SHORT BREAKS or TOURISM BASE
Whether you are traveling to Uganda and need a comfortable base from which to explore other parts of the country or whether you live or work in Kampala or other major towns and want a short break in the country, the Kabubbu Resort Centre is the ideal place to be.
The Kabubbu Resort Centre is located just 20km north of Kampala in the village of Kabubbu. It is part of a rural regeneration project. The Rt Hon Edward Ssekandi (Vice-President of Uganda) said Kabubbu is: ‘The finest example of rural development I have ever seen or heard of in Uganda’ when he visited. Come and find out why – and enjoy comfortable accommodation in what some have called ‘the Garden of Eden’.
If you are visiting Uganda from overseas we can organise collection from Entebbe International Airport. You will enjoy full-board accommodation with excellent food served in our open-air restaurant. Accommodation is in thatched chalets (bandas) with louvered windows, warm showers and flush toilets.
If you have a busy, stress-filled life in Kampala then come for a relaxing weekend. And don’t forget the children because we have a large playground which will keep them occupied for hours while you relax with a cool drink!
As a tourist – or as an Ex-pat living in Uganda - you may want to find out about life in a rural environment. We have something we call a ‘Development Challenge’ you can take part in – ideally in groups of up to six - see Suggested Timetable below. You will come to fully understand how people live in a rural environment and the challenges they face – and you can help do something for them. This four-part exercise will cost an additional £100 (US$ 125* or Euro 120*). Is it worth doing? Three comments from hundreds:
- “Doing Development Challenge made me realise that problems can be solved and that families like these are not ‘doomed’ … we have made a big difference to this one family and so we realise that each can do our bit to help”
- “The Development Challenge showed me how such a small amount of financial help can have a major effect on somebody”
- “I really enjoyed feeling that I had made a measurable and immediate difference to the family”
The Kabubbu Resort Centre staff can help you create an escorted tour from the resort to other places of interest or safari parks. They have considerable experience doing this since 2006 and will do their best ensure you have a great time.
