For those in seek of adventure and quality time with themselves, nature and authentic african communities, this is an affordable option which does not mean uncomfortable. The facilities are basic, yet good and clean and most importantly, this is where you get the real thing, the feeling that you're away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and of busy places in East Africa like Nairobi or Central Kampala. Plus, on a clear day views are breathtaking.
Besides the owner, the place is run by locals who also happen to be warm and kind people you can have a great conversation with. The cooks are ugandan as well and they are so good at cooking food for those not willing to try something far too exotic but at the same time at adding their own magical touch.
The place is a great option for gorilla trackers. Bwindi is an amazing spot for your gorilla tracking experience.
For those getting there by public transport, be careful because while you get to share your trip with great, real african people, it is also true that some drivers are crazy so taking buses, boda boda or private hires can be seriously dangerous.
