Very close to the park gates so depending which troop you go to see this is great , getting up at 7 rather than 5 .The final track up to the lodge is 27km on a single track mud road clinging to the mountain , best done by daylight I would say .
The room no 9 we stayed in was amazing , views straight into the forest .Great quality linen , full bath and the legendary hot water bottle . No power outlet in the room .
Every member of your party will need a torch to walk to the room at night .The paths are uneven and poorly lit .
The manager Jude was very friendly and nothing seemed to be too much trouble .
The food really let this place down .So much fresh great produce in this farming area , but they did not do it any justice .
The second night they had a little light music on and lit the fire ( at our request ) this really improved the atmosphere .
Everyone saw gorillas , some people walked for half an hour others for 5 hours to see them .You will long trousers , you really are crawling through the vegetation .
