About Us

Boomu Women’s Group is a women’s group located 13 miles from Masindi on the edge of the Murchison Falls National Park; Uganda’s largest national park. Boomu means together and this describes the purpose of the group: to work together for our mutual benefit and the benefit of our communities.  We are a member of the Ugandan Community Tourism Association (UCOTA).

We have a community tourism project offering bandas, camping, showers and toilets. We are located on the road to Murchison Falls National Park, just a few hundred yards ahead of the park entrance, 8 kilometers from the Kaniyo Pabidi chimpanzee eco-tourist viewing site. The many trees, shrubs, flowers, birds and butterflies we have gives our site a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. The site enjoys the best of both worlds, seclusion and accessibility.

A view of our site

We offer an opportunity to meet the people your stay will directly benefit, gain an insight into their lives and the issues that affect them, experience life in rural Uganda and learn about how your stay will benefit them. 

We have a craft shop with a variety of crafts.  We would be delighted to show you how our crafts are made and teach you how to make your own basket.   We also offer food and drinks which combined with our facilities making us an ideal place for stopovers, day trips from Masindi and picnics.

Please read the rest of the website to learn more about us, our project and community tourism.  We hope that you will consider visiting us as part of your trip to Murchison Falls National Park and/or Masindi.
