Uganda has a wide range of accommodation, to suit all pockets and tastes, from five star hotels and first class luxury lodges and camps, to rustic bush camps, guesthouses, campsites and community homesteads.

In Uganda you will always get a frendly warm welcome no matter which kind of accommodation you go for.  The people are generally welcoming

There are various  high quality safari accommodation built in traditional African style, undoubtedly the best base for exploration of Uganda’s most popular national parks: Murchison Falls National Park, Queen Elizabeth National Park and Kibale Forest National Park. We work with our accommodation partners when customizing your trip to ensure that you get what fits your expectations and budget

Hotels in Kampala and Uganda do not have to be expensive. You can get a reasonably good room in Uganda hotels for as little as $35 a night.

Whatever your budget and taste, you will be able to find something that suits you, from 5-star city hotels in the heart of Kampala to 5-star hotel complexes on the shores of Lake Victoria, or on Muyenga Hill overlooking the city. A small number of ’boutique hotels’ offer a more intimate experience.

Central Kampala has a number of large hotels perfect for business trips and conferences

Alternatively ‘downtown’ Kampala has a number of cheaper options for backpackers and those on a budget.

There are hotels of varying standards in all the major towns. All the National Parks and major tourist sites have either hotels, camping sites or both. Although there are few camp sites as such, it’s usually possible to camp in the grounds of the majority of lodges (although it’s best to check before you start your trip). Camping charges are generally between $5 – $10 a night. You can bring your own tent, buy or hire one in Kampala.
