Accommodation near/in Budongo Forest/Royal Mile (1 Viewer)


Well-known member

My partner and I are headed to Uganda for 15 days on Friday, and have organised our own trip with a hire vehicle along the usual western loop.

The one are that we are having issues with is around Budongo/Royal Mile. We are hoping to spend a few hours birding along the RM before we head up into Murchison Falls NP.

I would appreciate any advice on budget accommodation (less than $50) options for Budongo forest/Royal mile, currently looking at hotels in Masindi or Hoima, but then a minimum 30-45 minute drive to attempt to get there early enough for some early morning birding.

The only options I can find are the eco-resort (out of our budget) and the forestry college (haven't heard anything from them and heard they don't always take tourists). We have our own car and tent - any options much appreciated.

Thank you in advance for any assistance.
