"Oh my God I want to move here
This place was Africa at it's best. First of all it was affordable AND nice, something almost impossible to find in my experience. It's basic - there was no electricity or hot water, but they heated water for you when you needed a shower and it was lovely. It was great to have no computer, internet, music for a few days. The setting is spectactular, and they have worked hard to create a lovely space - the gardens are welcoming, there is a great porch, a fire every night, flowers on our bed when we arrived...I really just loved it so much".

"The best place to be close to the forest of Mgahinga. The nights are cold and there is nothing better than a warm fire in the living room. The night is full of stars and the scent of flowers. In the morning we are at a moment of departure for Golden Monkeys, gorillas or climb volcanoes. Excellent and very economical. Profits go to local communities".

"If you are booking this accomodation remember you are booking it for the location and to support a community project and it's cheap. Your accomodation will not have electricity or running water, but it will be clean, will have the most amazing view and will be run by some of the most friendly people we met on our travels."
