CVK Lakeside Lake side Resort

You are Here: › CVK Lake side Resort

We spent a night at the CVK Lakeside Lake Resort near Kibale Forest National Park.

We had booked a banda, but after a lovely walk around the rooms with the owner we decided to take one of the nicer self-contained double rooms.

The beautiful location of the resort is well worth a couple of nights, the food we got for dinner was simply perfect and a delight, but most remarkably I would love to highlight the hospitality and kindness of our hosts:

such a pleasure to discuss with them, we only had one night there in our plans but we felt home immediately.

The lake views are somewhat obstructed by the trees, though what you lose of the full panoramic view you gain by having vervet monkeys as your neighbours! (Other rooms have more of a view, where the sunsets are amazing!)

The owners want to keep the area untouched to encourage the flora and fauna to flourish, and this they do well.

Breakfast and other meals are served on a verandah with similar outlook to the rooms. In the cooler evenings a roaring fire is lit on an adjacent patio where you can sit and listen to the cacophony of frogs and toads.

The owners offer a very warm and friendly welcoming. Simple, yet tasty meals are served with advance ordering.

A few seconds stroll from the dining area and you are at the lakeside where you can safely swim, though watch out for the jetty as it was a little slippery when we ventured out.

Superb walks in the area to the surrounding hills and other crater lakes. And about a twenty minute drive from Kibale forest where one can go chimp trekking amongst other activities.

We would agree that this is correctly priced accommodation for what you get in comparison to other sites nearby; a very good budget option.

There are also detached bandas available, as well as the terraced rooms. Thoroughly recommended!
