“Quaint Tent/Cabins at Jungle Edge”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2009

This is basic accomodation but clean and comfortable. You get tents with attached bathrooms. Five of them are right next to the jungle. We were told occasionally the gorillas came to visit in the middle of the night.

The places were clean and they supplied flashlights, candles and bug spray. Electricity ran from 7 PM to 7 AM. There were no electrical plugs in the room but the office could charge batteries for you.

Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner was served with two options for lunch and dinner. They could also pack a lunch for gorilla treking. Make certain to tell them no butter on the sandwiches.

Staff was friendly and attentive. Can't go wrong for the basics.

  • Liked — Being right next to the jungle
  • Disliked — Limited electricity meant the beer wasn't always cold.
  • Stayed December 2008

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2008

I recently stayed at the Buhoma Community Rest Camp which is situated right next to the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park Headquarters, so it is very convenient for gorilla trekking.

The bandas are built on the hillside overlooking the forest, and the grounds are lovely. The accommodation is either in bandas (little huts) or permanent tents, and some of these have an ensuite bathroom and toilet, and a balcony with a beautiful view of the forest. The accommodation is simple, clean and very comfortable. The staff are very friendly and the food was lovely.

This was one of my favourite places that I stayed on a 5 week trip. I enjoyed my stay here very much and would like to return for a week next time- it would be a great place to just relax and listen to the birds sing. Money earned from this camp goes back into the community to fund the local hospital, school and other projects, which is another aspect of this accommodation that I like.

  • Liked — the great location and view, great service
