For an authentic taste of Ugandan life, why not stay in community-run accommodation?
Cosy grass-roofed bandas built with local, natural materials are atmospheric places to spend the night, surrounded by the exotic sounds of the Ugandan savannah or forest. Some are built in the arrangement of a traditional family homestead, others are set in beautiful tropical gardens, and many offer spectacular views of the surrounding landscapes – from the snow-capped peaks of the Rwenzoris, to the densely forested slopes of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.
Many communities offer camping for those with or without their own tents, making this also one of the most affordable accommodation options for those traveling on a budget.
Guests will enjoy home cooked food, prepared on open fires, interaction with the local community, and the knowledge that their stay will support local community projects such as schools, clinics or agriculture.
Do something different during your trip – and know that you are making a difference to people’s life.
