The Chameleon Hill team made our visit easy, as they proposed and managed everything on our behalf. They checked what we needed in terms of excursions, and made all arrangements for us. They were friendly and helpful during our stay, in every respect. All in all it was a wonderful few days!

We stayed at Chameleon Hill for 2 nights on a full board basis. We were a family of 4 (a married couple and our 17 yr and 15 yr old children). Our stay began after completing a gorilla trek in the Rushaga sector. We arrived mid-afternoon and were greeted warmly and welcomed to the lodge. Check-in process was efficient and quick. We were shown to our 2 bungalows which were numbered 9 and 10, being the furthest from the reception and entertainment area. This was not a problem as the walk to and fro was through their landscaped gardens with good birding opportunities. The rooms are perfectly apportioned, comfortable large king size bed (a set of twin beds for the children in their own bungalow), a small seating area outside on your individual verandah, the bathrooms were perfect, flushing wc's, hot (every time) and cold running water in a high pressure shower. Toiletries are provided in the form of shower gels and shampoo dispensed from a dispenser. We could not fault the bungalows at all - the décor is funky and so different from your usual "safari look-alike" which gave the bungalows added appeal. The breakfast, lunch and dinners were scrumptious with a vegetarian option for all meals. Meal times were requested prior to each meal and were served punctually. This is quite important if you have set out your daily planner and we were never kept waiting once. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and well presented. We visited during Covid restrictions - hand washing and sanitizing was in effect and readily available. All staff were vaccinated which was a comfort. It was a great stay and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would highly recommend Chameleon Hill to other travelers. Clow family - Kampala

My wife Daniela and me did a 12-day self-drive safari in Uganda June - July 2021. After one night in Kampala after arrival we drove a long way to Bwindi National Park to go Gorilla Trekking the next day. Chameleon Hill Lodge was our first lodge for two nights during our trip and at the same time we have to say, it was also the best lodge during our whole travels. Why? -> Because we had a very cozy wooden chalet with amazing views, warm shower, privacy, electricity and well decorated. It was beautiful to arrive and rest there. The views of Lake Mutanda were just incredible. But after all it was really the staff which made us feel so comfortable. So kind, helpful and friendly. The food was fresh, healthy and delicious. They even cleaned our hiking shoes after the gorilla trekking. Amazing! If you go to Bwindi for Gorilla Trekking definitely stay at Chameleon Hill Lodge, its only 40min by car from there to the starting point of the trekking and its so much worth it!

This lodge is one of the best one we stayed, has a privileged view to the lake Mutanda in the middle of the mountains. Overall the experience was great, the rooms are nice, clean and with a lot of privacy. Each rooms has its own private garden and the distance between every house is enough to feel you are sleeping alone in the middle nature. The food an service was also really good, the staff was extremely friendly since the beginning and provided us everything what we needed. The only thing we can complain, but In our general experience is a big problem in all lodges, was the WiFi connection. Also I have to say the place looks way much more beautiful in reality than in the pictures, so we would definitely recommend to do a new photo session because its such an amazing beautiful place!

This place is the most amazing place ever. Beautiful view of the lake, fun bright funky decor, polite and helpful staff, I loved the pets roaming around too. The birdlife was incredible and a nice little walk down to the water was fun too. We went to Bwindi to see the gorillas but we didn't stay at Chameleon the night before because we wanted to be close to the gate, but I wish we had stayed there that extra night, even though it was a little bit further away. And it was so nice to have a pedicure in the bush !!!
