About us

Based in Uganda my husband and I used to own a tour company offering private and group safaris throughout East Africa, only in 2008 we decided to take a gamble and do something different.  We sold the vehicles and began to develop 22 acres of wild land on the River Nile overlooking Murchison Falls National Park.  After 3 years of mad digging, the laying of extensive foundations, living in a tent, driving in supplies and materials by overland truck and having a baby (!) we finally opened in December 2011.  

We knew from experience there was a gap in the tourism market for mid range accommodation around Murchison so we have set out to provide just that - comfortable and affordable accommodation in a location that appeals to families, groups, couples and independent travellers.  We have a strong team of thirty five local staff who are passionate about the area and their role in hospitality which makes the overall guest experience even more memorable.

Due to the unpredictability of the continent every day in Africa is a mini adventure (the good/the frustrating/the amazing).  Needless to say we're looking for a couple with a brilliant sense of humour, are undaunted by the great outdoors, are well travelled, practical and sensible minded, wonderful hosts and keen to become part of our expanding business.

We look forward to hearing from you.
