food and overpriced drinks and activities....

We stayed here for two total nights while in the area. We were able to get a beautiful lake-side safari tent, with beautiful birds landing right in front of us for our viewing pleasure. The food was great, and they provided us an early 5 AM breakfast and packed lunch on the day of our gorilla trekking. The staff were...

I stayed in one of the fixed tents on the water and the view from my small deck was the reason for my 5 stars. Having said that the service is very good and the tent was very comfortable. The external shower was also good. Prices in the bar were a bit expensive I thought but all in all a...

I stayed in a nice dorm and I was lucky enough to have it to myself. Showers and bathroom were great, guest areas very comfortable, staff always helpful, WiFi worked fine. Lunch and dinner ordered from an extensive menu (with plenty of veggie options) were excellent, some of the best food I've had in my 6 weeks in Uganda. Buffet...

A great place to stay after the gorilla trek. The rooms are comfortable. The food service is limited but quite adequate. A very relaxing couple of days before heading out on a mission trip. I recommend this resort.

I stayed in the cave cottage. It was very fun and beautiful. The food is also delicious and I went canoeing. Nearby there is an island known as the "eco resort" that has zebras. You can go with a guide. I'd recommend checking it out if you have time.
