Excellent Experience with Excellent Staff!
Rushaga is in a very isolated part of Uganda, far from any major town of city. Keeping this in mind, the stay was absolutely fantastic. For the limited food supplies they should receive, the meals was well prepared and well presented. The staff is very friendly and always willing to assist. Elizabeth is absolutely fantastic and nothing is to great a ask for her. Only negative. Before dinner, entertainment is arranged in the form of either the Batwa Pygmis, so some school or orphanage that sings and dances. The negative is that these groups, after performing, asks for donations and they just stand there, looking at you, making you feel guilty. I did not have cash on hand on one of the occasions and felt embarrassed because they just kept staring. I appreciate the performance, but a heads-up would have been nice that the groups will ask for financial contribution/donations. Back to the positives. It was my wife's birthday and Rushaga (with Elizabeth at the helm) went out of their way to make her day special. They made the room up with decorations and balloons, at dinner they sang for her in their traditional way and baked a cake for the occasion. Thank you Rushaga!!
