Lovely place, staff was super friendly & helpful and the food was amazing. The curio shop is also very nice, had a large variety of goodies for the whole family. Will definitely be making it an annual trip.

I am still speechless at the beauty and the hospitality. From the moment we arrived we were treated like VIPs. The place is breathtakingly beautiful, it's so peaceful and relaxing. Staff are super friendly and so accommodating. Eager to go that extra mile. The food was mouth watering. The guide on the sunset cruise was well informed and knew the...

I recently visited Hakusembe for a few days with my girlfriend. I must say it has a quite serene setting and backdrop. I like that the entire lodge is quite small and contained this makes it private and perfect for a relaxing escape. The staff are exceptional and have the perfect balance between offering service and offering space. The Restaurant...

After struggling to get to the lodge due to the heavy rains, the lodge manager arranged to come collect me and arrange the necessary transport and storage of my vehicle for the duration of my stay. Most pleasant staff and inviting location. Definitely worth a second and third visit.

We stayed here for two nights. The accommodation is good and service in the restaurant is fine. The food was well presented and the staff helpful. The chef spoke to everyone to make sure all ok. What lets Hakusembe down is the lack of organisation trying to organise trips. We had a voucher to hand in on arrival and it...

We spent time in the camp and the only thing I can suggest is paved walk ways from the sites to the lodge , the road to the lodge prefers a 4x4 vehicle especially in the rainy season , what really makes this lodge is the staff and service , I will suggest that you try it

We spent 3 wonderful days at Hakusemba. The lodge, garden, rooms and the restaurant are great with friendly staff. The kitchen made a fantastic effort to cater for us as vegetarians. Thanks for a lovely stay.

We couldn't possibly imagine the tranquil, beautiful accommodations that awaited us at the end of the bumpy dirt road. We laughed all the way from that main road until we arrived at the entrance to this amazing lodge. We were met with delicious cool beverages, and given the keys to our chalets while the ever helpful staff retrieved our luggage...
