Bwindi Lodge

Overlooking the primeval Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Bwindi Lodge offers a truly unique jungle experience. Separated by nothing more than an idyllic stream, the gorillas themselves are frequent visitors here. This adventure lodge in Uganda boasts 8 bandas facing the forest canopy, each with a private terrace from which you can spot the wildlife jumping from tree to tree metres away. The restaurant and bar is on a raised wooden deck with a large terrace, conveniently looking over the forest, with steps leading down to a lovely river walk along the bottom of the valley. Guests are invited to partake in a soothing, complimentary massage in the onsite spa room. Exciting activities include self-guided river walks, forest and waterfall walks, and most importantly – gorilla trekking in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest!

Activities

Guests are invited to partake in a soothing, complimentary massage in the onsite spa room. Exciting activities include self-guided river walks, forest and waterfall walks, and most importantly – gorilla trekking in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest! Only a limited number of permits are available in each gorilla park. To protect gorillas from disease, no children under 15 or people with illnesses may go tracking. Trackers must be fit and in good health as tracking in thick forest at heights up to 3,000 metres traversing steep-sided mountains and ravines can be tough, arduous and wet. One hour is allowed with the gorillas, at a distance of at least 7 metres.
