After two nights at different places and then a 3-day Rwenzori trek, we were eager to find a place to call "home" for a couple of nights. Pumba fit the bill perfectly, and we even added an extra night to our stay because of how great it was. We stayed in one of the cottages overlooking the park and were...

These cottages are located on the edge of Kichwamba village on the escarpment overlooking the Kyambura Game Reserve. You can spot elephants grazing in the reserve below. The staff are very helpful. I left an article of clothing behind and they very kindly arranged for it to be sent on to my next destination in Queen Elizabeth National Park. I...

We arrived here five of us with my friends from Sweden after our trip from Rwanda, We had a very very warm friendly welcome by the staff, cold fresh juice, icy cold face towels for our faces to relax us. The dinner was very very tasty with home baked chapati and a lesson to make them. We had a custom...

My partner and I spent two nights here as part of our visit to Queen Elizabeth National Park. It was comfortable and clean and we enjoyed the dining area/lounge. The cottages were spacious (plenty of room to spread out and re-pack all our stuff) with good bug protection, and had ensuite bathrooms with warm showers. We thought the staff were...

The cottages are very cozy and the view from the verandas is phantastic. The locataion is beautiful. We enjoyed really good food and the service was attentive. They organized a driver for us. The price for a comfortable double room full board is 120 Dollars - a very good value for money. The only thing to critisize is, that we...

We stayed here for two nights in December 2016. The view is amazing. The lodge was under construction but it is still quiet and lovely. We had excellent meals here and enjoyed a village walk organised by our safari driver and the lodge staff. I would recommend staying here. Only down side was that the wifi blocks apps like skype....

I travelled on my own, as a woman. Mamlandsafaris provided me with this beautiful arrangement, at Pumba Safari Cottages. It was a wonderful experience. People were very friendly and gave me a safe feeling. Pumba Safari Cottages is a beautiful place with a stunning view over the wildpark and monkeys and elephants! It is very peaceful and distressing to be...
