Meetings at This Location

The Speke Resort & Conference Center offers you the ultimate in luxury accommodations and leisure facilities, together with the finest conference and business meeting location in East Africa. The resort is located on the shores of Lake Victoria in Munyonyo, 12 kilometers from the heart of Kampala City. The resort is spread over 50 acres and extends for more than 400 meters along the shores of Lake Victoria, and overlooks the lake and nearby islands. The shore of Lake Victoria are pristine, while landscaped gardens of indigenous plants and trees attract colorful birds and butterflies. Wide, well lit pathways link the cottages, apartments and public areas, and the nearby Speke Equestrian Centre is the only equestrian centre in Uganda. Hire a speedboat or canoe from the resort and give yourself and your friends the pleasure of riding on the waters of Lake Victoria or take a plunge in the Olympic size swimming pool
