Stayed in the Bunyonyi Overland resort in April 2017. The best thing about the resort is the location, tents set up right on the side of a beautiful lake. The food (while more expensive than non tourist locations) was fine. The staff were really pleasant and attentive. However a rather pleasant stay was totally ruined by the actions of a...

The restaurant and the bar are very big and located on more floors, right in front of the lake; in the evening there is also the possibility to sip a drink in front of the fire (considering the very cold nights of Kabale). My friend and I slept in a tent and, hadn't we taken some warm clothes with us,...

We stayed here for two nights camping right next to the lake. Nice grass areas for camping with roof covered areas with tables and chairs. Nice views and easy to arrange bot trips from the accommodation.

I like this place, as it is located in a good area of the lake, but rooms, food and drinks are extremely overpriced for Ugandan standard. 20$ for an extra mattress on the ground! Food is not bad. They have improved the breakfast, as now it’s a buffet. Also, activities you can do there are overpriced (canoe), but negotiable... They...

We've had the pleasure of booking one night at Bunyonyi and enjoyed our stay completely. However we wanted to check out more places on the island to be adventurous. However after just one night I rebooked again today, and I'm glad to be back. The waterfront tent views are knock out and I think 45 US dollars is worth every...

This place could be amazing, the location and the effort gone into creating it is extraordinary, it is truly one of the most beautiful resorts and campgrounds I've visited in Africa, however they have opted to charge above average prices for everything here which is disappointing considering the long wait times of the substandard food and overpriced drinks and activities....

We stayed here for two total nights while in the area. We were able to get a beautiful lake-side safari tent, with beautiful birds landing right in front of us for our viewing pleasure. The food was great, and they provided us an early 5 AM breakfast and packed lunch on the day of our gorilla trekking. The staff were...

I stayed in one of the fixed tents on the water and the view from my small deck was the reason for my 5 stars. Having said that the service is very good and the tent was very comfortable. The external shower was also good. Prices in the bar were a bit expensive I thought but all in all a...
