Ok so this lodge has all the things what you would expect from a high end lodge in Africa - good service, friendly staff, quality food and comfortable accommodation.
What makes it 5* (and more) is a) the stunning location looking over the forest - so beautiful and peaceful it has to be seen to be believed and b) the reasonably high chance of gorillas coming in to the lodge itself. Whilst we stayed there a local family of gorillas came into the lodge for over 2 hours one afternoon. There were no other guests there (just myself and my mother) and so we were able to spend 2 hours observing them for free. Simply incredible and we got even closer than we did to the gorillas trekking in the park.
If I were to go Bwindi again I would definitely stay at Engagi.More
