A PLACE OF EXCELLENCE
"This is the finest example of rural development that I have ever seen or heard of in Uganda" - Rt Hon. Edward Ssekandi (Vice President of Uganda)
Stunning scenery; incredible wildlife; warm and welcoming people – when it comes to tourism, Uganda has so much to offer its visitors. It's compact – so attractions are within easy reach. And the team at the Kabubbu Resort Centre can help you get the most from your trip
Imagine tracking gorillas through lush jungle forest at Bwindi or searching for lions and elephants across broad grasslands at the Queen Elizabeth National Park. Picture yourself at the source of the Nile at Jinja perhaps white-water rafting the raging torrents. Or you can lose yourself in the vibrant bustle of Kampala or just relax and watch the sun set across Lake Victoria. The Kabubbu Resort Centre runs a range of tours and can book others for you. We can also tailor a bespoke trip to suit your time schedule. The resort was established in 2006 by two NGOs. One is the UK-based Quicken Trust whose backers have included UNICEF, Graze and British Airways. The other is a local NGO – the Kabubbu Development Project. Kabubbu - on the edge of the jungle - is the perfect place to begin your visit. The village lies just 20 miles north of Kampala and 90 minutes from the international airport at Entebbe. We can organise transport to and from the airport.
Guests at the Resort stay in thatched cottages or “bandas” – set in a tranquil, neat garden. Each banda has an en suite WC and shower. Close by is a bar and restaurant staffed by a professionally trained chef. Food is usually western with a hint of international flavour but superbly cooked local food is also available.
There’s also entertainment from a local dance group and even an opportunity to try your hand at local crafts. And, as you unwind and prepare for your adventure, there’ll be time to find out the remarkable story of how Kabubbu is being transformed by the Quicken Trust – working with local people. You can even volunteer to spend time helping Quicken on some of its projects. The Kabubbu Resort Centre also provides resources for local businesses, NGOs and church groups for meetings of up to 40 in its Conference Centre. Facilities include a data projector and internet capability.
