Bwindi Lodge is a stunning eco-lodge with just 8 guest bandas. Guests can spend the day on the terrace, which juts out into the forest and hear the exotic sounds of primates and birds in the canopy. The walk to the river through regenerated bush we have carefully nurtured as a buffer zone is magical. It is a favorite haunt for the gorillas and they often sleep at the lodge!
The lodge is an hour’s flight from Entebbe, or a very long 8 hour plus drive from Kampala or six hours’ drive from Kigali.
