We found Kololo through Safarinow. What a great place for a relaxing weekend. We were well fed, had perfect accommodation and were received and entertained by friendly and knowledgeable staff. I would recommend a stay here to any local or foreign visitor.

A nice lodge to spend a couple of days at. We enjoyed it very much. Thanks to Lettie, the chef, for well prepared and tasting meals. The staff is international, friendly and competent. Early morning walks offer close encounters with all sorts of flora and fauna. The evenings offer breathtaking, starry skies.

All the staff treated us like royalty and we took advantage of many of the activities that they have like the game drive, walk and cycle. I really enjoyed the special touch of a coffee break during the game drive and Dean was an excellent guide! The animals in Kololo are just precious- it was really special to walk to our room in the evening and see little impalas and warthogs scurrying away.... Read more
