Set amongst the Bwindi forest, this is an amazing location. The open air communal area, where fires are lit and meals served is simply magical. The rooms themselves are comfortable but not fancy - but be warned everything is damp as you are in a rain forest. The service was amazing - from changing our flat tyre to scrubbing our... More

Wow....what a magical place. From arrival were memorized by the view of the Forrest and the lodge. We stayed 2 nights and wanted to stay longer. The staff were very nice and the food was amazing!! The rooms were comfortable and clean It was a great location to head off to be gorilla trekking.

The staff (all male) couldn’t do enough for us though, to be fair, we were the only two people staying there for the two days we were there. The cottage was relatively small with only a curtain between the bedroom and the bathroom (so there were no secrets). There were no electrical outlets in the cottage but there was a... More

The main Lodge has a marvellous view of the forest. It's a birders paradise! A real find for those who love peace and quiet The rooms are clean, comfortable and well appointed for the forest view. Delightful, helpful staff Highly recommended.

Visited Engage lodge and the staff were very receptive right from the gate up to inside the lodge. Nice place to be since it is welcoming. Located right on the foot of the Forest with which makes it very cold especially at night. You actually in the forest itself. Don't miss it

The Enagi Lodge is relatively small with only 8 cottages but a pure delight! The rooms are large but there are no plugs for charging or hair dryers in the rooms but there is an adequate charging station in the main bar restaurant and deck area. The rooms have decks with views looking out at Bwindi Impenetrable Forest where the... More

The forest view from the communal area was so atmospheric abundant with birds - just beyond our dreams. We relaxed here after our gorilla trekking, enjoying complementary tea and coffee and the jovial company of the staff, who all had a genuine wish to please. But don't come hear if you need a hairdryer or to turn the tap on... More

The room was comfortable. It can get chilly at night so the staff warm the beds with hot water bottles. Private outside balcony. The steps to the rooms are well lit and the rooms are not difficult to access. Lovely cosy open lounge area with open fire and restaurant both with direct open views of the forest. Terrace with good... More

This is truly a lovely lodge and I would highly recommend this place as your base before and after your Gorilla trekking. The lodge overlooks the rain forest and is within walking distance to the village and craft shops. The food and facilities are excellent and certainly over and above what would expect when you are in the middle of... More
