What is new in Uganda

Despite the best efforts of COVID -19, Let's Go Travel continues to work hard to offer all of our tourists a truly unique and immersive safari experience. One of the ways we do this is to seek out new lodges and activities that we believe showcase the best of what Uganda has to offer as a tourist destination. Have a look at some of the recent additions to the Uganda Safari Scene.

Hotels and Lodges

Below are just some of the new accommodation establishments that have opened up in Uganda.

Gorilla Heights Lodge sits on a 12- acres and features 15 luxurious cottages, a heated swimming pool and a spa with steam, sauna and massage area. The lodge 1hr15mins from Kisoro Airstrip and 1hr30mins from Mgahinga National Park making it a good place to stay to trek in the Nkuringo and Rushaga sectors of Bwindi National Park as well as Mgahinga National Park.


Kigambira Safari Lodge is a luxury eco – lodge located in the Lake Mburo National Park in between Lake Kigambira and the Rubanga Forest. The lodge features 12 Bandas in total that are made up of 9 deluxe bandas, 2 family bandas and one honeymoon banda. Kigambire Safari Lodge offers amazing views of Lake Mburo and has its own swimming pool.


Chimpundu Lodge has 18 luxury cottages which are able to cater for doubles and families. The lodge's name is derived from a combination of the word Chimpanzee and Mpundu (the local Rukiga / Ruyankole word for chimpanzee). The lodge is also equipped with a swimming pool and spa facilities and is located close to Kibale Forest National Park HQ.



The Tour of Karamoja is an epic way to experience Eastern Uganda’s unrivalled wilderness and culture whilst positively impacting the image of northeast Uganda and promote tourism for sustainable development. Expect a physical and mental challenge, rich cultural encounters, dramatic scenery and Uganda’s finest wildlife.

This unique cycling event begins on the lower savannah plains in Pian Upe Wildlife Reserve and winds its way through Moroto, Kaabong and Mount Morongule, onto the East African Rift escarpment and finally slopes into the award-winning Kidepo Valley National Park
