We stayed on points and so I cannot claim value for all, but what we got our 12.5k points was amazing. One of the few places I have stayed where the staff learned our names, asked how our day was, asked how specific activities we mentioned we were doing went, and truly made us feel welcomed. The location is probably as good as any in Kampala as the city is so spread out and there is no real ‘central location’.
