The Lodge

 

Nestled high in the hills, 7,000 ft above the world, Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge is where the jungle whispers secrets and the Virunga Mountains paint the horizon in emerald green. This designer lodge blends seamlessly into its rugged surroundings, offering a haven amidst the magic of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.

Our 18 rooms – nestled within 16 unique residences – are designed for comfort and a connection to nature. Choose from our spacious two-bedroom family villa, the luxurious Forest Suites with their sweeping views, the charming garden cottages, or the cozy Standard Garden Cottages. Each features a warm bedroom, a private bathroom, and a living space where a fireplace flickers golden light (except in the Standard rooms). But the true luxury lies outside, on your private veranda – an unmatched vantage point for soaking in the majesty of the landscape.

Sustainability is woven into the very heart of Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge. We let this African wonderland speak for itself – the breathtaking Bwindi Forest vistas from your villa, the Virunga Mountains rising proudly against the sky from your garden cottage. Rickety walkways and dramatic black volcano rock add a touch of wildness to this fresh, invigorating space.

Our newly finished main area crowns the property's highest point, offering 360-degree views that will leave you breathless. High ceilings, pale canvas furnishings, and massive wooden beams create a sense of awe-inspiring grandeur. Here, our talented chef serves up delicious meals infused with local flavors.

And for the ultimate gorilla adventure, the Nkuringo Sector trailhead – your gateway to unforgettable gorilla trekking – is just a 10-minute walk. Or, take a scenic 30-minute drive and reach the Rushaga Sector trailhead, where you can opt for the gorilla habituation experience – a chance to spend four precious hours observing a semi-habituated gorilla family.
