Bwindi Lodge overlooks Uganda’s incredible Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, home of the mountain gorillas.
Accommodations at the lodge consist of eight recently restyled bandas each named after one of the Bwindi gorillas. The bandas have been elegantly furnished with large four-poster beds and locally-inspired furniture. There are six double rooms and two twin rooms available. The bandas have en-suite eco-bathrooms with a double vanity, bush showers, plenty of hot and cold running water, and composting toilets. A Deluxe Banda was added in June 2019 with one more on the way. Each banda enjoys their own forest views.
At an altitude of between 3,500 and 8,500 feet, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park is regarded as one of the most biologically diverse forests in Africa. It is spread over a series of ridges and valleys that form the eastern edge of the Albertine Rift. The park is home to more than 300 mountain gorillas, half the world’s surviving population, and around 120 other mammal species. These include eleven primate types such as black and white colobus, red-tailed and blue monkey, and chimpanzee. Bwindi is also one of the principle birding destinations in Uganda with more than 350 bird species on record.
