Uganda Hotel Guide

Uganda is becoming an increasingly popular tourism destination and there are not enough quality hotels to cater for the growing demand. When travelling during the peak season (July - Sept, Dec - Jan), you must reserve your hotels well in advance. 

When looking for a campsite or budget guesthouse, we highly recommend using the free app iOverlander. Basically, every campsite is plotted and reviewed. You don't need to book your campsite in advance. 

Based on our own experience, along with other roadtrippers' recommendations, here's an overview of some of our favourite lodges in Uganda in all price ranges. Please drop us a line if you have discovered a nice place that we haven't already included!


The lodges are categorised according to pricing based on a double room with bed & breakfast. 

Rate indication:
$ = Up to USD 100 for 2 persons, per night.
$$ = Between USD 100 and USD 175 for 2 persons, per night. 
$$$ = More than USD 175 for 2 persons per night, per night. Usually, these places are inclusive of all meals.
