We drove approximately 5 hours from Kyambura to Bwindi. Again, we would recommend driving instead of flying because watching the scenery change from savannah to mountains is magnificent! Thanks to our great driver/guide; Vicent we were able to see the tree climbing lions enroute! We suffered a flat tire but it gave us the opportunity to spend some time in... More

What a surprise! Based on the photos on this site, I truly thought this would be the least nice place on our trip. I couldn't have been more wrong. The view of the mountains was awesome - knowing there are gorillas in there somewhere. The room and staff were perfect. Attention is paid to every detail and it is very... More

Experienced the most fantastic gorilla tracking experience whilst at this lodge so our opinion may be clouded by the most amazing experience of our travelling lives. We had an wonderful time helped greatly by the fantastic staff, in particular Angela and Alex. Our cottage was beautifully maintained and had the most amazing views of the forest. House keeping was superb.... More

I particularly enjoyed the hot water bottle left in the beds! No pool or hot tub; activities here involved a village walk and massage but another amenity within the hotel would be nice for... More

I work for a safari company and was in Bwindi doing a gorilla trek but also I stayed at 3 different lodges so I could have firsthand information for my clients. I really enjoyed staying at Bwindi Lodge! The room felt like it was right out in the middle of a jungle and, in fact, there were even monkeys that... More

We stayed here for two nights and had a wonderful time. The property is beautiful, the food is decent, and the service is truly excellent. We were very well taken care of. You should be aware that while this lodge is probably one of the most upscale accomodations in the area, it is still a lodge. Volcanoes prides itself on... More

Bwindi Lodge is one of the lodges close to Bwindi national park. It is very near to the point where Gorilla tracking begins. Yet it is unique due to the simple and beautiful interior. Room are tidy and very well kept, staff is super friendly and willing to asset at any time. The location compared to near-by lodges is just... More
