Very nice resort for overlanders. Campsite for private campers not so nice as you have to camp in the parking area between overlanders and it is noisy especially when they start their trucks very early in the morning to warm up. Facilities are good, with restaurant and free Wi-Fi.

When we arrived we were shown videos of the different activities you could do while staying there and then Rach and I raced to find the ...
We woke up early to start our journey
to Jinja. We were not looking forward to it as we knew it was going
to take a while with many changes on different modes of transport.
First leg, getting a boat back to Entebbe. What a bizarre journey!
Unfortunately the lake wasn't as smooth as it could have been in the
small Catamaran and we spent a couple of hours rocking from side to
side. We made sure we ...
... be doing because it was so rough (we did it of course). At the end of the day we got drinks, and swish kabobs and baked potatoes and laughed at the pictures and video of the day. We spent a night camping in Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary, home of the only wild rhinos in Uganda. I skipped the optional rhino trek after being discouraged by a rhino trek in Zimbabwe but was beyond excited when a rhino strolled by the bar while people were on the trek! (Don't worry we camped in a gated ...
