        What a great and unique place to stay! You are in the heart of Queen Elizabeth National Park with wildlife all around you. The rooms/lodges are very nice and spacious, containing nice beds with mosquito nets, and a bathroom with hot water. Electric is available during the night…

          Amazing experience, spacious rooms, infinity pool, Elephant as visitor 🙂 Everything was perfect! We spent 3 nights at the Buffalo Safari Lodge for our honey moon. From the beginning the staff was very nice and everyone was introducing themselves and remembering our names and preferences. Rooms are very spacious, nicely decorated. Bathroom with shower and tub. At night they arrange mosquito nets and spray. Food is excellent, always a veggie joice. Many breakfast options such as poached eggs. The infinity pool is a highlight, you can easily observe animals by the water pond that’s close by. Many birds fly around all day. It’s so green, all the lodges are on their own and just in the middle of nature. At night security accompanies you to your lodge. The very best: As it was our honey moon one night candles and flowers let us the way to our dinner spot. They put our names on the table with flowers and even wrote us a very heartwarming card. The staff put so much effort into it: it was stunning! There is one elephant visiting the lodge quite often: Mr. John. We’ve seen him eating and just being around! He was taking the same path as we were. Amazing experience! Highly recommend the Buffalo Safari Lodge!

          Elephant encounter on property- very thrilling! The staff were truly warm and lovely, we enjoyed the large deck with view and a glass of wine. Our room was on point with hot water (that was a bit confusing to get working). The staff came and got us when there was an elephant property that was our best up close and personal encounter!!! I’d recommend this as a mid-range lodge experience.
          Bella esperienza a pochi minuti dal parco Piccola struttura ben integrata nel verde e vicino all’ingresso del parco QENP dove si svolgono i safari. Stanze molto grandi, isolate dalle altre e molto suggestive con tetto in paglia e grande veranda. Area ristorante grande con veranda all’aperto che guarda nel bush e la sera su un focolare. Bella anche la piscina a sbalzo con vista su una pizza dove si dovrebbero abbeverare gli animali. Servizio molto cortese ed efficiente.
          Wonderful, thank you We visited Buffalo Safari Lodge as part of a (too) short tour of Uganda. The room and surroundings were lovely, with a direct view of a waterhole. Elephants visited multiple times. Best of all, the team were amazing, very friendly and attentive. The trip was to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary, and they pulled out the stops to make our evening meal special.

          Wet Season Safari I stayed at Buffalo Safari with my sister and two of her friends. The facility is amazing with great rooms and a selection of local and western cuisine. The pool has views of a local water hole including mongoose and water bucks traipsing through the facilities, accompanied by the sounds of birds and frogs. Our server Godard took care of all our dining needs and the staff provided a secure and comfortable facility.

          Soggiorno di due notti, stupendo! Location spettacolare all’interno della savana. Abbiamo trovato un elefante davanti alla camera, è stato emozionante. C’è sempre la sicurezza a scortarvi dal ristorante alla camera alla mattina e alla sera comunque! Camera molto spaziosa e compresa di ogni comfort, acqua calda subito disponibile! Bellissima piscina all’esterno, sia per adulti che bambini con vista mozzafiato! Cucina ottima, menu diverso ogni giorno ma sempre ottimo. Staff sempre disponibile e cordiale!

          Amazing place in Queen Elizabeth This place is incredible! The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Animals come right up and through the hotel grounds! The food is great and the staff is so attentive and kind (shoutout to Goddard and Chastity!). I would come back here in a heartbeat. It’s very close to the park entrance making it easy to get to safaris. (Our game drives were awesome — leopards, lions, elephants, and so much more). Note that wifi is only in reception but it was generally strong connection, especially compared to some other places we stayed. The power in our room went out briefly and water pressure was low briefly but it was no big deal. The pool was a nice place to relax and cool off after safari!
