I stayed at the Golden Monkey on two separate occasions while passing through Kisoro. The owner/manager Molly and her staff are great. Very friendly and accommodating. The guesthouse itself is decent for the price I paid (Ush 25,000)...reasonably clean and comfortable. Food in the restaurant is good and reasonably priced. Plus, I can't forget the resident dogs "Blanket" and "Bunny" as well. Kisoro itself is nothing to write home about, but if you find yourself passing through The Golden Monkey is a good budget choice.

- Stay at the Golden Monkey Guest House as a great base for tracking the mountain gorillas, hiking the Virguna volcanoes, canoeing the Kisoro crater lakes, bird watching, and snake safaris on Lake Mutanda. ... more less
