    I don’t recommend this place. They have a very loud generator that they put in the middle of the night or early in the morning because they don’t store enough solar energy during the day. Completely ruins the peaceful lake vibe, even for the guests staying next door. Look for other options (and far from it if you don’t want a constant engine noise in the background of your holidays).

    I had a wonderful time at Kansiime Backpackers. I loved the plants all over the property, the colourful murals, the friendly service from Charity and Rachel. While there, I took a hike with Mathias the tour guide. He was very helpful and while we were hiking, I saw the lake at different heights, every view more spectacular than the last! Also did a boat ride around the islands...great views! It was a memorable experience! I would do it again and again and again!!

    Not the correct location as is actually over the bay from The Birdsnest Hotel. Beautiful spot where you aren't isolated and can still see people in their boats etc. village above is very interesting to walk through - use the guide to support the local people. Only negative is food took quite a long time even through only two of us were staying there. There are dorm rooms FYI.

    With the backdrop of the deepest lake in Uganda, and second deepest in East Africa, kansiime Backpackers is a place you should visit.
