Where to Stay

There are no \formal accommodation facilities within Kalinzu forest yet. Those interested in camping can do so but need to come with their own bedding, food supplies and tents. The main camping site is close to the forest offices (Nkombe forest station) but has basic facilities, solar powered showers and Pit latrines. Firewood and Water can be organized at the station or purchased at the nearby trading Centre along the Kasese to Mbarara highway.

The closest hotel to the forest reserve is the Homeland hotel near Ishaka. The best option for those interested in more comfortable travel is to book with one of the various lodges in Queen Elizabeth like Engiri game lodge, Jacana lodge, Katara lodge, Mweya hostels, Mweya safari lodge, Park View Safari Lodge and Queen Elizabeth Pvt lodge. These lodges offer budget, mid-range and Luxury facilities. Once you have secured a room in one of the above lodges, you can then go to Kalinzu forest for activities early in the morning and return for dinner and overnight.
