How We Rate Accommodation In Uganda?

  • Budget: These include simple guesthouses, campsites, tented safari camps, or dormitory rooms that are available throughout Uganda. The standards of service and amenities are not high and you may share facilities with other guests.
  • Mid-range: This is the perfect option for comfortable, self-contained (‘en suite’) Uganda safari lodges, camps and hotels set in stunning locations that don’t cost a fortune.
  • Semi-luxury: All Uganda safari lodges, camps, and hotels in this category are more comfortable than the mid-range. Although locations are similar, the details are further refined. These Uganda lodges often have a swimming pool too.
  • Luxury: These Uganda safari lodges and hotels are fully equipped and comfortable. They are typically more spacious than the mid-range. And often offers facilities like swimming pools, masseurs & sometimes even private butlers.
