    Lovely camping spot. Bathroom facilities lacking, i.e not enough bathrooms, freezing cold showers

    Beautiful setting with clean and comfy rooms. The restaurant has good food and a nice view of the lake. Only problem was just staying one night.

    Great place to stay, getting there can be an issues if the road is wet, but once you are there, absolutely glorious. Beatiful setting and jumping into the lake is great. Facilities are some of the best around. Hot showers, clean and amazing views. Recommended.

    where did my time go?

    I would recommend this place to self-drives and it seems (as the name would suggest) that it is a big part of the overland truck scene. For independent travellers the Crater Lake place right next door is far better and offers a kitchen for use to keep the costs down.

    My biggest complaint would be the amount of time it takes to get anything from the restaurant. There is Africa time but there is also waiting 45 minutes for some hot water. I wouldnt mind so much but for some of the time I was the only guest and outnumbered 20-1 by staff. If I got my meals in less than an hour I would have added an extra star but as this seems rather chronic they need to do something about it. 16,000Ush for camping is also scandalous.

    Gorillas (Farting) in the Mist...

    I'm so excited to talk about gorillas but I guess I should start at the beginning!

    So Sunday night after I last wrote Jess had a really rough night. Nick ended up flying out and arrived late Monday night. Jess was discharged Tuesday (having given up on the insurance company and just paying the bill herself!) and Nick very kindly put me up …

    Free day!

    A travel blog entry by ablo on Sep 03, 2013

    First free day on trip. Slept until 0930 and spent morning handwashing and relaxing. Damp day and pretty chilly so no hope of drying!! Lunch with group then hired a dugout canoe - basically a tree trunk - for a paddle on the lake, which is apparently 6,000 ft deep. Very difficult to canoe in straight line but we got the hang of it eventually. …

    Driving day

    Breakfast and departed 0800. Drove in truck until lunchtime with a brief stop in Mbarara to get fuel and change some money. Stopped on side of road in mountains for lunch - surreal as locals came to stare while we ate. Gave them food we had left - fruit etc - and the kids left it and ran away. Very mountainous and windy on drive - could see where …

    We left the Bwindi NP and drove for about 5 hours to reach Lake Bunyoni. The drive was very scenic. The lake is beautiful and the lodge has a lovely setting on the lake shore. The lake is 27 kms long with many finger bays and hillsides and islands both forested and some terraced with tea plantations.

    The lodge was a welcome relief after …

    The lovely red Ugandan dust always presented us with fun times in the truck. Particularly with temperatures creeping up and the need for African air conditioning, i.e. open windows. You never really noticed how much floated in until the end of the day when you went to retrieve your sleeping gear from the back of the truck only to find it had gone ' …
