Accommodation - Enfuzi Community Campsite

Go to content

Main menu:



Enfuzi Community Campsite is set on the forested rim of a volcanic crater lake in the lush Rwenzori foothills at Lake Nkuruba.
Being just a stone’s throw from the amazing crater lake, a local church and the orphanage, Enfuzi Community Campsite is a great opportunity to truly experience  the vibrant local culture  within one of Uganda’s most unique and exciting locations. We regularly host visitors tracking chimpanzees in the Kibale Forest National Park and those en route to Gorilla trekking in Bwindi/Rwanda. It is only a 2½ hour drive from one of the most spectacular river safaris in Africa at the Queen Elisabeth National Park. The owner of the campsite, Bishop John Bosco, will be happy to take you there for the small price of petrol and his admission ticket - of course there is always an orphan child willing to join you too ;)

These are traditional thatched roof cottages. There are five on site
Banda 1 = 4 beds + solar power room lighting
Banda 2 = 5 beds + solar power room lighting
Banda 3 = 5 beds + solar power room lighting
Banda 4 = 2 beds + lanterns
Banda 5 = 6 beds + solar power room lighting
All the beds have mosquito nets and the rooms are basic, but quite spacious. Or there is the Honeymoon Banda, which is situated away from the others and comprises just two beds and is lit by lanterns.

Food and Drink

Experience one of our excellent, homemade meals from our sizeable menu
and you are more than welcome to learn about and watch them being made. Both the food and drink (alcoholic and soft) are affordable and available on request. You cannot leave without sampling the goat curry and be sure to try their famous guacamole n chapatti; it really is to die for.

Taking in the stunning views of Queen Elisabeth National Park, the Crater Lake and tea plantations within touching distance of over three species of monkeys is a truly serene and unforgettable experience.

We have areas for you to pitch your own tent or, if you prefer a little more luxury, why not opt to stay in one of the purpose built thatched roofed bungalows (bandas). Every banda has solar powered lighting and sleeps between 2 and 5 people. Bedding, pillows and mosquito nets are all provided. The campsite is extremely safe and is under 24 hour surveillance.

There is an ablutions hut with typical pit toilet facilities (basic but functional).

There is a large dining/chill out area to sample the guacamole and chapatti or a cold beer, charge phones and plan the day ahead.

The shower is an amazing open-air bamboo enclosure available anytime of the day. However, at night it offers the most amazing experience of showering under the stars. Just let the staff know when you wish to shower and they will heat up the water for you. The shower itself is a bucket with a shower head attached to its base (dangling above your head by a rope), which allows you to control how much water you use - the principle is simple ... the experience priceless.
