We spent our first night of 12 in Uganda at the Cassia Lodge,it was a welcome oasis following the long journey from the U.K.The room was clean and spacious with a lovely balcony overlooking the pool and Lake Victoria.The service was a little slow,it took about 20 minutes to get a drink round the pool but it is Africa and it was a lovely place to sit a so a few minutes here or there weren't important.We had dinner on the elevated terrace outside the dining room which was spectacular,the food was unremarkable and not particularly cheap but the menu was extensive so maybe we just made a poor choice.We found all over Uganda that the meat was a bit tough for western tastes.We had to leave early the next morning and although it was supposed to be ready from 7am there was no sign of it at that time,however it only took a little while to prepare and we had very tasty freshly cooked eggs.All in all Cassia Lodge was a lovely place to start our holiday in Uganda.
