We had a great 2 nights stay at Nkurino Bwindi Gorilla Lodge! Personal service, community engagement, great food and that little extra effort which gave us some really memorable days. We stayed in one of the nice private cottages. Had warm showers when we needed, just had to ask 5 min ahead. We trekked the Nkuringo gorilla group which was...

Nkuringo is a very friendly village, beautiful surroundings. Nkuringo Gorilla Camp is a good place to stay (very helpful staff) and explore the area. We walked 17 km to Buhoma (with the help of porters and a guide), the trail is not too difficult.

Great views of nearby volcanoes, tasty food, really beautiful cottages, many nice touches like complementary laundry, hot water bottles in bed, fire place already started by bedtime, massage service by Perry (highly recommended after a few days of mountain trekking), excellent service provided by every single team member. Pretty full bar as well. Did I mention proximity of silverback gorillas?

The lodge is well maintained and the rooms are cozy. The best thing about it is the location as it's a 7 minute walk to the Uganda Wildlife Authority office where you go to start the trek to find the Nkuringo Gorilla Group (definitely the best group to track as they are the most friendly and are not camera shy...

Lovely lodge to spend couple of nights. The staff was very friendly and took good care of us. The lodge is situated on the top of the hill, and view and the surroundings were very beautiful. Food was quite ok, but nothing very special. Probably the best lodge we stayed in our trip around Uganda national parks. We did gorilla...

I have lead mission teams, both large and small, to every area of Uganda, and this lodge ranks well above any place that we have stayed in all of Uganda. We have stayed here on 4 occasions and each experience gets better each time we visit. The owners have made great improvements to the facility over the last 5 years....

I have visited this lodge twice. The management as well as the food improved greatly in November. It went from a very good stay to an excellent stay. The Italian manager, Fab, went out of his way to make us comfortable and happy. I really liked this place the first time and loved it the second time. I highly recommend...

We had a wonderful stay here and it was a great location if you are going to go on a gorilla trek.

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
