New Court View Hotel has been owned by Sallie Wareing since she bought it in 2002. Ms Wareing had worked with VSO after retiring as a headteacher in 1997. The hotel is a budget hotel - nothing too expensive - but it has remarkably extensive range of dishes on the menu.
The hotel is often used by travellers to Murchison Falls, but its real quality is that it is a centre for many local NGO's and aid workers. Ms Wareing is a mine of information about local and national issues, and if she cannot fix your arrangements for travel (or anything else!) nobody can. There is very much a family atmosphere about the hotel.

... we checked into our adorable cottage at the New Court View Hotel (recommended by Ryan and Sarah, our friends in Burundi). A pleasant break from community living. We met our private driver, Moses, who insisted that he could call any guide in the park to talk about sightings and take us to all the animals in the park the next day. I didn't sleep well and woke up with a 'hokey tummy'. Translated: I skipped the complimentary breakfast. We ...
... which we plan to visit on the way to Kampala. We collect our guide from the rangers office, complete with AK47, and drive out to Buligi Plains, north of the Victoria Nile river. The Victoria Nile, flowing in a westerly direction between Lake Kyoga and Lake Albert, divides the park into two roughly equal parts. North of the river, the vegetation broadly consists of tall, green grassland interspersed with isolated stands of borassus palms, acacia ...
... a small group of about 7 after just a few minutes of walking. Our guide proudly introduced us to Obama who arrived at the sanctuary 4 ½ years ago. We also saw a large 14 year old female named Bella and 3 – 4 or her off spring. It was interesting to be so close to them although they are quite a boring lot just eating and only moving to get to another patch of grass. We stayed with them for about 30 minutes taking pictures ...
