We were on a family trip with 10 of us and Julius looked after us brilliantly. Friendly, kind and anticipated our needs before we even asked. We asked about an avocado tree that we could see from the balcony and at the next meal we ate the ripest most delicious avocados I’d ever tasted. At breakfast our boys were fighting over the delicious crispy bacon - and another plate just arrived. Beautiful setting, clean rooms with piping hot water, and delicious and copious food - and great, smiling, kind service - Julius is a star - thank you.

We were greeted very warmly on arrival by Julius and his team. The main reception area is very stylish with a terrace overlooking breathtaking mountain views. There’s a bar and seating area by the fire which was really cosy in the evenings. Our rooms were separate lodges in the forest. Very well equipped. Tom looked after us extremely well and brought us tea and coffee each morning on our wake up call before our gorilla tracking expeditions. Our beds were turned down each evening with nets carefully placed. There was a good selection of meals each day which were delicious and generously portioned. Our packed lunches were also generous! We felt very much at home at Engagi and no request was too much. The lodge is in a perfect position as it’s minutes away from the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest Gorilla tracking and the Main Street in Bwindi. We often visited the Bwindi Bar up the road in the evenings. . A visit to the Batwa tribe is also a must which is a few minutes away. I will definitely stay at Engagi lodge again as we were made to feel so welcome.

This lodge is fabulous. The dining room opens onto the magnificent Impenetrable Forest. The cabins are beautiful. The food is excellent (and is served with napkins that are folded differently every night!). But best of all is the staff -- after just two nights we felt like family.

Engagi lodge was our first stay on our tour and we were only booked to stay one night unfortunately. The Room: We had a private lodge that was clean, spacious bathroom with hot water and mosquito net that they prepped for you while you enjoyed dinner. They have electricity in the room for lights, but they do not offer enough to allow for you to charge phones, cameras or anything like that in the room. They have the charging station in the lounge up at the main area. The service: The staff was wonderful for our short stay. They carried all of our luggage for us and even dusted it off since it was a bit dirty from the dirt road drive in! The staff prepped our breakfast at 5am to allow for us to have an early start for our gorilla trekking adventure! We weren’t there long for us to build much of a relationship with the staff but all were wonderful while we were there. The food: The best pumpkin soup of the trip! Portion sizes were appropriate for breakfast and dinner and our take-away lunch was more than enough food for each of us. All food was tasty, but my husband is still craving that soup a week later! Overall: The lodge has a beautiful view overlooking the forest. They have their own little trail that goes down to a creek and allows for you to take a mini hike on the property. Although part of it is currently under repair, we still enjoyed part of the trail upon arrival. Wi-fi and charging stations at the main lodge are perfect to allow for you to enjoy a cocktail while you hang out for dinner and it also helps you disconnect when you go to your room. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend to future travelers who are comfortable disconnecting!

One of several lodges along a road overlooking the rainforest. Pros - Nice views - Rainforest atmosphere - Close to the main gorilla tracking area (10 minutes by car) - Excellent service by the room attendant - Nice common area, with bar and fireplace Cons - Lousy food - Assistant manager who seems bored with his job The place could be much better with different cook and management...

+ (positive) . very close to gorilla tracking in Nkuringo . lobby/dining nice - (negative) . welcome: cool, we missed warmth . staff not interested, bored, they preferred their mobile phone . rooms in bungalows very small, prosaic, grubby, only 1 chair . balcony: seat pads dirty and old . none of the credit cards accepted, no shampoo, no hair dryer . WiFi and electric power charging station only in lobby... . dedicated manager is missing (we left this lodge ahead of scheduled, nobody was interested to know why!) —> . urgent to replace this management —> . I don‘t recommend this place at all!

We were made to feel very welcome here. A perfect place to rest after an energetic day with the Bwindi gorillas. The staff are very helpful, the food is very good and plentiful, the cabins are comfortable.They even cracked open the champagne for us on New Year's eve. Everything was pleasing. Highly recommended.

A friend and I stayed at this lodge in Bwindi during a gorilla and chimp safari and we highly recommend it. We had our own very comfortable cabin discreetly tucked into a hillside with views of the forest. The common area was built in traditional style, had a lovely dining area and bar with fires lit for the evenings. Service was fantastic, particularly for washing clothes after dusty days. Staff were very friendly and endlessly helpful. We were there on New Years Eve and were served complimentary champagne which was a lovely touch. This lodge is close to sector one of the Park when visiting gorillas and helps to support the local community.

Everything at the Engagi lodge was fantastic. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean; the food was tasty. They did a great job cleaning our hiking boots after our gorilla trekking. Showers were hot, and the wifi worked well. Fanatastic stay!
