“Conveniently located next to Bwindi Forest”
Reviewed October 7, 2009

As the first in the row of lodges that dot the main road leading to the park entrance, Engagi Lodge is still conveniently close to that entrance – but far enough to be exceptionally quiet at night. My wife and I spent only 2 nights here – and we were the only customers then. Some people may find it a bit spooky to sit alone in the lounge of the main building, surrounded by complete darkness – but we thought it was extremely quiet. Though the cottages are definitely not luxurious, they are well equipped, featuring everything you really need – even a soft sofa on your private veranda. Electricity is provided only during certain hours by a generator, as is common practice all over Uganda’s nature areas. Though there was only 1 lamp in our cottage, it produced an awful amount of light, probably comparable with 3 100W lamps, but I missed a writing desk to write my diary. I had to do this at one of the restaurant’s tables where there was much less light. The food here was the same like in so much Ugandan lodges: standard ‘international’ food, which means it is what everybody can eat but no-one really likes. It really is a pity curries aren’t more widely available in Uganda’s tourist lodges.
