Bwindi Lodge is adjacent to the small village of Bwindi on the edge of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in the far west of Uganda. The lodge is set on a hillside above a river, overlooking lush rainforest opposite. It is the perfect base for visits to the national park and as a starting point for gorilla tracking.
Accommodation & Facilities
Bwindi Lodge has ten large and beautifully constructed en-suite thatched bandas with private verandahs giving wonderful views of the forest. Two deluxe rooms have more space and a sitting room. The lovely bar and the new dining room look across to the forested hillside on the opposite bank, and the library and spa offer great views as well.
Wildlife & Activities
More than half the world’s wild mountain gorilla population is resident in Bwindi, and it is possible to visit a number of habituated family groups under the national park’s regulated tracking programme. Although this is the reason most guests come to Bwindi the park is home to 93 mammal species, including 11 types of primate, as well as almost 350 bird species. These animals and birds can be viewed on nature walks alongside a knowledgeable national park guide. A visit to Bwindi Bar and the village is also a highlight of a stay here.
