Bwindi Backpackers Lodge
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 7, 2013

A backpackers Lodge with a lot of character. Newly opened in November 2012, I visited often to enjoy a drink and the view from the bar and stayed for a few nights with friends over Christmas 2012. The staff are wonderfully friendly, Seith, the owner, is an interesting man to get into conversation with, he has loads of ambition and plans for the place. A great place to go gorilla tracking from and the views over Bwindi Impenetrable Rainforest are phenomenal, the tiny nearby village of Nombe and the little Nombe pocket forest are real treasures. Don't miss a visit to them while here. Chameleons and gloriously coloured sunbirds are regulars in the grounds. I really hope to get back again someday.
