About the Homestay
I am Isaac, a farmer, social entrepreneur & philanthropist, I am the founder of Beacon of Hope Uganda an ethical and responsible travel operator & humanitarian service organization in Uganda.
I am also the Head of Operations at Go Volunteer Africa and a director at Wanderlust Adventures a tours & safaris company in Uganda.
I recently opened up my home (Amazing Host Family Home) for people who would like to visit and explore Uganda, but prefer to stay with a local family.
My home is open to both tourists, travelers of any kind and volunteers serving in Uganda, living within or close to Mukono.
Our home is situated in Mukono along the Kayunga road and about 3 minutes’ drive from Mukono town central business centre.
Mukono is a rapidly expanding city about 45 minutes from Kampala and 60 minutes away from Jinja town- the adventure capital of Uganda.
Our home is a great place to hang your hat and rest your weary bones….. and getting ready to enjoy and explore fascinating Uganda.
Located in a humble neighborhood of Mukono town, we are nestled away from all the noise of the big town, but close enough to quickly get you back to downtown to sight see or party at the pubs and clubs until the birds are chirping.
Our home offers:
Fully Equipped Kitchen
Special trips can be arranged (Safaris, wildlife adventures, treks, etc)
Mountain Bikes to rent
Camping tents for hire
Families are welcome.
Car for hire
We are people who love meeting new friends and making connections. We just don’t get satisfied with meeting only people of our area and it’s the reason behind the set up of our home as a host family for travelers to broaden our horizons in making friends from other countries and meet people from different cultures and backgrounds.
