GREEN OASIS STORY
The Management and Staff of Green Oasis Guest House and Tours warmly welcome you to our Website.
We are committed to making your stay as comfortable as possible, providing you with a ‘home away from home’.
Green Oasis Guest House started very much as an idealist’s dream. Convinced that Africa needs more than aid to lift it out of poverty, the owners decided to invest all their savings in this Cosy homely Guest House, thus creating employment opportunities, markets, and taxes that pay for social services. It is their small contribution to the development of Uganda, which has had more than its share of conflict and political upheaval, in the hope that their example will inspire others.
At Green Oasis Guest House and Tours, one gets a feel of what the young journalist and future British Prime Minister Winston Churchill meant when he described Uganda in his 1908 book ‘My African Journey’: For magnificence, for variety of form and colour, for profusion of brilliant life – plant, bird, insect, reptile, beast -, for vast scale… Uganda is truly the pearl of Africa.
Uganda’s potential as a tourism hotspot lies in its mosaic of landscapes, from thick forests to snow- capped mountain ranges and vast plains studded with crater lakes, and its array of adventurous activities. There are opportunities for climbing and trekking; watersports such as sailing, fishing, canoeing and whitewater rafting on Lake Victoria and the river Nile; and plenty of wildlife watching options from tracking mountain gorillas on foot through the jungle to more traditional ‘big five’ safaris on the plains.
At Green Oasis Guest House, you can relax in our forest oasis, access Internet at the business centre, organise workshops or meetings at our conference centre and enjoy our fine continental and Ugandan dishes at the restaurant. Although our menu is quite extensive, should you have a special wish, our Chef will be delighted to be at your service.
