I was strongly recommended this lodge by a tour operator I used for my trip friendsofafricatours@gmail.com +256772545283 Shaq. Soon to be named Hollywood by me as he was respected and well known everywhere. Once I checked in I knew the decision was correct. Staff are absolutely first class. Greeted with a warm wash cloth and glass of fresh juice was... More

My only regret about this place is not staying another night. Service, food and the rooms were excellent. I have visited bwindi before and stayed at some other nearby camps but this one is the only place which has plug points in the rooms (a big plus as i hate leaving my phone to charge in public), also hairdryers, and...

We stayed here for two nights while visiting Bwindi for Gorilla trekking. We enjoyed our stay here for the most part. Our cottage was pretty and large. It was very clean and the beds were comfortable. The shower worked well and hot water was consistent. General areas of the hotel were nice also and we enjoyed just hanging out there... More

As we arrived, we were welcomed with a smile, a glass of Juice, they offered us some seats, to relax and to feel at home. We were given a de-breif. We had a fantastic time while living at the Mahogany springs.

We agree with all the positive comments. One reviewer disliked the food. ..we thought it excellent given the remote location. The staff are delightful. Services at 'no extra charge' like boot cleaning and a tour of the gardens need a small tip. Overall....book it. We booked through Africatravelresource.com

The food was excellent and the accommodations were very nice. We had WIFI in the main building and never had any issues with electricity or water. An overall... More

Staff here was absolutely amazing! They really took care of us like family. Saw a family of gorillas on our first evening from the lodge moving across a field. Wifi was good. Both of our treks were fantastic and pretty easy. Wish we had a couple more days to explore the area. They made us a cake for our anniversary... More

I spent 5 nights at Mahogany Springs (13th - 18th May 2014). I stayed there with my girlfriend, with the sole focus of photographing gorillas in Bwindi. We completed 4 gorilla treks in a row which was tough but so rewarding. We hoped to see gorillas and hoped for comfortable accommodation. What we got was amazing gorilla encounters and the... More

My stay at Mahogany Springs was like nothing I have ever experienced before. The lodge is situated in the Biwindi mountains and overlooks a beautiful scene of greenery, mountains, a multicoloured sky and some curious gorillas if you're lucky! Upon arrival I was greeted with warm welcomes and freshly squeezed passion fruit juice from the gardens which quickly became my... More
