Uganda offers a broad range of accommodation options. There are very remote lodges such as Apoka in the north-east, providing an experience both luxurious and genuine. Other lodges and camps are specifically located to give the best access to gorilla treks, some of which provide as close as it’s possible to get to a zero-footprint stay. Kampala now boasts a choice of hotels, from the generic Sheraton to a more distinctive luxury boutique offering just outside the city. And throughout there are safari lodges and villa-style accommodation to suit every taste.
In terms of destinations within Uganda, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is real jungle, dense and covering a relatively small area but one of the world’s most important gorilla sanctuaries. Gorilla treks are guided with real expertise and are an unmissable experience. Rwenzori Mountains National Park is very different, with snow-capped peaks looming above the clouds and a healthy population of forest elephant and primates as well as some opportunities for fairly challenging treks. Lake Victoria is coming into its own as a destination in itself, of course, and nearby Kampala and Entebbe provide fascinating urban experiences full of flavours and aesthetics both indigenous and colonial.
