There are three places we have arranged for you to choose from for your stay. We have negotiated good prices for our volunteers. These hotels and guest houses are safe and clean. They are near to all the local attractions, shops, restaurants and night life in Jinja town, but far enough away not to be troubled by noise. If you wish to find your own accommodation, that’s also fine. You will need to tell us where you will be staying so that our driver can collect you and take you back each day.
You are responsible for booking and paying for your own accommodation. Here are the contact details for each of the places we recommend and photos to give you an idea of what they are like. On all hotels and guest houses, the accommodation fee will vary.
