Part of my recent stay was as part of a small group and part of it was solo. I came to Bwindi to participate in two gorilla treks. This lodge is very close to the trek starting point, as well as to several other attractions - the Batya village, Ride for a Woman project and local shops. My room and...

We loved our stay at Mahogany Springs! Hot water was temperamental as with most places we stayed around Uganda's National parks. But, that is my only (and a very minor) complaint. The food was delicious with options varying from lamb and steaks to local fish and matoke. The staff was very courteous and friendly. Also, Mahogany Springs seemed very tied...

Mahogany Springs is a very friendly lodge set in close vicinity to the Impenetrable Forest and the Bwindi Mountain Gorillas. it is a perfect base for the gorilla trekking. The individual lodges are comfortable and well equipped with beautiful views across the valley. The staff cannot do enough to make you comfortable. Meal times are fun!

We really enjoyed our stay here, primarily for spending a day gorilla tracking. Good location, nice room (we were given the Honeymoon room) and very friendly and helpful staff. Food was very good. Lots of birdwatching from the restaurant decking or from our own room patio. Definitely recommended.

My two adult kids and I stayed here in this beautiful setting with a balcony where one both hears the outdoors and sees the outdoors. Unique sleeping quarters, nice hot showers and clean bathrooms, wonderful staff and good food. We took a tour of the Bwindi Forest, coffee growing, and banana beer making nearby. It was educational and insightful into...

The lodge is perfectly located looking directly at the hills at the edge of Bwundi National park, the setting is perfect for relaxing and reflecting. The staff, everyone from the front desk to the restaurant and house keeping are wonderful. They made us feel very welcome and their warmth was reflected in everything they did. We stayed in the Honeymoon...

Was part of a small Nat Hab trek group in Nov.2016. Our twin room was upgraded to the presidential suite so that the staff at Mahogany Springs were able to provide us with two keys for the room.

Dear Pinga, Thank you for taking the time to post your lovely review. When celebrating a birthday, Anniversary, Honeymoon or just life we always make a fuss at Mahogany Springs and ensure it is special. The pathways are worked on every month, given the Bwindi climate they need constant management so are always working on them! We are pleased your...

“The H.mooner lodge was closer to the stream where villagers cooled their feet. Didn't bother us but maybe not as private/quiet as others?”
