Beautiful, peaceful lodge in South Western Uganda. The bandas are clean, private and well designed. We enjoyed biking around the property and watching the zebras. The meals were excellent and the waiters were very friendly.

Rwakobo Rock is my favorite lodge in Uganda. I have been there many times and continue to go back. The views are breath-taking and the relaxed atmosphere is a welcome escape from Kampala.

Had 2 nights on new years eve there. I felt so good at this lodge, my family and I really enjoy it. Great staff, good food, fantastic view and location. Chris (the owner) and his family were there and they were all very friendly. For new years eve they had a local cultural dance group and pass around champagne.

We had a great stay at Rwakobo while visiting the Lake Mburo national park. The hotel is very close to the park entrance, and this helps. Nice common area - including even a small pool with a great view over the park. The rooms are nice with a decent bathroom. Good food (a bit scarce, the buffet was over before...
