I can't say enough about the Bwindi Lodge. The setting is stunning and the lodge itself is beautiful, simple, elegant and perfectly in keeping with its surroundings. We heard and saw the Rushegura gorilla family from the moment of our arrival and then frequently for our too short stay. We did the gorilla trek in the park only to have the gorillas back at the lodge even before we arrived back ourselves! The food, the staff and everything about this lodge was magnificent. It is one of those places that can't be described in a way that does justice to the experience. Even pictures miss the beauty of this place. I can't recommend the place highly enough. You will not regret choosing the Bwindi Lodge.

- Overlooking the primeval Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge is the finest luxury lodge at Bwindi. With dramatic intense views of the forest canopy across a serene stream, it is one of Africa’s unique properties. The gorillas frequently come to relax in the verdant bush around the lodge! The lodge is perfectly located for a Uganda jungle gorilla tracking experience. The lodge boasts eight large bandas facing the forest. Each of the guest bandas has a sitting area, a terrace and an en-suite luxury shower room. The main living area has a central fireplace which acts as a focal point for guests to relax and discuss their gorilla tracking experience. A large terrace overlooking the forest is a great place to spot the monkeys and birds hidden in the foliage. ... more less
