My second visit to Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge was even better than the first (and the first was amazing)! The staff are incredibly welcoming, the lodge and villas are gorgeous, and the setting is unmatched. Can’t recommend it more highly - if you are coming to Bwindi to see gorillas, this is the place to stay.
In early January 2022, we were delighted to find Uganda a surprising safe haven from pandemic, crowds, and global chaos. Instead, it was quite the opposite. Specifically this lodge was most welcoming and peaceful -- far beyond our expectations. With stunning views, charming suite (complete with wood-burning fireplace, walk-in shower, lovely decor + hot water bottle in bed), we were impressed with all staff, eco-friendly lodge amenities, and mountain top location. The was staff extremely friendly serving good food (veggies from their garden) & providing a relaxing atmosphere. We felt like we didn't want to leave. We appreciated that this lodge is locally owned, strives to be extremely eco-friendly while maintaining high standards in a luxury experience. Thank you Jude, the manager who started with the lodge from a tent to what it is today, Rosemary for your massage & housekeeping excellence and entire staff for your hospitality! We highly recommend traveling now. There was only 1 other couple at this lovely lodge while we were there for our gorilla trek. Great time to travel!…
What a nice lovely place! Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge. Me and my wife we had an offer for 2 nights we really enjoyed our stay there. Staff is friendly, welcoming.Food is tasty and delicious, place is in a good location with best views of the forest. Edward waiter and Erasmus housekeeper made our stay the best. Erasmus would make sure our room is clean all the time. We recommend NBGL we will come back soon.
The new dining area is marvel and fine piece of art. Combining modern and rustic furniture gives it an authentic feel. It was lovely to sip on a cup of coffee as we enjoyed the views of the volcanoes. Rosemary was an excellent butler and I very much liked her personalized touch in our room. The food is filling and very delicious... and the portions were perfect.
Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge is already a home to me, but there was something different about this time. I had last visited in June last year, so I hadn't yet gotten a chance to see for myself how astonishing both the dining and Forest Suites looked. I gaped as I marveled at how much work had gone into the enhancement of this property. Cudos to Madam Lydia Nandudu. Everyone must visit. Their food menu is rich and the bar selection does not disappoint, their barrister Isaac will make you a cocktail you'll never forget! My bed was comfortable and pre-warmed with 2 hot water bottles every time I was ready to get some shut-eye. I truly valued how Wesley and Sunday went out of their way for us each time we sat down for a meal. Can't wait to return!
Last year we spent a night at the Nkurunga Lodge. The location is situated such that the hotel has both views of the Virunga volcano mountain range on one side of the property and the Bwindi Forest on the other side. The lodge also engages in activities that benefit the local population - enhance their appreciation of the need to protect the environment and tourism. The rooms are spacious and very well decorated. We particularly liked the fire place inside our room as the temperatures drop quite a bit at night due to the high elevation. We also found the entire staff to be courteous and friendly.
We visited Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge in March 2022. This lodge is exceptional and the natural beauty surrounding it stunning. From the moment we arrived and were greeted by the staff, management and Rosemary with her hand massage, until the time we left and every moment in between was nothing short of extraordinary. The lodge and our room were adorned with local culture and decorations. The food excellent and delicious. The room was spacious, clean and beyond beautiful. The spectacular views and accommodations were topped only by the staff. There were loads of unexpected moments, from Rosemary’s daily floral art on our beds, hand written nightly notes, nightly fires and bed warmers nestled in our beds at night. Wesley was our waiter, attendant and friend. He was the ultimate professional, in tune with our every need, anticipatory and always adorned with his contagious smile. I cannot think of one thing that would have made our stay any better. This place is absolute perfection. I would highly recommend this lodge if you are ever staying in Bwindi.…
Hard to put into words our stay at Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge. I visited with my wife for our honeymoon in February 2022. The lodge sits on the cliffside overlooking the rainforest. The views are simply majestic. The food is second to none, with three-course Michelin-level meals. The rooms and grounds are pristine, incredibly comfortable, and perfectly decorated. And yet the highlight of Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge is its exceptional staff, who tend to every one of your needs before you even know you needed it! Special thanks to Lydia, Jude, Wesley, and Rosemary. Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge will forever hold a special place in our hearts. It is simply paradise.
My family spent three days at the Nkuringo lodge and I cannot speak more highly. From the spectacular views, to the over the top service, to the excellent food. I don't think I have ever had a better experiece at a hotel/lodge before. I cannot speak highly enough of the place.
