    We love this place!

    This was probably the best weekend I have ever had. Lake Bunyonyi and Seeds of Hope is my favourite place.

    The workers that helped us – Joel, Mary and Hillary were the nicest and most welcoming people.

    I will definitely come back and I will bring my friends. This place exceeded my expectations.

    We loved this place so much. The staff were incredible.

    This is probably the most wonderful trip I have had in Uganda. Thank you so much.

    Bird watching fantastic!

    Great place to come for some peace and quiet.

    Although it was an amazing getaway I look at it as being much more than that and admire, appreciate and love what you are doing there.

    It was just such a humbling and refreshing experience for me personally.

    Environmentally Aware

    We work hard to be as sensitive as possible to the beautiful environment around us. We use solar power for heating water (but we do have a generator to ensure standards are maintained on cloudy days). We use local products where possible and our restaurant serves vegetables and fruit that we grow on our plots.

    Seeds of Hope

    Itambira Island is home to the Seeds of Hope project, providing training and support for the local community to assist them in a number of areas including employment and agriculture.

    Local Employment

    Our restaurant and accommodation provide valuable opportunities for the local people and profits are reinvested into suitable projects.
