My stay in Nkuringo was one of the most memorable of my life, been an expat for over 14 yrs, lived across several continents and travelled a great deal, but Nkuringo truly stood out as an amazing experience from start to finish. The camp is extremely peaceful, a great escape from the city life to reconnect with nature - and wow - what beautiful nature indeed, like heaven painted its soul onto canvas and the result was Nkuringo. The staff was warm and friendly and before I left I knew all of them so well that parting was more like leaving family behind! The campsite is impeccably maintained, extremely clean, the dining area at long tables is a great place to meet other couples, groups, or solo travelers. The gorilla tracking was incredible - our group was incredibly lucky and we saw them outside of the forest in the clearing, so it made for great photography, it was a truly special and amazing experience I will never forget. There is so much more on offer than the gorillas however, I would recommend if you have the time to spend several days at this campsite, if you are looking for a "retreat" whether for writing or for peaceful reflection, or great hiking, then stay even longer... There are great nature walks, down into the forests to find hidden gorgeous waterfalls, volcanoes... Even the walk to camp itself was amazing, we came in by rowboat and then I decided to hike the rest of the way. As a solo female traveller the place was wonderful and I would go back in an instant, and hope someday soon I will be able to. Thanks so much to all of the staff at Nkuringo for this wonderful stay and your immensely kind hospitality, much love to all of you.
