Our home is a place to relax after the intense experiences of the day, a place to chat while having a beer or two, to rest, watch TV or go for a walk around the neighborhood. From the home, we can help arrange trips and expeditions around the country. These include wildlife safaris, city tours, hiking, white water rafting, kayaking, forest nature walks, horse-riding, fishing trips, mountain bike tours and culture tours.

The space
Our home is open to both tourists, travelers of all kinds and international volunteers alike. A portion of proceeds got from both tours and travelers staying with us go into supporting projects run by our not-for-profit organization. Visitors and those staying with us are welcome to check on our projects.

Mukono town is strategically located between Kampala city (the capital of Uganda) and Jinja city (the adventure capital of East Africa). Mukono is a rapidly expanding city about 45 minutes from Kampala and 60 minutes away from Jinja and about 1:30hrs from Entebbe International Airport.

All beds are fitted with good quality mattresses, mosquito nets, cotton sheets and pillows. Most people who stay with us are travelling alone and this provides a perfect opportunity for you to meet others and make plans for traveling around Uganda together with the ones you meet.

Furthermore, we offer pre-arrival support by answering your questions about Uganda and if you want to share your skills by volunteering, we find a project that best fits your skills and interests (if you are to volunteer).

We offer in-country assistance by collecting you from the airport, getting you to your placement, and unraveling some of the more complicated cultural issues you face when entering Uganda for the first time.

Although there are other accommodation facilities in Mukono town, there is no other home like Mukono Travelers’ Home. We have the space and atmosphere for people to relax, have fun, chat, work and watch DVD's. People come from all around the world and stay from days to few weeks with us.

Our home has:
 Wi-Fi
 Good Kitchen
 Mountain Bikes for Hire
 Camping tents for hire
 4X4 and Saloon Cars for hire
 Offer laundry services

Guest access
Our guests have access to the mini bar, gardens and kitchen. Our home breaths a relaxed family atmosphere. So you are always assured of a homely environment. Very few restrictions. We offer a safe and friendly environment to make you feel at home.

Other things to note
Favorite past times in Mukono include having a cold beer in one of the rooftop bars, amazing night life at local bars or getting out of town for a day trip.

Activities:
Uganda is a beautiful and diverse country with Mukono being a gateway to many activities especially in East (transit point to Kenya). Most famously Uganda is known for the amazing Mountain Gorillas and Mt. Rwenzori and Elgon or relaxing on the beautiful Lake Victoria islands.



Safaris:
Safaris are the most obvious and popular attraction, with 1-15 day trips available. Here you can experience the famous gorillas, Murchison falls safaris and Mountain climbing, tours and Mabira forest tours.

Small group camping safaris of 4-6 days are the most popular option for our volunteers as they are cost effective and provide an amazing experience of sleeping in the middle of the parks - a memory which will never be forgotten.

Other Attractions:
There are many weekend trips that can be easily organized once here. These include white water rafting, mountain bike tours, mountain climbing and so many others. An overnight stay at the beautiful shores of river nile or Jinja nightlife and shopping.
At Mukono Travelers’ Home, we can assist with organizing any of these activities plus many more.

Location

Mukono, Central Region, Uganda

Our home is located in a humble neighborhood of Mukono town, we are nestled away from all the noise of the big city, but close enough to 'quickly' get you back to downtown to sight see or party at the pubs and clubs until the birds are chirping.

Mukono is considered very safe. You are encouraged to be careful walking around with valuables however the locals are very friendly and they associate foreigners with volunteers.

I am Isaac Ssamba, the team leader at SunTrack Adventures, Homestays Uganda and Mukono Travelers' Home. We opened up our home for people who would like to visit and explore Uganda, but prefer to stay with a local family to save on extreme hotel bills and also for culture immersion experience and we named our initiative Homestays Uganda. We also started Mukono Travelers’ Home as a place to host volunteers and travelers who were in need of affordable accommodation away from the noise of the city. Our facilities are primarily aimed at volunteers, backpackers and budget travelers but others are welcome to stay (expats, tourists and mid-range travelers and travelers of all sorts). For volunteers, it is a place to relax after the intense experiences of the day, and to discuss these with other volunteers. From the home, we can help arrange trips and expeditions around the country including wildlife safaris, mountaineering, culture tours, mountain bike tours, white water rafting and so many other activities.

During your stay
It is not easy to come to a completely foreign culture on your own. We want to be there for you to give you encouragement, advice and support in order for you to get the most out of your holiday or volunteer placement while you are here.
