We stayed here for two nights and i could have stayed much longer. The 20kl road that leads to the lodge is narrow and bumpy but very much worth it, if you have a fear of heights i suggest you sleep for this part of the journey!!!! When we arrived the staff were very friendly, offering us a drink and taking our bags to our rooms for us. I really cannot fault the staff here, nothing was too much trouble for them and our wish was there comand. The food was very good as was the service. The rooms were just delightful, ours was a twin room with a sitting area and fireplace at one end, bathrroom at the other end with a lovely big bath and shower head in, just the job after a long treck in the forest. The beds were comfortable but did not have mozzie nets over, this was not a problem as the temperature at that altitude was not conducive to mozzies, we even had a hot water bottle put into our beds as the nights were quite chilly. The balcony had a very comfortable sofa type seating, this was wonderful to sit on and look out onto the views which were awesome "Gorilla's In The Mist" come to mind. The lodge is very close to the gorilla registration area but not necessarily close to your starting point.
