Tinka’s Homestay

Experience the local life of Tooro culture when you stay with Tinka’s family. You will share everything from meals, housing, local stories, and the daily home chores. The home is safe, clean with hospitable family members. It is a highlight of many travelers who visit Kibale National park to track chimps and other 13 primates species. The home is strategically located near Bigodi swamp.

Why stay with us?

We offer high-quality accommodation at a very low price. Our low price includes meals and experience of interacting with the family members as they show you around the home and village. The homestay is located closest to that National park and Bigodi swamp, making it a perfect starting point to go chimp tracking or other forest exploration activities in and around Kibale National Park. 

Our amenities:

Guests share the home with the family though they can also opt to stay in separate private rooms outside the main house. the facilities have clean flushing toilets and overhead showers. the bedrooms are furnished with beddings and towels. Our grass-thatched sheds are perfect for lunch and other teambuilding activities by the entire family. 

What you can do here:

Most guests coming to Kibale plan to do the famous Chimp tracking. However, the surroundings of Kibale National park and the communities are also interesting for visitors. From the home, we can arrange the Bigodi village cultural walk, the Bigodi swamp walk, chimp tracking, and other forest activities.
