Nteko Ridge Community Walk

Nteko Ridge Village Walk


Nkuringa Bwindi Gorilla Lodge sits on Nteko Ridge, surrounded by a vibrant native community village. Nteko Ridge Community Walk showcases the village cultures, people, colors, and some of the most captivating aerial scenes of the wide Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, the far backdrop of volcanic mountains and misty clouds over Nkuringo.

The walk is guided by community walking guides trained by our adventure brand, Nkuringo Walking Safaris. It starts at the lodge and takes about 3-4 hours to walk around the village and back.
