The lodge is lovely, rooms private with their own veranda. What makes this lodge is their people - so friendly, chatty and helpful! The meals were all fantastic and having our boots cleaned after gorilla trekking was fantastic! We went on a village walk with Amon which was fabulous. Abrahim is the best bar man ever...you must ask him about...

I just finished spending two nights here to go gorilla trekking. From the pickup at the airport to drop off, I felt welcomed to be a guest.

The hotel is very well placed for gorilla trekking. The rooms are very comfortable and have wonderful views of the forest. The staff were particularly helpful, and it was great to find out more about their support for a local school (Bwindi plus nursery and primary school). A group of children from the school came to the hotel to show...

It's located directly next to the Buhoma gate (one of the three park HQs for accessing the gorillas) say a 5-minute drive, 10 minute walk. The hotel is lovingly designed and blends in comfortably with the surroundings. There is the main lodge with a welcoming reception area, a small gift shop, a large bar, a large dining room and an...
