I came to Bwindi for gorilla trekking. I stayed one night at the lodge. I was traveling by myself. The stay was exceptional. The service, the room, the location. I simply could not have asked for a better stay. Joann (the manager) tended to every request. The food was delicious and the attention to detail rivaled Michelin starred restaurants. I...

A series of lovely lodges set on stilts into the hillside gardens with lovely views and very comfortably furnished. Excellent service, good food and just a few yards from the Gorilla Safari trailhead. Clean, secure and peaceful. Highly recommended.

This lodge has an amazing view of the mountain terrain and some local villages. The rooms felt like a hotel, with the most comfortable beds. Great bathroom. The chef cooked the most delicious breakfast, lunches, and dinner. Staff was very friendly and fun.

Impeccable service and a 100 metres from the gorilla guides centre. The staff looked after our every needs and were trained to the highest of western standards. We were made to feel very much at home and they took real interest in our sightings. We would recommend this to anyone looking for privacy and luxury.
