Further information about our accommodation
What Wifi is available?
Wifi is available in the restaurant area (subject to network availability). Please ask for a password.
How is security?
Security is good but there is a lock up facility for valuables if required. Ask at reception.
Are there mosquitoes?
There are not a lot of mosquitos in the area as Lake Bunyonyi has a high altitude. However, it is advisable to use a mosquito net at night and these are provided with all beds. When untied, these should be placed over the poles at bed corners.
How reliable is the electricity?
The generator is usually on between 6.00 p.m. – 10.00 p.m. (other times by request). Sockets in rooms only work when the generator is on.
When generator is not on, there is ‘back up’ so lights will continue to work in the rooms. A socket for charging mobile (cell) phones is available in the restaurant.
Security lights are fitted outside the front door of accommodation. Please switch off when not in use.
Is there hot water?
Yes, each accommodation has a water tank holding 10 litres. If not used, it remains hot until morning.
