Billed as a budget option in guide books, this is nevertheless a very good option if you are off gorilla tracking. Just inside the gates of the National Park it is next door to the Ranger Station from where the gorilla tracking starts. The setting overlooking the forest is superb. The lodge itself consists of a dining and reception area... More

nothing but could stuff to say about the rest camp....having made the choice to book , because it is as the name suggests its run by the local community and we did want to help in some small way bring some work for the locals... we were prepared for this part of our trip to be a little less comfortable...

Stayed here for gorilla tracking and loved it. I can still imagine inhaling the crisp jungle and seeing all the green around me. The camp is located 2 minutes form the gorilla tracking starting point, which is very convenient, and 2 minutes in the other direction, from the village where you can stroll among the gift shops in the afternoon....

Lovely area near the forest and starting point for the gorilla treks. The permanent tents are clean and comfortable with mosquito netting, but the attached bathroom is open to bugs. The shower worked well. There is forest all around the tents and so at times some gorilla families have walked onto the grounds. That would be amazing to see, but... More

This was ideal for our stay to do Gorilla Trekking, the staff were very helpful and friendly. Food was good and they got up early on our departure date to collect our cases, and provide breakfast. Rooms were Ok, a bit damp, but we were in the rainforest!

This place is genuine in every way. I stayed in a safari tent, others in my group were in the self contained tents or in the bandas. 13 people rated this the best, most enjoyable place they stayed on their safari in Uganda or the second best. Quiet, peaceful and directly adjacent to the gorilla trek briefing point. 1. Beds... More

...it's good! It's not luxury, it doesn't pretend to be. Staff very helpful and friendly, good and drink homely (but perfectly adequate), same for the accommodation (I was in a banda); pathways down to them are a bit rough 'n ready, but that's all part of its charm. And, it's good value for money, which can't be said of everything... More

We stayed for 6 nights. The beds were comfortable; the mosquito net had holes in it but mosquitoes were not a problem in July 2014. the food was not great but certainly good. The people were wonderful! However the bathroom facilities did not meet any standard. Our toilet would flush with lots of water but it required several flushes to... More

I loved it, sleeping in a tent reminded me of camping trips when I was little. The ensuite connected to the back of the tent was terrific, the shower had really good pressure and hot water. Just what you need after trekking. The meals were good and the staff friendly. I trekked the gorillas on my 50th birthday and that... More

Because the staff is so nice here, you feel bad complaining about the property. This is a beautiful location, right inside the park and extremely convenient to the start of the gorilla tours. We got very lucky and our hike was short – about an hour – and I could hear the gorillas in the forest the night before our... More
