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.

I had two spectacular nights at this over the top Nkuringo Gorilla Lodge just last week! The staff was beyond helpful and welcoming to make me feel I was the one and only guest.

The staff were wonderful (especially Agitha). The location was fantastic as the entrance to the gorilla trekking was within walking distance through a great village. The room was good (not the best), but the rest of the property made up for it including the food, other amenities and service. Only issue is that they charge above market rates for transport,...

We booked three nights at the gorilla lodge for our honeymoon. We received amazing service and they even upgraded our room from a $200 to a $700 room, free of charge, because there were not many guests at the time we stayed.

Spectacular view of the surroundings: one side Bwindi NP and the other Virunga volcanoes in the horizon. Wonderful touch for the interior design so warm that gives a sensation of being hosted at somebody's house rather than a cold tourist accommodation. Great food feels like cooked with passion and love rather than hands and fire.

I've stayed here twice and thoroughly enjoyed both times. I can't say enough good things about the meals as I loved every one. The rooms are beautiful and evening turn down service makes it feel that much more high class. The staff are exceedingly helpful (verging on excess) and the grounds are peaceful with stunning views.

Just spent a weekend at Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge, the experience has been excellent. Food & accomodation are superb. I had the chance to meet Lydia, the Managing Director, and she became a travel's partner. I went to see the Gorillas and, as a single traveler, I ended up having a friend's weekend.

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
