Our favorite place, we called it Summer Camp. Its a lovely property with great views and amazing food. Though its difficult to reach, probably the farthest lodge in town, you will be well rewarded with easy access to the best Gorilla family, the Nkuringo family. Though you need to be fit to get to them, the lodge is close to... More

The Lodge Is tough to get to( we took the 7 hour walk through the rainforest), but once you get there it is really worth it. Lovely staff, beautiful view across to the volcanoes and everything is well organised and welcoming. Would recommend it to anyone, especially those who will go gorilla tracking, as its ideally located to start the... More

Lodge is very well run & hires from the local village. Rooms are big, comfortable & clean. Food & service are over the top. The lodge seem to have a great working relationship with the staff at the National Park. The staff are willing to cater to your every need if you let them. I felt a bit weird with... More

My friend and I spent a week travelling through Uganda and Rwanda nad we stayed at several lovely places, but this one was not to be topped. While we had to drive ~2 over bumpy African roads to get there, the facilities - and particularly the staff - made it well worth the "African massage". Our room was lovely and... More

We stayed at this lodge for two nights while we trekked for gorillas and golden monkeys in Bwindi and Mgahinga parks, respectively. It is a truly wonderful place with amiable staff, excellent food and African tea, hot water bottles in the bed on cold nights, great views, a village to walk through by yourself on the way to a 360°...

We stayed for two nights in this lovely lodge high up in the mountains. The view is absolutely stunning. So are the Gorillas. It is a once in a life time experience to see this friendly creatures in their natural environment. Very friendly, helpful and cheerful staff. Delicious food. Highly recommendable!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located on the edge of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest; home to the world’s remaining Mountain Gorillas, Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge offers a unique style of accommodation and amenities whilst sharing the soothing tranquillity of a rainforest and warm personality Uganda is best known to give. The Lodge is perched on the Nteko ridge overlooking the Bwindi forest, the ridge provides a superb vantage across the Kashasha river Valley to the forested hill known as “Nkuringo” and a panoramic views of the majestic volcanoes of the Virunga chain and across the escarpment into the Albertine Rift Valley within the DRC Congo. We have a raft of quality accommodation possibilities at the Lodge as we strive to be an all Inclusive and not exclusive venue. The Location of the Lodge is too special to be selfish! ... more   less
