Very friendly staff , clean facilities, hippos at ur tents door at night. what else can you ask for? if you are looking for a posh place, this isn't it. Oversize tents, rustic experience .Food was amazing and dinner lit by stars was simply beautiful. In North america we always rush and forget to enjoy the simple things. This was...

We ended up booking here last minute for a night after our friends were worried about being trampled by elephants at the Mweya peninsula campsite, and I'm so glad we stayed here! Staff were very welcoming and offered us a choice of rooms, and explained how the showers and hot water, etc. worked. We stayed in the self-contained safari tents,...

Enjoyed a two night stay, from this convenient departure point for the North East of the park, and two hours from Ishasha's tree climbing lions. Self contained tent and bandas not worth price premium. We were given different rate over phone than final bill, though finalized with manager. Suggest getting details of price and what's included in writing.

the staff at Bush lodge are amazing, they always keep time and welcome every body at their lodge. I liked staying here because it is a very convenient place to stay if you want to explore the park and also if you travel at night it is easier to access this place.

The Queen Elizabeth National Park. The Bush Lodge was an oasis in the dessert. We were welcomed in five star fashion, escorted to our tent structure with a welcome song by the hippos only a couple of yards from our front door. The food was amazing, served around a camp fire. The staff was attentive and even baked a birthday...

We drove up to the Queen Elizabeth Bush Camp from Ishasha, a 2 hour easy drive. The camp overlooks the Kazinga Channel with a lovely outdoor area for guests to eat their meals in together at the allotted time each day. It's really in the bush - hippo, leopards, and other animals are known to roam the premises so the...

We stayed in one of the smaller tents at the end, which are spotlessly clean and have solar powered sockets for charging cameras etc. Note: there is no wifi at the lodge at all. We didn't miss wifi though - amazing views of the lake, plus each night we could hear the hippos eating the grass around the tent! The...

We booked this lodge after reading some reviews. Although it is listed as a "budget" choice for Queen Elizabeth Park, it is really as nice as some upscale tent lodges in which I have stayed. There is an eco-toilet and you have to request hot water for your shower, but the room and beds are first rate, as is the...

As a twentysomething year old with a tight budget, it can be difficult to find moderate prices within Queen Elizabeth National Park. My friend and I stayed in a non self-contained tent for two nights which had an incredible view of the Kazinga channel. The atmosphere was extremely peaceful and every night, we fell asleep to the sounds of hippos...
