About Uganda Hotel Owners' Association.

The Drive to make 'top' destination even better.

The Uganda Hotel Owners' Association (UHOA) is a trade and lobbying organisation that includes almost all of the nation's hotels, lodges and camps among its members. 

UHOA sets high standards for its members and those includes within  this publication can all be recommended by our Association, from Kampala's finest five- star property to a more modest guesthouse far away from the capital.

Expansion:

Uganda has witnessed a vast expansion of its hotel sector and this growth continues- at a higher rate in Kampala than in the recent past, but just as energetically outside the city as capacity grows to meet demand.


Lonely Planet has rated Uganda the world's top ''must see'' destination for 2012. I am sure this assessment is correct and we, as an industry association, are working hard to live up to Lonely Planet's star billing.

 It is easy to see why Uganda is so highly thought of. We have some of the  Africa's best and most varied wildlife parks and certain strengths in terms of our attractions and activities- especially our range of primates, our incredible bird species and the continued popularity of adrenalin sports centered on the town of Jinja.

We still need to do more in regard to promoting  Uganda and to giving visitors more reasons than ever to come and enjoy our country, the Pearl of Africa; but rest assured that UHOA, along with the Uganda Tourism Board (UTB), will be at the forefront of this drive.
