Charming little hostelry. Lovely staff that work to please. Admirable are the water conservation efforts, it rained the entire duration of our visit.
Wonderful masks and bric a brac to admire and purchase. Good library to wait out the rainy day, lots of literature on, surprise...Gorillas. Good food, served buffet style in clay pots and a well stocked bar. The log fire was obligingly lit after a wet afternoon's walk when we returned from Mgahinga.
Lovely place, I will stay there again for sure.
