On this occasion we made the complete article after the trip, so we went directly to our usual “GUIDED VISIT” of the accommodation With all the details and impressions.
The decision of accommodation in Kampala was one of the critical points of this adventure, because we left behind our first companions and here we met with Juve and Ruth, our friends of Secuoias, which would arrive a night before and use it to "relax for the post-flight" with some basic comforts. Thus we arrive at a really beautiful place on the highest hill in the capital, Buziga Hills, a site calledCassia Lodge
The reservation, like the rest of those made in the part of Uganda, Rwanda and R.D Congo, we made with Matoke Toursthat gets better local prices than those offered on the internet, although you can also make the reservation from your own website. In this case the prices are around between € 60-80 / person and night
The main complaint that brought us to this place was, without a doubt, its comforts and facilities to use it as a base center until we met, an environment without mosquitoes, wireless internet connection to be connected, with beautiful views of Lake Victoria and Kampala ...
... excellent international food in your bar or terrace with those same views of the lake and a large pool. Really, can you ask for more?
The rooms, 20 in total, are large and clean and cover all our needs and some more like satellite television, telephone, minibar, etc ... The spacious bath It also has a hairdryer and gels for the guest, as well as being perfectly clean during our stay.
Completing the information, comment that you have 24-hour room service, in-room safe, conference room and even a van service available for airport transfers or visits of the capital, which can be a good idea because it has a few interesting points that should not be missed.
For the rest, Kampala is still a population settled on several hills that are occupied by the cathedral, hospital, Catholic church, Protestant church, the main mosque and the university. It is possible that this orography leaves a very different image to other African capitals although conceptually it maintains the same chaotic aspect. We would enjoy that one DAY 17 of travel.
The we would recommend? With some "repair", YES. And that "repair" is due to the circumstances in which we face our trip, in which we needed a place of these characteristics to use as a base, but economically there are more affordable places. Of course, the Cassia Lodge meets perfectly for a moderately high price.
