Activities at Kasiisi

The Kasiisi Guesthouse allows you to take a closer look at Uganda. We’re passionate about the conservation of Uganda’s natural environment and the local community, so we give you the opportunity to experience both.

We are set within the heart of the community in the picturesque Fort Portal region of Uganda where there is an abundance of tourist and local activities for you to get involved with. In addition we provide opportunities for you to participate in active conservation projects.
