We stayed at Bakiga Lodge for two nights in June as part of a tour with Africa Adventure Safaris. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel 'most welcome' by the friendly staff and owners including Emi and George (who even took us to the warden's house to watch a World Cup game). The lodge has a beautiful... More

This is the best lodge we have ever been to. Firstly, it was set up to support a wonderful community project to build water banks and repair/improve spring taps in rural Uganda. The income from the lodge therefore goes right back to the people (unlike all the other lodges!!), including those in the village outside where the lodge is set!... More

Bakiga lodge was an unexpected pleasure on our trip to Rwanda and southwest Uganda. Simple, unpretentious , elegant and the closest we were to the local people. George and Emmy were utterly gracious and helpful. Probably the best prepared dinner we had - local very fresh fish and vegetables. The ridge top site is breathtaking and relaxing. You are immediately... More

I stayed at Bakiga Lodge in November 2013 and had a wonderful time. The cabin was fantastic, the staff incredibly welcoming (thanks, Wyclef!), and the food was excellent. The view was stunning and it was such a peaceful place to relax after tracking mountain gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. I would highly recommend it and hope I can return... More

My significant other and I found Bakiga Lodge to be a welcoming respite after our 10 hour drive from Kampala. We were greeted by the very courteous manager, George. He explained about the background of the Bakiga and what to expect during our stay. The 4 rooms were each stand alone structures made partly out of military type tent and... More

I stayed at Bakiga Lodge for 12 nights, and was impressed by the helpfulness and friendliness of the staff. Everything was clean and tidy, the food was good, staff attentive to individual requests. They were also very helpful and accommodating in assisting me with arranging excursions around Ruhija, including into the Bwindi National Park and further afield, with local guides... More

I only got to stay at Bakiga for one night, but I wish I could have stayed for more. It was the night before we went gorilla trekking and it was hands down the best place I stayed at in Uganda. We arrived late at night and within half an hour of arriving were told there was dinner waiting for... More

We stayed here with the intention of course of tracking the Gorilla's the following day. The location of the Lodge could not have been better, not just for the spectacular outlook and view but it was just 5 minutes from the meeting point where we would be briefed the next day about the Gorilla's. The lodge itself is basic and... More
