Their accommodations give a traditional feel of the African manyatas with a vintage formation that makes the stay exhilarating. Despite the delays they had in serving foods, i would recommend anyone intending for a lovely pool experience and accommodation to visit this place.

I attended a group training during 10 days. The meals were quite good (2 types of meat and 4 type of complements) with beverages. Breakfast with eggs, jam, butter, etc. Rooms are disposed in huts, 4 of them for each hut. They are basic, with bathroom inside separated by curtain. They provide soap and towel, with mosquito net and potable...

My husband and I stayed in the round houses, an upgraded option. We found it clean and inviting. The pool was murky the first day but the next day they cleaned it so all was good.' We found the food to be adequate. We did the 6: PM boat ride on the Lake and down the Nile a bit. Highly...

Ideal for the boat trip and en route to the border, but not a hotel I would recommend. Everyone had problems with their rooms, the staff (with 1 exception) were all laxidasical. The breakfast was due at 7am, it was 7.45 before they even got the frying pan out, not good when you are on a timetable. Avoid if you...

The food was not as described by the waiter. I was disappointed. The place was overcrowed with loud music and people yelling.We couldn't hear each other talk. No privacy. Tables and chairs were dirty. When we asked for it to be cleaned they only cleaned a small part of the table. It was still crawling with ants and the chairs...

Stayed here twice, both times the rooms have been unpleasant. Last time the room was so dirty, I was afraid to put my child on the bed. The compound is lovely, really beautiful, but service and cleanliness is very poor and incredibly slow. I wouldn't stay here again unless there is a huge change in how they maintain the rooms.

We were told to go here for lunch and enjoy the pool...the road to the hotel is awful...but thats pretty much par for the course in this part of Africa...so we stuck with it and eventually arrived. At first, it seemed like we would really enjoy the experience...we asked them if they could accomodate our time schedule as we had...

We stayed at the Kingfisher Safari Resort for 3 days in July 2016 at the end of a tour all around Uganda . The road to the hotel is terrible but it is near the main street so it is easy to go there without troubles . The location is a dream , one side the Nile , a little...

We've visited this resort numerous times over the past few years living in Uganda because we really appreciate how family-oriented it is. The family cottages are ideal for our family of four. Two rooms (with self-contained bathrooms) are adjoined to each other under one roof. The rooms are comfortable and private. There is the usual problem that can be found...
