Located just to the south of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, the Nkuringo campsite is located on the top of a hill overlooking the village of Nkuringo with amazing views of the surrounding Bwindi forest and into DR Congo. There are several sleeping options to choose from. There are campsites to pitch your own tent as well as a bunkhouse with private rooms. I stayed in a lovely banda that had great views overlooking the countryside out the front door. The accommodation grounds are very clean and nicely maintained. I can’t say enough good things about the staff. Asigariyo, who runs the facilities, also served as my guide on a walking safari though the surrounding areas (http://www.nkuringowalkingsafaris.com/). He is extremely nice and informative, explaining all about the local wildlife and culture. He also identified every species of bird we encountered! Benson, the chef at the Nkuringo campsite, cooked delicious meals and even packed boxed lunches for my day trips to the surrounding areas. Looking back at my travels through Uganda, the time spent in Nkuringo produces my fondest memories. I highly recommend this accomodation to get off the beaten path and experience the local flavor of rural Uganda.
