Ndame is in a great resort in Paje. The rooms are more on the basic side but the property has plenty of hammocks, beach chairs, and a bar deck for relaxing. The food at the restaurant is very good and the staff were very friendly. We had help from the front desk arranging some rides to activities nearby with no...

I am only adding the review now as I thought it had been added before, but unfortunately it hadn't. The hotel is clean and has a variety...

I was in ndame for a week before my family arrived from the US. I'd been teaching in Uganda for the past 5 months and was much in need of a relaxing time with great food and lots of beauty and swim time. Ndame offered it all! Cottages with few exceptions are simple, beautiful and most offer a full or...

So let me start out by saying that Aiysha was very accommodating and friendly. Both she and Victor made sure that I had everything that I needed for my stay at Ndame, from the transportation to setting up my tours. I also had a great driver for my all day tour. Honorable mention goes out to Makamay :0) I cannot...

I loved my 4 nights at Ndame. My little bungalow (6) was basic but spotlessly clean and with a huge and comfy bed. The beach is a few steps away and is stunning. The room was quiet - could only hear the ocean - and breakfast and dinner was delicious and freshly prepared. If you want hot water, constant wi-fi,...
