This small lodge is perfectly situated for gorilla trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. The individual cabanas are private, well separated from each other. The main building has a porch overlooking the edge of the forest, a great place for a Nile Special beer after a day of trekking. Although there is no wifi in the rooms, there is free access... More

We arrived from Lake Mburo after a lengthy roadtrip and were very friendly welcomed by Barrie and his wonderful staff. The location is really beautiful with a tall Mahogany tree in its lush gardens towards a small river. The cabins are really big with two double beds, big bathroom and a nice balcony with views towards the mountains. Sometimes even... More

Our group of three spent two nights at Mahogany Springs Lodge. We found Mahogany to be a great to a perfect place to begin our gorilla trekking trip. We were looked after from beginning to end. The staff were friendly with great customer service. The meals were very good and the rooms were clean with a genuine Bwindi atmosphere...beautiful location.

Overlooking the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest with a breathtaking view and the fresh Air from an undisturbed natural Forest. Mahogany Springs remains the best it the Bwindi Area. Very hospital Staff and a Peofessional Manager who makes sure the all the guests' needs are well attended too. I will always recommend it.
