Jesus told them: "Come aside by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while." (Mark 6:31)
All who are looking for a place like that are warmly welcome on the Prayer Mountain – single guests as well as groups. In a wonderful height of 1.340 metres with a view on Lake Victoria and the source of the river Nile, we offer such a quiet place. With all senses you can experience here that Winston Churchill was right when he called Uganda the "Pearl of Africa".
Why not preventing a Burn-Out and enjoying this tropical piece on earth? Our location and our space offer room for individuals, couples, families, as well as for groups, seminaries and conferences.
For conferences the target group for the ICT (International Christian Trainings centre) in House Jacob on the Prayer Mountain are especially leaders and bosses from the christian and also secular sectors (politics, society, economy) from Uganda, Europe and internationally.
The holiday on the Prayer Mountain for individuals or families/friends groups can either take place directly after a "Come & See!"-Tour or as "Come & Rest"-guests, or otherwise independently from the other program and individually to plan in form of a "Stay & Rest" relaxing holiday.
For adventure there are on the Prayer Mountain and in the surrounding other action activities possible like:
Wild-water-rafting on the river Nile
Swimming in Lake Victoria
Safaris (Wild animals Safari, Horse-Safari)
Motor cycle tours on muddy roads
