We went gorilla trekking at the beginning of July and stayed here in 'Tent 1' for a couple of days. Out of all the permanent tented camps we stayed in over our 4 week trip (and there were a few) this was by far the best. The staff were very attentive, great service, the room was very large, the bathroom... More

We stayed here for two nights while we went gorilla trekking. The staff treated us very well, and I felt that they cared. The room is a very large and nice tent and very basic. The bathrooms are minimal and the water is not very warm, I think that is because it is heated with a wood burning water heater.... More

We were excited to arrive here as we were so looking foward to Gorilla Trekking. However, although the lodge/restaurant area and tents were quite nice, no effort was made to make us feel welcome, in fact we felt more of a burden. No hot water the first night when we could have done with it, there was even a bath... More

Loved this resort, really well situated overlooking part of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest; luxury tents with large comfy beds and a freestanding bath for extra luxury. This was the only place in Uganda that we stayed that had a bath and almost the first thing I did was run a hot bath. The roads to Bwindi are almost exclusively dirt... More

We spent 4 nights here on a Safari package. The resort is in a very good position for the gorilla trekking from Buhoma, but is a very rough minimum 2 hour drive to other trekking points. You can actually walk up to then Buhoma start point. The staff here were very friendly and tried hard to make our stay good.... More

There is NO reason to stay here. The bathrooms are not fully screened. The staff will lie to you and tell you that there is no malaria when the clinic (a few mud shacks down) is burdened with malaria and HIV. Be prepared for the destructive encroachment of the local community into the gorilla habitat. It is a dysfunctional, unprotected... More

Located inside the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest this hotel, part of the Sanctuary Group, is an excellent place to stay. As one family of Gorilla's lives nearby we were fortunate enough to have a visit from the family right inside the camp one morning during breakfast. It was truely amazing. The staff are very friendly, the rooms are very spacious with... More

We stayed at the Gorilla resort, it was our best location in Uganda, the staff is very friendly and helpful. The food was also delicious. About the location I just can say that it is great and the view is breathtaking!

Positives: Charming tents as bedrooms and large reception halls / dining room. The warm water bottle inn bed in the evening is a nice touch. Negatives: Few working lights. One of the lights started smoking. This was in room 6. Towels are not replaced even when left on the floor. They ask what time you want lunch or dinner, yet... More

We stayed in gorilla camp resort during our honeymoon in oktober 2012. We had a great stay, the staff is very friendly, especially Fred. The drive to the starting point of the gorilla tracking was bumpy, the gorilla safari great. Every evening a hot water bottle in the bed, and shoes were cleaned after the gorilla safari.
