As a lodge, it is our duty, pride and mission to cater to each and every guest’s demands and needs. We make sure to listen and anticipate any issue or stress that could inconvenience our guests by preparing ahead of time, putting ourselves in the guest’s shoes and having a real feel of the experience.
As I feel my muscles starting to ache from the long riding hours in the car from Kampala all I can think about is which massage am I going to choose, as I get to my room, I see a spa menu with so many options that I cannot even choose! The all sounds so perfect and precisely what I need and therefore I decide to trust the masseuse and let her give me her best recommendation. As I am called for my massage, I am greeted by a lovely woman named Nancy and she goes on to explain that she will be the masseuse and that I should feel comfortable and not afraid to ask any questions. As we start making our way to the massage place, I feel we are getting closer to the Nile River, I feel the cool breeze lifting my hair and making it dance around. Nancy goes on to tell me that I will be having my massage on top of the world’s longest river!
The cold morning mist gives us goosebumps but lucky for us our driver was prepared and had small blankets for us to wrap around us. As we are driving we feel the sun  starting to pick up and shine down on us. The sky had some phenomenal colors, ranging from a hot pink, to a fiery orange and a deep red marking the rim of the sun.  Over in the distance we see a herd of buffalos, a mix of young calves, old bulls, healthy females and injured males.
Nathalie Van Pée, the lodge’s Director, told Tourism Update that each of the six bandas has a private terrace with bathtub, indoor and outdoor shower. There is also a honeymoon banda with outdoor plunge pool and a star-bed. A family banda has two bedrooms, each self-contained, with a mezzanine area.
