We stayed here thinking it was the only cheap option for staying near Ngungwe Forest. Read the other reviews saying it was over priced, and when we got there we agreed. Bedrooms are clean and fine for a short stay, food isn't anything special. For 6,000 RWF (about £6) I got some rice, green beans and chips, which was a...

Gisakura Guest House is really near Park Nyungwe. Its managet, Joseph, is nice and always ready to help if anything. However be careful with the price negotiated with his taxi friends as they tend to be higher than what was agreed. The rooms are basic for the price asked but they have all you need. Also they have hot water...

We visited Nyungwe natl. park in mid December 2015 (rainy season), while staying two nights at Gisakura guest house. Getting there was not that comfy, but stil doable. We took bus from Kibuye to Cyangugu getting off at Bahinga crossing (junction) (though price had to be paid all the way to Cyangugu). From there we took motorbike ride directly to...

We spent two nights at the Gisakura Guest house. So glad we did! The rooms are spacious but basic and the sheets were damp (which bothered us the most, but we knew it'd be the same thing no matter where we stayed in Nyungwe). But the showers are nice and hot. And the manager Joseph was really nice and helpful...

Could do with a refurb... beautiful surrounding gardens. Pretty basic. Our bed was small and the mattress made us sag into the middle so a very uncomfortable night's sleep - and we're not big people! The food put on in the evening was tasty, and beer available.

Very recommendable. Simple rooms with mosquito nets and towels. Always clean. Very good dinner, served as small buffé but breakfast and their packed lunch were a disappointment. All in all a very nice place with great and helpful staff with good English and French,

Rooms in this place are a bit run down, but the beds are good and I had 2 good nights. Bathrooms are shared. Hot showers! Food is good - but don't be surprised if they serve you the same thing twice in a row.

This guesthouse is pretty decent - comfortable beds, mosquito nets, great dinner. Its a budget location if you're doing activities at the national park. You must have a vehicle to get to Uwinka, the main visitor center at the park where most hikes start from. The visitor center at the guesthouse only offers one hike to see colobus monkeys, not...

I enjoyed a few very special days respite after being on the move through Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Rwanda on safaris with On-the-Go and G-Adventure. Convenient for bird watching and walking in Nyungwe Forest which is a magnificent wilderness. Basic, clean and comfortable with shared bathrooms. Food good, wholesome set menu. The staff are most pleasant and helpful including booking...
