Guests stay in individual stone cottages with sizeable private sitting rooms complete with a fireplace, overstuffed armchairs, and art commissioned from some of Uganda's best artists.
The main lodge feels like someplace else – soaring ceilings, massive exposed wooden beams, big picture windows with endless views of treetops, volcanoes, and mountains. It feels like a ski chalet in the alps or a stone palace in the Rocky Mountains, but the warm, welcoming, dedicated personal butlers, and genuine smiles on everyone's face, make it clear that it's Uganda.
