Jemima and team at Banana Village strive to make your stay the best experience you can have. They pay great attention to detail, cleanliness, and hospitality. The staff are warm and welcoming. The food is excellent- try the fish-n-chips. A nice complimentary breakfast awaits you at the time you desire. The guesthouse is in a quiet, beautiful spot in town with monkeys and birds greeting you everyday. From a private retreat to a large group with meeting and accommodation needs, Banana Village is the place to go! I highly recommend it!

The staff always remembers our names and our fav rooms, sets the table to accommodate our wheelchair, and everyone is relaxed and friendly to our kids. Rustic, clean, peaceful, ample green space to read/play/relax, simple clean pool. Watch the monkeys play at dawn and dusk from your mini veranda or dining hall. Take a warm shower. Wheelchair is able to move around the grounds well (with assist up a few bumpy slopes). We try to go every year!

My Rotary International service group has used Banana Village three times, 2017-2019, with trainers and trainees numbering 40 people. The venue is highly conducive to group bonding, lectures, and hands-on activities. A free-standing training hall seats 30+ with table seating. Flip charts, LCD projector, and PA system are available. Multiple options for small-group breakout work sessions.
Meals were tasty and wholesome. Tea/coffee breaks were timely.
Opportunities for walks around the nature-campus or in the friendly neighboring villages. Use of the very nice swimming pool that has an adjacent bar serving adult beverages, cold drinks, and snacks.
Topping off the features are the friendly, responsive staff, and the pricing value which easily beats its competition in Uganda. And…the Vervet monkeys do not expect gratuities for their entertainment.

Date of stay: June 2019

We've now been twice because we love the place and the caring people who run it and provide meals etc. (We're older Australians who live and work in NW Uganda). Highlights include: swimming pool, birds and monkeys. Of the latter there's a family of about 15 who come and go and we enjoy their antics. Our Xmas19-New year visit in Room 18 was special because they happened to love the hedge and trees beside us and were often frolicking just 2-3 metres away as we sat on the verandah. We jogged for exercise around the small field surrounded by tall trees within the boundary. The food was great and the waiters smiling and helpful. There's a particularly appealing vine with strings of white flowers hanging down from a jackfuit tree near the dining hall. We felt so relaxed, seated watching it and the occasional monkey through the windows, while dining. We find it helpful carrying an extension cord with light bulb for reading in bed (Rhys & Rhondda)

Room tip: Room 18 next to monkey's favourite haunts
