Such a nice place to visit, I had a great time.
Good sign posting on the road. Lobby had space and soft chairs after a long day. Room was clean, tidy with everything working in it (such a change from most places I'd been). Bed soft, shower warm with an excellent view over the river.Pool was a great palce to unwind and relax. Views down over the river were good with assorted birds and animals coming down for a drink or graze.
Food was well presented and tasted wonderful. (Much better than many places I'd been to. Good location for drives to Budongo, ferry and Murchison Falls.
Owner was very helpful with all sorts of things.
Sad I only spent 4 days there. It was the best place I stayed in after 13 months in Uganda
We were amazed to experience this level of confort while truly feeling in contact with nature. A buffalo family lives in the garden and you can see wild animals when relaxing near the pool or enjoying a wonderfully cooked dinner. The safari guide working with this lodge was by far the most interesting we met during our trip and everything felt perfect, including the incredible gift shop Debby provides with handcraft from Kenyan an Ugandan markets.
The personal touch felt in every detail and the quality of service makes this secluded paradise built by Debby and her husband feel like a home that you'll never want to leave! We would love to come back again. Thank you again. Sophie and Nicolas
Very nice place. My son enjoyed to cool himself in the little pool. Beautiful park/garden where wild animals visit also. The lodge was simple but clean and comfortable. Food very good and the service excellent. Only obviously the guides that work from morning to evening are treated differently from other guests. We had to argue to let our friend and guide dine with us and he was served simpler food. This really has a spirit of pure old fashioned colonialism that we cannot accept. I will never stay here again, but no shadow cast on the staff who were really excellent! If the policy changes maybe I will consider it again. For my own travel company I will not send my customers here if this policy will not be changed immediately.
We were in a group of 15 staying in small 2 and 3 bed huts in the grounds. We used the pool, restaurant and the camp fire. Travelled to the Safari park and the falls which were quite close. You have to get used to limited times for electricity and wifi, but facilities a;; worked and we were well looked after.
We spent a very relaxing two nights in Sambiya Lodge. Firstly it is located in the beautiful and breathtaking Murchison Falls National Park. Being immersed in nature and among the local wildlife gave us a needed break from work and a change of environment. At Sambiya Lodge Debbie and the staff gave us a warm welcome and took care of us and answered all of our questions and arranged a lovely stay for us. The pool was a great place to relax after having seen all the sights in the day.
Debbie is a wealth of knowledge of the area and also proved to be a great contact for us with our professional work. Thanks everyone at Sambiya Lodge. Hope to visit again!
