I was going gorilla tracking in Uganda, but entering the country through Rwanda unlike most trackers. I needed a lot help organizing my gorilla permits and travel around Bwindi. Lucky for me I contacted Golden Monkey Guest House to make a booking and I found out that they also have an in-house tour company, Virunga Adventure Tours. Through communicating with Jackson on Facebook they helped me arrange everything, and once I arrived at the guest house everything was prepared for my tracking experience.
Martha at the front desk was a pleasure to work with, and the owner Sheba was the life of the party. The guest house was full of happy customers (some drop-ins were actually turned away because the hotel was fully booked) and Sheba spent the evenings socializing with us and other guests. I spent several weeks travelling around East Africa and the Golden Monkey Guest House stands out as one the places that invests the most into taking care of its guests. I can't imagine a better place in tiny Kisoro.
