A series of lovely lodges set on stilts into the hillside gardens with lovely views and very comfortably furnished. Excellent service, good food and just a few yards from the Gorilla Safari trailhead. Clean, secure and peaceful. Highly recommended.

Despite the coldness experienced during the night, the bed linen was very comfortable and warm enough to keep me warm throughout the night. The professional staff were always at hand to ensure that I was comfortable. There was a warm shower and the food was very good as well. One thing that struck me was the high level of neatness...

This lodge has an amazing view of the mountain terrain and some local villages. The rooms felt like a hotel, with the most comfortable beds. Great bathroom. The chef cooked the most delicious breakfast, lunches, and dinner. Staff was very friendly and fun.

Impeccable service and a 100 metres from the gorilla guides centre. The staff looked after our every needs and were trained to the highest of western standards. We were made to feel very much at home and they took real interest in our sightings. We would recommend this to anyone looking for privacy and luxury.

This is a very nice property with well kept and organized grounds. The main building offers comfortable seating, nice views, electrical recharging facilities and bottomless coffee and tea. A surprisingly robust WiFi Internet connection is available in the main building as well (not in the rooms). The rooms are very clean individual units that are equipped with extremely comfortable beds... More
