The coronavirus (COVID19) pandemic has confirmed us in our homes and towns. The devastating virus has ensured that we cannot freely cross national borders let alone leave our cities for travel adventures.
The virus has battered the global tourism industry hard; tourists can barely leave their home towns to tour the world. Those that are doing it are bravely embracing the risk of contracting and spreading the killer virus.
In Uganda, a year of dipped arrival of foreign tourists and restricted movement of Ugandans has promoted domestic tourism – now, instead of Ugandans traveling to destinations like Dubai, they’re touring domestically.
This has been good business for local destinations and service providers who are now designing travel and getaway packages for local tourists – a blessing in disguise.
One such demand-driven and tailor-made domestic tourism package is the Group Getaway being offered by Forest Cottages, a hotel located on Naguru Hill, Old Kira Road (Bukoto). It’s part of the Speke Group of Hotels.
With just Shs3.5m, you can have a full package which goes with breakfast, lunch buffet, barbeque dinner and nonstop fan. The package comes with ten rooms for twenty people – it can be family, friends or workmates.
Forest Cottages is a designed luxury cottages hotel set in a serene forest environment. The accommodation facilities at the Cottages are carefully landscaped, huge, made in indigenous material.
The expansive Cottages offer customers comfort and entertainment away from their homes.
Forest Cottages has a swimming pool, health club facilities, conference facilities, restaurants and tour services. The natural rooms have WiFi, telephones and locally made furniture.
The artistic hotel provides a small sanctuary for forest wildlife such as colored turacoes, hornbills, and an additional 20 bird species. The secluded hotel offers peace and quietness in a natural green setting or the excitement of waking up to hummingbirds.
All this beauty is topped up friendly and courteous and professional staff members.
