Meetings & Conferences
At Xanadu Collection, we believe in the importance of contributing to the well being of our country, which is why we have chosen to name our five conference rooms after endangered bird species in Uganda.
The Fox Weaver (Ploceus spekeoides)
A member of the Ploceidae family, the Fox Weaver is endemic to the Soroti region of Uganda. Its natural habitats are moist savanna, subtropical or tropical seasonally wet or flooded lowland grassland, and swamps.
Found on the Ground floor with a seating capacity of 30 Guests, the Foxweaver is perfect for functions like small meetings.
The Ituri Batis
The Ituri batis is a very small bird with a broad black breast and white underbelly, like a small shrike or old world flycatcher which is white below with a broad black breast band, a black head with a conspicuous white Loral spot in front of a bright yellow eye.
Found on the Ground floor with a seating capacity of 30 Guests, the Ituri is perfect for functions like Birthdays & Baby showers as well as small conferences.
The Karamoja Apalis (Apalis karamojae)
The Karamoja Apalis is found mainly in North-east Uganda in Kidepo National Park. It was first discovered in 1919 in the Karamoja District of north east Uganda, hence its English name.
Found on the Ground floor with a seating capacity of 30 Guests, the Apalis is perfect for functions like Birthdays & Baby showers.
The Nkulengu Rail (Himantornis haematodus)
The Nkulengu Rail is a member of the Rallidae family, which consists of a number of terrestrial, marsh and aquatic birds. This species is not likely to be migratory and inhabits dense lowland primary and secondary rain forest where rank vegetation lines streams, rivers, and swamps or marshy areas.
Also found on the Ground floor with a seating capacity of 40 Guests, the Nkulengu is perfect for functions like Birthdays & Baby showers.
The Shoebill (Balaeniceps rex)
The unmistakable, prehistoric-looking shoebill is one of the most impressive birds to be found in Africa. A mysterious inhabitant of impenetrable marshes, this tall wading bird possesses a bluish-grey plumage, long black legs, broad wings and muscular neck, but is undeniably dominated by its fantastically unique ‘shoe like’ bill, from which its common name derives.
Found on the first floor with a seating capacity of 300 Guests, the Shoebill is suitable for all functions that expect a big turn up.
