Recently we stayed in this ‘second-home’ of Dian Fossey, Traveller’s rest in Kisoro, Uganda. Nice place, but not a second home to us. In the night of Jan 6-7 2012 we were robbed of money (our spare gorilla permit) and equipment (a.o. camera, phone) and the hotel refused all responsibility. Worse, to keep their record clean they denied the theft and accused us of setting it up, telling this to all guests and the police joining in common interest.
So if you still decide to stay here, take care .
