Our return visit to Rainforest Lodge did not disappoint. Joackim and his staff were excellent . Chef Godfrey provided scrumptious meals. Beautiful bird walks in Mabira. Butterflies were in profusion. And the tree hyraxes made the evenings special. Accommodation was extremely comfortable. Thank you Uganda.

It does not have activities meant for children as such but it's a safe place for them, there are no stairs but rather quite hilly, the walk ways are too steep which would be much of a problem to the very elderly but am sure... More
