Everything we needed was in the room. We love the staff.

We loved the rooms. They were beautiful, clean spacious and comfortable.


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 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.

I really want to see your project get all the help it can and be as successful as it deserves to be. Well done and indeed a privilege to have met you all.

Seeds of Hope is fantastic. We visited all the other places on the island and the animal island and seeds of hope is definitely the best. The grounds and restaurant are beautiful, the rooms and facilities excellent and service fantastic. The staff are super helpful and fun too.

You have the best place I have ever visited so far in Uganda (+/- 6 months) You have a really great project and good luck

This is a very, very nice place to relax for a while. The island and surroundings are really beautiful. The room, or actualy a small house, is very cosy with the most beautiful view you could wish for.

The staff is doing a great job and is really helpful with whatever you need. The food and drinks are very cheap considering you are on a island and everything has to be transported from the mainland.

Although you are on an island, the internet is great and thanks to solar panel, there is always light.

The shower is the best I had since I am in Uganda! I would definitely recommend this place and they do a very good job for the community of Lake Bunyonyi.

Tripadvisor Reviews

This is a wonderful place to stay on this beautiful lake high up in South Western Uganda. It is new and is run in order to fund community development projects in the local area – hence the name “Seeds of Hope”. You arrive by boat which is magical in itself and accommodation is in several secluded and individual tree and stilted houses each with its own bathroom. The lodge is run on eco principles though a generator does supplement the hot water system in the evenings so warm showers are the order of the day. The restaurant has a wonderful terrace and the food is delicious. The whole lodge is secluded within trees and the views from the houses are amazing. This is wonderful place to rest and relax if you are en route to see gorillas or visit the national parks of Western Uganda. I took advantage of the dugout canoe experience to see the abundant bird life on the lake, I had a magnificent view of the sunset from my stilted house and was lucky enough to witness the training of local people in new agricultural practices whilst I was there. Their singing and dancing was magnificent. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful and I really hope that this new and exciting venture continues to thrive.

Room Tip

The tree houses are probably the most unique experience, I stayed in the room right by the lake with the stunning views.

A wonderful place to stay to rest, read and relax. Or for the more energetic, you can swim, paddle a canoe and go for walks and bird watch. The staff couldn’t have been more helpful, wanting to provide for one’s every needs.

The restaurant serves good food and has an amazing position overlooking the lake where you can listen to the sound of birds and happy children singing as they return home by canoe across the water.

Room Tip:

The tree rooms are a delight

A creative and inspiring project, serving the local community by providing training and work experience in a Christian environment.

The guest accommodation helps to fund the project, and is brilliant – quirky tree-houses with balconies and en-suite facilities, an excellent restaurant with superb views and serving delicious meals; swimming, bird-watching and canoe trips available.

All this set in an idyllic and tranquil location. I would recommend it to anyone!

Room Tip

With a 10-15 minutes drive on Lake Bunyonyi, on a motor boat, you’ll be at this breathtaking site.

The island is has a well stocked bar. The menu comprises snacks and dishes, main meals, soups, salads, side dishes and desserts.

The staff are welcoming and the weather is fine (what to say, it’s an island). A standby generator is there on site, as well as accommodation.

You’ll love it. Check it out
