We stayed 2 nights at this nice little place. The main advantage is the location very close to the starting point of the gorilla trekking. The rooms a big and clean, and has a beautiful view over the mountains. The staff is very helpful and the food is delicious. The lodge is located quit high above sea level, so the... More

I went on a gorilla trek in Uganda in January 2014. Stayed at this lodge for two nights. The view was lovely. Rooms were clean and spacious. Staff was most helpful and friendly. Note that it is in the mountains and it can get cold at night - bring warm pjs.

I was introduced to this safari lodge by a friend since there are not so many luxury lodges in the Ruhija area and I got a good deal from the safari lodge manager, and this was affordable for three of us including our tour leader. The books were well handled by Moses, and all emails were replied in time. We... More

Because we needed to get up & leave early,it was really inconvenient to be trying to get ready in the dark,early morning! After requesting a candle,they gave me two,but nothing to... More

We stayed on honeymoon in August and loved it. We had one of the superior lodges which was lovely. When we arrived it was cold and damp and they lit a fire for us and brought hot water bottles. Staff are really friendly and the food was very good. Would stay again

If you want a true Gorillas in the Mist experience this is the place to go. 2,400 feet up in the mountains you are above the clouds for a lot of the time, got a bit cool in the evening and overnight but the open fire, that the staff made up on request, certainly made the room warm and cosy....

My children, mother, and myself were awestruck as we arrived at Ruhija Gorilla Safari Lodge. The view of the endless mountain range was incredible and we were greeted by a very friendly staff, three of whom were named Moses. Our rooms were very clean and comfortable with cozy beds, extra blankets in case of cold evenings, a fireplace, and a... More

Stayed for two nights in a deluxe room in June 2013 whilst visiting Bwindi for gorilla trekking. The staff were very friendly. Large common room/restaurant with veranda with comfy chairs overlooking the hills - a great place to sit after the hike to see the gorillas.
