How We Rate Accommodation
“Budget Accommodation” – Accommodation such as simple guesthouses or dormitory rooms are available throughout Uganda. Service and amenity standards won’t be high and you are likely to share facilities with other guests, but choosing this standard can make a big difference in the price of the tour. Alternatively, you can choose to camp. Some campsites have wonderful locations and Paradise Adventure Vacations can provide you with tents and mattresses.
Mid-range Accommodations” – Paradise Adventure Vacations originally focused mainly on the mid-range market and therefore has a special ability to choose the best accommodation of this standard. This is your best option for comfortable, self-contained (‘en suite’) accommodation set in stunning locations that don’t cost a fortune.
Semi-luxury Accommodations” – Accommodation falling in this category is more comfortable than the mid-range. The locations are similar, but the details are further refined. These lodges often have a swimming pool, as well.
Luxury Accommodations” – The luxurious accommodation is fully equipped, comfortable, and usually more spacious than the mid-range options. They often have facilities like swimming pools, masseurs and sometimes even private butlers.
