An exceptionally positive experience

This was an exceptionally positive experience for us in so many ways. We were warmly welcomed, had delicious breakfasts, and treated like old friends in this wonderful guesthouse. We truly appreciated how kind, friendly, and helpful everyone was at the guesthouse as this was our first visit to Uganda. We will definitely return to this guesthouse and recommend it to others who are visiting Uganda.
