This place is buried in the rain forest but with space created by its river aspect. A hippo was resdient in the rushing river, and complemented by elephants and buffalo in the grounds while we were there. The staff are very pleasant and attentive (including bush breakfast and sundowner on the bluff 20 min away – we watched hyenas and a pair of mongoose), and the food good (four course dinner with S African house wines). The individal accommodation huts overlook the river with private terraces, and have spacious bathrooms (but bucket shower on request if you want hot water). Our lodge (number 6) was only a short walk from the main lodge, but anyway at night all transfers are escorted. Two obvious game drives (N and S loops) begin no distance away, but the tree-climbing lions may be more remote than these. Security is taken seriously (DRC is very close), but there have been no problems in the last decade I understand – you may see members of the Uganda army close to the camp. Approach roads whether from the north part of Q Elizabeth park (3 h) or Kihili (1.5 h) have serviously dgraded sections.
