  • Description

    Description

    A family owned property provides bed and breakfast as well as camping experiences. There are over 10 double beds in 9 rooms plus a hostel that can accommodate about 20 persons. The family spends a substantial amount of the income for tuition of vulnerable children and church work. We are located on a crater lake 30minutes from the new tourism city of Fort Portal, western Uganda. The region has about 52 crater lakes, amazing terrain and vegetation, cool weather and sandwiched between 3 national parks.

    Employees that stay with proprietors include: One watchman for night duty, two housekeepers, three builders, one compound maintenance and three for crop gardens.
