Our farmstay is located along the Mbarara Kasese road on your way to Queen Elizabeth National Park. We run a small farm of bananas, coffee, fruit trees and other food crops. We also rear animals such as pigs, goats, ducks and chicken. You can have a peek into our daily activities and the local hand tools used. Some of the home activities include feeding of animals, gardening, and coffee harvesting, processing, grinding and packaging for distribution to the market.



We can accommodate 2-4 people in our home. You will dine with our family and if you are interested you can get engrossed in home daily chores mentioned above. Besides, Douglas can take you around the village to get an extra experience of the community and astonishing scenery of the multiple crater lakes, the fascinating Great Western Rift Valley escarpment and panoramic view of Kyambura Gorge in Queen Elizabeth National Park surrounding areas.

We have 2 furnished bedrooms. One with a medium sized single bed and another with twin beds. Furthermore they both have mosquito nets, shower bath in shared bathroom, outdoor squad toilet, fan and electricity.

Meet Douglas

Member since: August 2016

I am Douglas Santana. I earn my income from agriculture. My family does organic agriculture and grows coffee, bananas and rears domestic animals. When you visit, I will show you how I grow, harvest and process coffee. Our home is located about 100m from “Hakitoma” (meaning, by the fig tree - in the local language- on Mbarara-Kasese road close to Queen Elizabeth Park. At our home, we have secure parking for private vehicles. I invite you to visit and stay with us to experience the local farm.
