Overland

Stopping for a meal, a night, or a few days? Great, we’ll take care of you!

Our location is the perfect break from long drives between Kampala and the West, and we have plenty of room for trucks to park and set up camp. Upgrading to our tents possible too. Contact us directly for special overland rates. As always, crews stay for free!

We have a large restaurant and can prepare meals with advance notice. Please contact us to organise. A separate basic kitchen facility is available in the camping area if you’re cooking for yourselves.

We offer lots of activities too, both inside and outside Lake Mburo National Park. Contact us to organise!

    - If you’re coming from Kampala side you should take a Kampala-Masaka road and the Masaka-Mbarara road.

After place called Chapa you should take a right turn (there is a Big blue milk factory building as a reference point) and follow the sighs. The whole way could take 1-1,5 hours.
