Hairy Lemon Island

Kipepeo & Sam’s Shack


  • Kipepeo: $60 per adult per night, Sam’s Shack: $55 per adult per night

Kipepeo & Sam’s Shack are our more exclusive and romantic double rooms on the island; each with a private verandah and access to the river.  Swim at leisure and in total privacy with Red Tailed monkeys cajoling above your head.

Kipepeo is now ensuite with a lovely large bathroom attached. We have also extended the room so it can comfortably accommodate a family of 4.

Sam’s Shack is not ensuite but guests have easy access to the shared ablution block at the bottom of our camping hill, which is a few short steps away.

Please Note

All our accommodation is priced as per person, per night and includes all your meals plus tea and real Ugandan coffee at breakfast as well as afternoon tea at 4pm.

Children between the ages of 6yrs - 12 years pay 50% of adult fare and children under 6 years stay free.

Please note that in an effort to reduce our footprint on the island, only River Cottage and Kipepeo have their own large bathrooms attached. River Cottage has a composting toilet; whilst Kipepeo has a flushing toilet. Kipepeo was also recently renovated so that it can comfortably accommodate a family of four.

For the rest of our guests; we have provided an open air shower block with flushing toilets close to the two twin bandas (Kusi and Kaskazi), Crocodile Dorm and Sam’s Shack. A composting toilet block can be found close to the campsite and a second open air shower block is situated close to the restaurant
