Like any other Resorts on lake Bunyonyi, its easy to access our hostel to. 

From Kampala to Kabale

If you are travelling from Kampala, first get to the bus park.

There are many bus companies traveling to Kabale town “South Western Uganda”. 

It takes 7-10hrs and we recommend Jaguar and Gateway buses. It’s better to start from 8:00am or 9:00am from Kampala. Price ranges from 30,000UGX -70,000UGX depending on the season.
