HOTEL NO. 5
Nestled in the leafy suburbs of Entebbe, is the new and stylish boutique hotel, Hotel No.5. From the moment you arrive, you are warmly welcomed and cared for. With all the luxurious rooms opening onto the garden and swimming pool, this is a great option for guests looking for an intimate stay in a tranquil setting.
Make yourself at home – unwind beside the swimming pool, pamper yourself with a spa treatment, or work up a sweat in the hotel gym. For one of the most flavoursome dining experiences in Entebbe, carefully planned menus are paired to an international wine list, and served with pride.
PAPAYA LAKE LODGE
The exclusive and peaceful Papaya Lake Lodge offers sweeping views of Lyantonde and Kifuruka Lakes within Uganda’s Great Crater Lakes region. With high-beam ceilings, warm wooden decor and unique local crafts, this lodge offers cottages for guests to unwind and enjoy the remarkable beauty of the extinct volcano lakes.
Ideally located close to the Kibale National Park and Queen Elizabeth National Park, venture out from the lodge to enjoy drives and sights of Uganda’s diverse ecosystems and flora and fauna species. The highlights are sightings of chimpanzee, red colobus monkeys and bushbuck species. In the afternoons, you can dip into the lodge’s pool and relish the panoramic views of rolling hills and lakes.
Overlooking the waters of Lyantonde Lake and hidden by trees, nine exclusive cottages offer tranquil and luxurious spaces with warm wooden floors and bespoke decor. Eight cottages have a king and a single bed, en-suite bathrooms and an inviting verandah. One cottage boasts two storeys, three bedrooms, a bathroom, a living room and spacious terrace.
MWEYA SAFARI LODGE
Mweya Safari Lodge offers visitors an unforgettable experience. Located on a peninsula within the heart of the Queen Elizabeth National Park, Mweya Safari Lodge is surrounded by the magical Rwenzori Mountains aptly described as the ‘Mountains of the Moon’.
To the east, lie the guardians of the birthplace of mankind, the Great Rift Valley hills, separated from the Mountains of the Moon by the meandering Kazinga Channel. Here the water flows endlessly into two giant lakes – Lake George and Lake Edward.”We believe beyond doubt that unique encounters always begin off the beaten track…”
Nestled right on the edge of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in Uganda is Buhoma Lodge. This secluded and serene lodge has been designed sustainably and built using locally sourced materials. A great deal of thought has been given to the design of the lodge to ensure guests enjoy uninterrupted views, with each of the ten chalets giving guests a front row view over the forest canopy and Bwindi National Park.
The chalets offer solar powered lighting, en-suite bathrooms and a private viewing deck. The elevated bar and lounge area allow guests to rest up after a rewarding day of gorilla trekking, where they can enjoy a few drinks (from our fully stocked bar) and share their experiences with everyone around a warm and cosy fireplace.
Meals are freshly made combining local and international cuisine. Our warm and friendly staff will have you wanting to stay a little longer, especially with the complimentary post gorilla trek pampering massage!
