Turaco Treetops is a mid-range luxury lodge situated next to Kibale Forest National Park. With eight luxury cottages situated in private locations across the forest, this is a small lodge offering an intimate experience. Each cottage is spacious and comfortable, with sweeping views across the forests.
The property is spread out across the hill so be prepared for lots of steps between your cottage and the main areas. There is a lovely pool to cool off in the heat of the day, or set yourself up in the lounge where you can watch the birds in the treetops or curl up on a coach near the fire with a book on the colder evenings.
If you’re not content to just relax and enjoy the lodge there is many activities that can keep you busy! Head out chimp trekking on forest walks, birding treks or Bigodi swamp tours to really immerse yourself in nature. There is a great indoor and outdoor play area for kids as well.
Dining is offered in the main restaurant and usually a highlight for guests here! With some fantastic locally prepared and sourced dishes keeping you fed throughout the day! All ingredients are bought from the local farmers market where possible and dishes are fusion of local and international dishes.
This property is part of a small collection of boutique lodges set up by a lovely family who have called Uganda home for generations. They try to hire local and are fantastic at training up the staff for a great client experience. The food is freshly sourced from the local area and as little plastic used around the lodge as possible.
