Bwindi lodge is an amazing place to go gorilla trekking from. The lodge is located right on the border with the forest which means that the Bwindi forest is your view every morning when you wake up.
The staff are truly incredible. When we arrived, we had lost our luggage and one of the staff actually lent my husband a pair of his own pants to use for gorilla trekking. You are treated with such warmth with every exchange with the staff. They even give you a free massage after your trek.
The hotel cares about the environment which is evident through many things such as solar power. My husband's favourite touch was the hot water bottle in his bed at night. Bwindi isn't particularly cold for us Canadians but the temperature can require a sweater at night.
