          You mentioned needing to lock the geodome room with a padlock. Would a cable lock that I use to lock my backpack work also? A padlock is so heavy to carry.

          The locks are only for the cubbies. The front desk can provide these. The domes themselves have no doors (or front wall), so you can't lock it.

          HELP! I am travelling solo to Uganga next month. Please tell me how does one get to Byoona Amagara from Kampala? I dont want to do gorilla trekking. Only want to stay at Lake Buyonyi for 4 days /3nights. And do the canoe, hike, bird watching etc. Please provide details of your tour/trip/stay. Should I find a tor for this? Or just car rental coming and going to kampala? Thanks!
