Fodor's Expert Review Turaco Treetops Lodge

Nkingo, Western Region, Uganda

Turaco Treetops combines nature, good environmental practices, and excellent value for money for the whole family from its jungle site at the edge of Kibale National Park. On a clear day, the Rwenzori Mountains are visible from the restaurant’s upper deck. Luxury ensuite cottages at secluded spots in the forest are a perfect hideaway for couples; standard en suites have the (optional) feature of sharing balconies, ideal for groups who want a bigger private space to enjoy nature together. The natural stone swimming pool is big enough for pre-breakfast laps and has a shallow end for kids (and sun loungers for mums!) A kids’ playroom and outdoor playground with mini zipline mean fun is guaranteed for the little ones. Guided nature walks and Giant bike hire add to the adventure.


  • Unusually good value for money
  • Spacious cottages are set well apart
  • Good environmental credentials throughout


  • Books up quickly during peak seasons
  • Slow Wi-Fi that's only available in the main building
  • Easy to get lost on the drive here
