It is called Rwenzori home-stay and can be booked through Uganda Community tourism association at or contacted directly. The home-stay has a Facebook @rwenzorihomestay and more information can be found there.

Just like the other accommodations, Rwenzori home-stay is a suitable base for exploring the Rwenzori Mountains both through the community guided trails on the lower slopes or trekking the high mountains. The community trails are being run by Ruboni community camp, a different community tourism at the gateway. It is located at the base camp where recruitment of porters and guides is done. To the visitors, this home-stay offers private furnished bedrooms, bed and breakfast, shared living room, access to the kitchen if visitors want to make their own meals, secure packing garage, Wi-Fi connection*, ample playing space and information about Rwenzori trekking. The visitors can share the rest of the meals with the family. The family also has a small secure leveled ground that can be used for large or small group camping.
