Amazing place, very well managed place. Very professional and food is fantastic. Compared this lodge to others in Uganda, one of the best places we stayed at during our trip. The people are friendly and professional.

Good evening - elephants are a fairly regular sight. As you can see on our pictures, the lodge/cottages are on top of an escarpment, if you descent, there is about 100m of farmland before the park starts.
