The camp offers three different accommodation types which include the Banda, the Non-self-contained Tents as well as the Self-contained Tents.
The Non-self-contained Tents provide a budget-friendly accommodation option for guests. These African style tents are equipped with comfortable beds, a bedside table and a power outlet to charge electrical equipment. The tents are set under a thatched roof which creates a private terrace and offers shade. Visitors staying in these tents share a communal ablution block which offers flushing toilets and showers. Bedding, linen as well as towels are provided.
Guests who prefer some privacy and a real Bush experience may stay in one of the two self-contained tents which are located a short distance away from the lodge. These tents are suitable for families travelling with children as an extra tent can be placed on the next platform. This type of accommodation is recommended for the adventurous traveller, and those guests who have their transportation as walking to and from the main camp is not recommended during the night.
The 12 self-contained Bandas are spaciously spread out between the indigenous bush of the lodge. These rooms have been constructed on a raised wooden platform and consist of canvas and local materials. Giant mosquito netted windows provide a lovely view and ensure guests a close nature experience. The Bandas feature private terraces which overlook the seasonal Kamera river. An eco toilet as well as an outside shower, where two shower heads allow couples to take their starlit shower together, are featured.
Based on the camp's small impact safari concept, a large dining tent is used as the restaurant. This dining tent has been set up to overlook the Kazinga Channel from where the Rwenzori mountain range can be admired as a backdrop. While enjoying the camp's excellent cuisine, this natural setting makes for a memorable dining experience.
Weather permitting, guests have the opportunity to dine under the bright, African starlit sky. The paraffin fires, as well as the campfire, provide a fantastic atmosphere for a delicious four-course dinner. Set menus are offered, and special requests and dietary requirements can be met if these are communicated to the lodge in advance. Depending on the day's planned activities, early wake-up calls with fresh coffee and tea, packed breakfasts and lunches can be arranged.
Chimpanzee trekking in the Kyambura Gorge is an event not to be missed when visiting this region of East Africa.

Taking place early in the morning or in the evening, this activity takes between one and three hours. The research activities which are currently available are Lion Tracking, Mongoose Tracking, the Hippo Census, as well as the Bird Counts.
