Options for staying in or close Nyungwe Forest are limited so we opted for this fairly basic option rather than the very expensive nearby alternative. The position was good as we could start our trek in the forest very close by and it was convenient to have the park office on the same site. The gardens are beautiful and we were entertained by the Vervet monkeys each morning. Unfortunately there was no power for the whole of our stay and no alternative was offered - though we did get a bucket of hot water from the kitchen so we could have a bucket shower. Not having an en-suite especially when there is no power is a bit inconvenient. Breakfast was OK and the evening buffet very tasty - but steer clear of the packed lunches- inedible and not cheap.
Sam was very helpful - even lending us a dongle to access the internet as our provider did not have a good signal there.
