This lodge was a real Waw experience. We arrived here just a few days before December 24 in 2012 and were the only guests at the lodge. The staff were very helpful from first contact, taking care of luggage, going though the paperwork, and all of this happened in the beautiful dining room and reception area and terrace with an...

We stayed at Engagi Lodge in June 2013. The staff was incredibly warm, friendly and accommodating. Our room had a big glass door that looked out on the forest as did the restaurant and lounge. Our laundry was done (at no charge) each day. We were even escorted to the ranger office for our gorilla trek even though it was... More

My girlfriend & I spent 5 nights in Bwindi/Buhoma. Engagi Lodge was truly our home away from home- a welcome respite from the rigors of Ugandan travel. We LOVED this lodge! It's got it all - a great location in the town (walking distance to the park for the gorilla tracking), incredible views of the magnificent Bwindi forest, and a... More

We love Bwindi. The climate is cool with lush forests and a very friendly village. The Engagi lodge has a fabulous restaurant/deck that looks across the valley to the forest. We had great birdwatching from the deck. The service was fabulous and we enjoyed the meals. While we were on our gorilla safari (tough hike but worth it) a family... More

I have visited Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park on several occasions and this is one of my favourite two (or three!) places. It definitely has the best views in Buhoma. THE best. The roofs are high and light (banana fibre) which opens up the forest like you're watching the Discovery Channel from beside the open, cracking fire taking away the... More

i recently stayed at Engagi Lodge as part of my Uganda tour with Avian Watch. This tour company which specializes in birding selected the lodge because of the wonderful vantage point the deck offers. It overlooks a valley and has lots of areas for bird-watching, likely the best place in all of the area. The lodge itself is comfortable, has... More

Engagi lodge was my home for 2 nights. It was for several reasons a special stay. 1. it was my base for the gorilla trecking 2. during the two days i was the only guest in the lodge. The lodge is approx. 1 km away from the Visitors center where you get the briefing before starting the gorilla trecking. The... More

Even though I didn't stay at Engagi Lodge, I spent most afternoons birding from the verandah, which had beautiful views of the forest. I saw a variety of bird species, black-and-white colobus, and red-tailed monkey from the deck. The staff are friendly and very accommodating, evening calling my camp to confirm dinner potential dinner reservations. I would definitely stay here... More

Ok so the room was not as big as any other lodges I’ve stayed in Uganda, but it was nice and cozy. I think this was the only lodge that didn’t have mosquitos in the room itself because it was provided with floor to ceiling glass doors (obviously). I think what this lodge has going for them is the location... More

Gorgeous views with gorillas visiting if you are very lucky. Cold beer, great birds, they're all right here. Rooms lovely but be VERY careful on slippery stone path to the rooms. They even supply hot water bottles in bed and hiking poles for the gorilla trek. We stayed 3 nights, best of the whole 3 week trip. Food fine. Staff... More
