This is my 5th visit to the Nkuringo Gorilla Camp in Uganda. If you are looking to see the endangered mountain gorilla, amazing birdlife, pristine primary forest, daunting volcanos rising above the horizon and the lush green lakes and hills of south western Uganda, there is no better place to stay than the Nkuringo Gorilla Camp. The camp is located... More

We have been to the gorilla camp before in 2013 and it has had a complete refurbishment since then. It was amazing in 2013, perfect setting and the staff are well trained for travellers. The food was excellent even by European standards and the rooms are well designed, this is a total retreat after your early morning treks around the... More

I'm having trouble finding the words to explain just how amazing this place is. Beautiful location, stunning views, super friendly and helpful staff. I spent 2 nights in a tent then treated myself to a cozy bed on the last night. Even the tent was lovley because of the hot waterbottle I found tucked into my sleeping bag. The cabin... More

I really enjoyed the staff and the surroundings of this lodge. Bosco the manager was considerate and helpful. Josephine, Victoria and the rest of the crew provided service from making the food, serving it, washing clothes, turning down the beds to "hot water" bottles in your mattress. I felt well cared for. The food was excellent. The lodge tour guides... More

Nkuringo has a really great location for gorilla tracking, and the village itself is a wonderful place. The facilities are good at the camp and the view is breathtaking. Lastly, the food and the staff are also superb as is the case with so many places in Uganda.

My wife and I just recently completed a 5-day walking safari with Nkuringo Walking Safaris (Feb. 2015), spending our last 3 nights at the Nkuringo Gorilla Camp. We had a wonderful holiday. For the year prior to leaving on our trip, Lydia helped us plan and customize our entire trip down to the smallest detail (including obtaining our gorilla permits)... More

I landed here in the worst of circumstances- very very very ill, unable to eat, unable to trek. My guide got me to the room (which is gorgeous mind you, so pretty that even though I was wobbling in my hiking boots and fell face first into the pillow upon arrival I did make note of the fabulous grounds.

Stayed at the camp 3 nights as part of Dream Challenges Trek Uganda 2015, and then spent an extra 2 nights as just a family. The views from the camp are wonderful and that adjective also applies to the staff, who just cant do enough for you. The food was excellent throughout our stay always fresh and very tasty.

This was one of the best experiences I have had in Uganda. The staff is truly friendly and charming, food is nice, rooms are beautiful, the manager is more than helpful. Community walks are great and so is the scenery around. I can definately recommend this place!
