spectacular view from the oper terrace of the dining room, spacious and clean cottages, excellent food friendly, helpful and hospitable staff. We had a wonderful stay in the Engagi lodge. Special thanks to Alfred!
One of several lodges along a road overlooking the rainforest. Pros - Nice views - Rainforest atmosphere - Close to the main gorilla tracking area (10 minutes by car) - Excellent service by the room attendant - Nice common area, with bar and fireplace Cons - Lousy food - Assistant manager who seems bored with his job The place could be much better with different cook and management...
+ (positive) . very close to gorilla tracking in Nkuringo . lobby/dining nice - (negative) . welcome: cool, we missed warmth . staff not interested, bored, they preferred their mobile phone . rooms in bungalows very small, prosaic, grubby, only 1 chair . balcony: seat pads dirty and old . none of the credit cards accepted, no shampoo, no hair dryer . WiFi and electric power charging station only in lobby... . dedicated manager is missing (we left this lodge ahead of scheduled, nobody was interested to know why!) —> . urgent to replace this management —> . I don‘t recommend this place at all!
We were made to feel very welcome here. A perfect place to rest after an energetic day with the Bwindi gorillas. The staff are very helpful, the food is very good and plentiful, the cabins are comfortable.They even cracked open the champagne for us on New Year's eve. Everything was pleasing. Highly recommended.
A friend and I stayed at this lodge in Bwindi during a gorilla and chimp safari and we highly recommend it. We had our own very comfortable cabin discreetly tucked into a hillside with views of the forest. The common area was built in traditional style, had a lovely dining area and bar with fires lit for the evenings. Service was fantastic, particularly for washing clothes after dusty days. Staff were very friendly and endlessly helpful. We were there on New Years Eve and were served complimentary champagne which was a lovely touch. This lodge is close to sector one of the Park when visiting gorillas and helps to support the local community.
