The lodge was in a beautiful setting and very nicely done, it had every commodity, kitchen was excellent and food was delicious (they even prepared for us special vegetarian lunch boxes for our trekkings!), they also had plenty of extra services and activities for free (i.e. shoe-cleaning after trekking, 30 min feet massage, etc) but most importantly the best was its team and staff who made the experience even more special. Mainly, Rhoda, the director who was excellent and very kind and our friend Collins, who always helped us with everything.

Amazing place with an amazing team looking after you. Nothing is too much trouble. The lodges are large and comfortable with everything you need. You feel safe, warm and clean. We had the nearest lodge which possibly had the benefit of good wifi pick up from the main building but possibly the only one without a view over the far rainforest, but closeness to the main building outweighed any view issue. The food is excellent. Full English breakfasts fruits, cereals etc. Lunch and dinner are exceptionally good. It's almost a pain to have a good packed lunch for the gorrilla hikes as you miss out on great food. The staff are so friendly and helpful. The beer is great and you must check out the local gin, excellent! The lodge is very close to the Briefing Centre for the gorrilla hikes and the village is 5 minutes down the road. You must visit. Friendly sales technique. Go in as many shops as you can. Some are supporting various projects like orphanages or abused women etc. If you want that special experience visiting the gorrillas made even better, stay here, you will not be disappointed. Thank you to Laura and the team.

Buhoma lodge and trekking with the gorillas was the highlight of our trip. There are only two lodges actually inside the national park, and Buhoma is one of them. They have thought of everything. Gear to help you on your trek (and masage upon return), an evening sherry, gloriously spacious and beautiful rooms with everything thought of, laundry services, and genuinely some of the best food I have eaten in a while. We spent two glorious nights there, and I would have happily stayed longer. Rhoda and her team were fully committed to us having a perfect stay, and we felt it. Thank you Buhoma! Hope to see you again.

Would highly recommend this lodge. Exceeded our expectations. Rhoda the manager and her wider team were simply brilliant. Friendly, efficient and thought of everything. The accommodation is arranged over a succession of timber cabins accessed via stairs and walkways. They are spacious and fun, not luxurious but certainly everything you could need for a few nights. We only stayed two night to do our Gorilla trek and visit the local area but the food was excellent and we would certainly highly recommend to anyone thinking of visiting this area.

Buhoma Lodge was simply exceptional. We traveled to Bwindi to trek with gorillas, and our experience at the lodge made that unforgettable time even more special. The beautifully furnished villas are set into a wooded hillside with spectacular views of the forest. They are secluded in comfortable privacy but in close proximity to the cozy shared lounge and dining areas. The service was friendly yet intimate, personalized in a really great way. We felt welcome and pampered, but they never went over the top. We felt they took a sincere interest in our enjoyment. My husband celebrated a birthday at the lodge where he was feted with a beautiful cake and a special song performed by the team. One night at dinner the power went out but in no time at all candles were lit and the meal went off without a hitch. We were able to borrow gaiters and rain gear for our gorilla trek, which began within walking distance of the lodge. We also enjoyed the complimentary massage afterward. Big thanks to Frank, Lavan, Collins and all who made Buhoma Lodge our favorite stop on a two-week African adventure!
