“very relaxing, great location”
Reviewed 8 December 2008

I recently stayed at the Buhoma Community Rest Camp which is situated right next to the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park Headquarters, so it is very convenient for gorilla trekking.

The bandas are built on the hillside overlooking the forest, and the grounds are lovely. The accommodation is either in bandas (little huts) or permanent tents, and some of these have an ensuite bathroom and toilet, and a balcony with a beautiful view of the forest. The accommodation is simple, clean and very comfortable. The staff are very friendly and the food was lovely.

This was one of my favourite places that I stayed on a 5 week trip. I enjoyed my stay here very much and would like to return for a week next time- it would be a great place to just relax and listen to the birds sing. Money earned from this camp goes back into the community to fund the local hospital, school and other projects, which is another aspect of this accommodation that I like.
