I recently spent 3 months in Africa and this was, by far, my most favorite place to stay. I had stayed in fancy resorts and tented camps that were all incredible, but none had that "I've come home" feel as this eco-friendly lodge. It is a warm and cozy, friendly place with beautiful views, great food, and a peacefulness I...

There was a fairly big group of us celebrating a birthday of our friend. The rooms were very nice, and the view was amazing from a balcony. We stayed here for two nights, and attended gorilla safaris. The staff was extremely friendly, which I would like to emphasize. Especially Laban and Hilary who were serving our breakfasts and dinners were...

Great place, friendly people who will help wherever they can! Beautiful view to the volcanoes if they are not covered in the mist. Temperatures can drop at night and you might freeze, but the employees will bring you a hot water-bottle before you go to sleep!

I have been here several times before, but this time I felt not at home any more. The spirit of late Robert is lost. And that I find really sorry!

Robert still lives in our heart and as Ugandan that runs the business we have worked hard to get where we are today. We...

Loved everything about this lodge. Staff were attentive, friendly and welcoming, food delicious and fresh, beautiful vistas, rooms large and comfortable. Slightly away from the village so it was very quiet. Dining area was spacious w/ a bar, with an outside porch for resting, reading or relaxing overlooking volcanoes and town. Based in a perfect community setting — walking distance...

Amazing room, the view from the hotel was absolutely amazing! The food was very good as well, and our diet was well catered for. The staff were very friendly and helpful as well. Only a couple of minutes away from our trek starting point. The hotel/lodge is highly recommended!

We stayed here for 3 nights while gorilla trekking. The cottage was nice, though basic, with bucket showers. We stayed in a private cottage versus the rooms. The bed was comfortable with a lot of pillows. The food was very good and the bread was some of the best we've ever had...we would go just for the bread. The staff...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located on the edge of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest; home to the world’s remaining Mountain Gorillas, Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge offers a unique style of accommodation and amenities whilst sharing the soothing tranquillity of a rainforest and warm personality Uganda is best known to give. The Lodge is perched on the Nteko ridge overlooking the Bwindi forest, the ridge provides a superb vantage across the Kashasha river Valley to the forested hill known as “Nkuringo” and a panoramic views of the majestic volcanoes of the Virunga chain and across the escarpment into the Albertine Rift Valley within the DRC Congo. We have a raft of quality accommodation possibilities at the Lodge as we strive to be an all Inclusive and not exclusive venue. The Location of the Lodge is too special to be selfish! ... more   less
