  • Description

    Description

    We have a family-built eco lodge and tree house in Ishasha Uganda where the infamous tree-climbing lions are found! We really need help with, implementing viable systems, management as well as help with training staff and developing new community projects etc. We are just outside the national park and get visits from elephants etc regularly! The site is on a river and is beautiful!

    We have 6 en-suite cottages and 6 lazy camping rooms in the lodge, as well as a 250 square meter, 3 bed-roomed, en-suite tree house which sleeps 8!

    We planted 40 acres of eucalyptus trees last year under a grant scheme, but unfortunately the forest became overgrown and has not succeeded. So we are looking to replant the area again and need help managing and overseeing this project. We will be planting lots of indigenous trees and trying to recover the old trees that survived.
