We had a lovely stay and the service was attentive and kind. The surroundings were surreal and our gorilla trek amazing. I would highly recommend a stay here. It was nice to walk in the community and shop for crafts from Ruth.

Perched on the top of the valley the views from the lodges and the dining area are superb. The rooms are excellent, the staff are very friendly and helpful and the food is excellent. Profits also go towards clean water projects in the area so a great cause.

It is owned and run by the local community and you can see how proud they are of it. The area can be very cold, but thick blankets and the...

Spent one night at Bakiga Lodge. Beautiful location where all rooms overlook a spectacular lush green valley. Lovely food, very welcoming staff, cosy beds with ensuite showers, even wifi in the middle of nowhere. And just a 3 min drive from the ranger station where you start the gorilla treks - perfect. Highly recommended, thank you Gina and colleagues!

The profits from Bakiga Lodge are used to build water tanks for the local community and it is a very authentic experience as you can really feel the connection to the local community. The food was delicious :) and the beds...
