Bwindi Lodge is the ideal place from which to explore the forests of Bwindi for their elusive inhabitants, habituated gorilla and chimpanzee groups.

The recently refurbished lodge has just eight bandas (thatch roofed cottages), all with en suite bathrooms and terraces overlooking the forest.

There are several further viewing platforms and viewpoints at the main lodge from which guests can watch monkeys messing about in the canopy at breakfast, and where they can enjoy a well-earned fireside drink (the guests, not the monkeys) after a hard day's gorilla tracking. The recently opened Humala Forest Spa provides an alternative way to relax post-gorilla tracking.

Aside from primate tracking in the forest, the lodge can arrange visits to community projects and to meet the local Batwa pygmy people to find out about their culture and lifestyle.

Why We Love It

Gorilla tracking can involve several hours trekking through thickly forested mountainsides, but if you are particularly lucky, you can avoid all this entirely as the gorillas occasionally come down to the lodge.
