This lodge has a great view of Lake Victoria from a hill top. The rooms are well done but are a little older, The beds are little hard with great pillows. TV and fans are provided. The rooms have a balcony or patio. The restaurant has very good food, European rather than local but very good with great outdoor seating.... More

Our group of six friends spent two nights here. The food and service were excellent---highly recommend outdoor terrace dining. The fish was superb! We enjoyed the pool after a full day tour of Kampala. There were some minor issues in the rooms (fans not working,lack of hot water at times). But we wouldn't hesitate staying here again. Incredible views of... More

After a busy days rafting in Jinga last week, we arrived at Cassia completely exhausted. I'm happy to say check-in was hassle-free and we were even treated to a refreshing glass of passion fruit juice while waiting to be shown to our room. The room itself was spacious, clean and maintained excellently on a daily basis. In total we spent... More

Cassia Lodge Kampala, a place I fell in love with. Beautifull view over Victoria Lake, big rooms, staff very friendly, honest food, good service at the pool, and all information needed to do trips all over Uganda. The owner and his wife are so inviting, that you feel at home in an instant. We will certainly be going back, thanks... More

You won't find a better view in the whole of Kampala. Cassia Lodge is a welcoming oasis in this city which can be overwhelming at times - it is not central, but well worth the trip. Ideal if you want to stay in Kampala, but not really in Kampala. Staff is very friendly, also the hotel is well known so... More
