Winston Churchill called Uganda the Pearl of Africa and you can find out why. Uganda is rich in Nature, ranging from the snow-capped R ewonzori Mountains, to the Bwindi Jungle with the rare Mountain Gorillas, green hills along the River Nile and the breath-taking wild-life in the National Parks.
But Uganda´s culture is as diverse as its landscape, experience local food like grasshoppers and cooked banana, enjoy the vast variety in music and dance or visit one of the many Galleries showing modern and traditional art.
If you need a bit of adventure in your life, whitewater rafting, zip lining or bungee-jumping are on offer. For a more relaxed approach we provide options for boat-rides on the Nile or Lake Victora, golfing or shopping for anything from African Crafts to designer clothing.
There is something to discover for any taste and budget! We also offer all activities with a German speaking guide if required. Please contact us for more information.
Besides relaxing and enjoying the sunshine there is also a lot to discover around our Hotel. We are offering cooking courses, especially in Ugandan cuisine, as well as in baking.
