The view from the lodge and from the banda is amazing, really incredible. The staff was helpful and enough friendly, the organized hike to see the 3 waterfalls was really nice, the banda clean and comfortable, considering the lack of electricity, and the shower was warm. So, i would give this place a 5. However, the food was really disappointing,... More

I want to give this place 5 stars so badly, but I just can't quite. Firstly, the setting, perched on the edge of the ridge next to the main falls, is spectacular. The activities we did were really fun. We went on a coffee tour, where we walked to a nearby village and learned how to make coffee in the... More

Stayed here for one day, the service was acceptable remembering that you are in Uganda. Yes you will have to wait 30 minutes for a cup of tea but if the charcoal fire isn't alight it has to be lit this is not un common. The meals were good and as for the views spectacular with many walks from the... More

The lodge is in an amazing location, beautiful views! The only thing that let it down was the service, we waited 30 minutes for a cup of tea, when we where shown to our rooms there was no offer to carry our heavy bags (something I would expect for the price!) and items of our food where served with clingfilm...

We stayed in one of the bandas for two nights and it was a wonderful experience.You can see and hear the falls and the view is marvelous.It is a bit steep but they have made good and solid stairs. The 4 and 3 course dinners are good but for us a little bit too much. Cedrick is a wonderful guide... More

Lacam lodge is one of our trusted overnight installations located in the heart the attractions of Sipi falls.. It's well managed by a dynamic team of young flexible members of the village. The price is less than midrange yet the service is great.. Minimum 3 course meal is served with a rotation of different food if you are to spend... More

We stayed recently for two nights with the family. The view from the cabins and even from the bed is nothing if not spectacular. The cabins themselves are simple, but very charming and clean. The staff was exceptionally nice and helpful. The meals are overall fine. Especially dinner with a four course meal requires a healthy appetite. Some courses were... More

I recently was able to visit Lacam (which means Cliff in the local language) with some friends. We drove up from Jinja and it took about 3 hours. The roads were not too bad. Finding Lacam was bit tricky but we saw the sign and turned in. The group I was with really enjoyed our stay there. It is not... More

This lodge is a real gem at Sipi falls. The individual cabins, built of bamboo are very pretty and perched with outstanding views over the valley, in a beautifully lamdscaped setting. Do not expect luxury. The rooms are basic but nicely furnished, each with their own verandah and full of character and the beds are very comfortable. There are no... More

“All cottages and bandas are next to the falls . Beautiful view!”

“It is a small lodge with I think 4 or 5 bandas and then the dormitories. I don't think you can go wrong with any of the rooms. But would ask for the banda close to the edge of the cliff near the falls. But they are all nice.”

“There are much cheaper rooms with separate, shared bathroom facilities.”

“Very steep steps from the rooms up to the restaurant/reception etc. Ask for one closest to reception etc if mobility problems/concern.”
