Why we like this camp

  • There is a free Wi-Fi service in the lounge, allowing you to share your day of adventures with your loved ones back at home.
  • Overlooking the Ntungwe River, Ishasha Wilderness Camp is built using canvas, wood, and thatched roofs to seamlessly blend into the surrounding woodlands.
  • Early morning wake-up calls allow you to witness the beautiful rising sun in the early morning.
  • Excellent location. The camp is on the border between Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. It is near to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park and the Mweya sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park.

The Accommodation

10 private canvas tents are deliberately positioned to take advantage of their stunning surroundings.

Each tent offers a fantastic view of the local hippos and herds of elephants from its veranda. They are designed in the East African Meru style, and are comfortable and spacious.

Each has an en-suite bathroom with eco-friendly toilets and showers to minimise the camp’s environmental impact, as well as solar panels to provide power to the tents. This eco-friendly accommodation is perfect for environmentally conscious travellers.
