I stayed for three nights at Buhoma Lodge and found it to be the perfect place from which to undertake the gorilla trek, being located within walking distance from where you start. The Chalets are tastefully appointed, clean, warm & comfortable and provide a grand view of the mountain you will be climbing. The lodge itself is intimate and inviting. The food is good without being brilliant. The service is excellent, and here is an example: Unfortunately for me I came down with a very bad case of the 'flu the day after my first and very successful trek, and I had to miss my second one. (No, I did not catch the 'flu from a gorilla. My guess is that I must have caught it on the 'plane.) The Lodge Manager himself took me to the nearest hospital and saw that I was thoroughly attended to. The room service provided for the rest of the day and the next was solicitous and very welcome, and I recovered sufficiently to face the long journey back to Entebbe.
