Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Uganda
Set in the UNESCO-listed Impenetrable Forest, Bwindi Lodge looks out over verdant tea gardens and lush jungle. A pioneer in gorilla tracking in this region, this luxury lodge is the perfect base from which to have once-in-a-lifetime primate encounters in stunning tropical surroundings.
Why We Love It
Go for a drink in quaint Bwindi Bar on Buhoma’s main street for stunning views and an immersion into the local culture. The bar offers hospitality training for local young people, and you can try some Ugandan cuisine or just watch the village hustle and bustle with a coffee.
Take a swim in the river on the lodge grounds with the monkeys watching you from the branches above.
In the north of Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Bwindi Lodge is only a ten minute walk from the trailheads leading to incredible gorilla encounters. A short walk from Buhoma Village, it offers cultural experiences as well as the incredible wildlife sightings that most travel here for.
The lodge’s luxurious bandas have double doors that open out onto private decks. From here you have views of the forest ideal for spotting Uganda’s over 150 unique bird species in this ornithological paradise.
The use of organic materials has helped blend the lodge in with its lush surroundings. The room’s exposed stone fireplaces and high, palm front ceilings combine with the communal spaces’ wood furnishings and textiles to create a warm, rustic ambiance throughout.
WHAT MAKES THIS HOTEL UNIQUE?
This pioneering lodge was one of the very first to open in the country to facilitate gorilla encounters. Over those twenty years, it developed from being a relatively bare-bones outpost to a wonderful luxury lodge. Its long experience sets it apart and you can be entirely secure in the knowledge that a stay at Bwindi offers you the very best opportunities in the national park.
You’ll head out on incredible hikes, tracking the gorillas through the strikingly biodiverse forests. The effort melts away as you witness the gorillas socializing and being at ease in their natural habitat.
