Uganda boasts of great weather all year round which means that regardless of the timing of your trip, you will be able to have a quick dip in the pool. There is a wide variety of hotels on Jovago.com that have great swimming pools but here is a list of unforgettable pools that we have come across in our exploration of the pearl of Uganda.
- Kyaninga Lodge – Fort Portal
Nestled in the hills overlooking the scenic crater-lake Kyaninga in Fort Portal. The stunning bean-shaped pool hangs on the edge of the Mountains of the Moon right over the blue-green water of the lake after which the lodge was named. There are few experiences more calming than a sunset over the breathtaking landscapes after a daylong hike in the mountain range.
- Africana Hotel – Kampala
For lovers of a more traditional pool, the Africana hotel is a great place. With excellent staff and a pool that allows for a proper opportunity for a swimmer to do laps and really make the most of its size, shape and perfect temperature.
- Wildwaters Lodge – Jinja
Wild Waters Lodge is located near Nazigo village in Kayunga town. It is only accessible by speedboat over the white water rapids of the Nile. The location alone is a spectacular sight. The lodge is on an island right in the middle of the Victoria Nile. The pool, though small, gives its users the unmatched experience of a cool swim in the midst of the level five rapids.
- Cassia Lodge – Buziga Hill
If you want to get away from the city but don’t have the time or budget for a 3-day getaway, Cassia Lodge is exactly where you need to be. The most beautiful view of Kampala from high up on Buziga hill is absolutely worthwhile. Enjoy a glorious sunset from their aquamarine pool and don’t forget to make use of the poolside service.
- Lake Victoria Serena
The Lake Victoria lives up to the brand; excellent in every aspect of the establishment. The pool is a perfect mix of vacation ready and an athlete’s dream. The pool is clear all the way to its floor and has marked lanes with perfect temperatures even for a late night dip.
