There were beautiful views and so many pretty flowers on the property. The food was delicious! I enjoyed every meal. The staff was outstanding. I felt so welcomed and... More

This is a very nice property with well kept and organized grounds. The main building offers comfortable seating, nice views, electrical recharging facilities and bottomless coffee and tea. A surprisingly robust WiFi Internet connection is available in the main building as well (not in the rooms). The rooms are very clean individual units that are equipped with extremely comfortable beds... More

I recently stayed at the Gorilla Safari lodge during my gorilla trek and it was as beautiful a hotel as I’ve ever stayed in. The staff were lovely people and I felt completely safe in the warm confines of the lodge. The rooms were lovely and provided me with a wonderful nights sleep before my trek. It’s always nice when...

We stayed 2 nights at the lodge as part of a gorilla tracking excursion - the lodge is within a few minutes drive of the gorilla tracking reception area. The rooms were excellent and the views were spectacular. The staff went out of their way to make sure we had a great stay. We took the lodge up on their... More

Watching the gorillas a few meters away in the jungle is a life time experience. The Gorilla Travel Lodge is the right place to stage the visit. The staff is extremely attentive and ready to cater any needs. The bungalow units are nicely built on the sides of a lush valley. Each one has a nice sofa on the veranda;... More

I was very happy with this place, it is about 5mins drive from where you go to do the trek with the gorillas, beautiful location. The rooms are very well presented, simple, big and clean. Beds are very comfortable but we didn't get a double bed that we had booked, instead we just got 2 single beds, not very romantic!... More

I have mixed feelings on this lodge! If it was 1/3 of the price I would be raving about it! but at $300 its pretty basic in terms of facilities. The destination is stunning and location amazing right next to Bwindi. However the facility was well ok at best! The good bits bar the location is that the beds are... More

Spent a fantastic 3 nights with family of 5 (kids ages 21, 17,15). Arrived late and the owner rushed out to greet us warmly with hot towels and then quickly arranged dinner for us and our driver. Lodges were spacious and clean. No electrical outlets in the individual lodges but there was solar powered electricity and gadgets could be charged... More
