A friend and I stayed at Mahogany Springs for 3 nights when we were doing 2 gorilla treks in Buhoma/Bwindi (which is a lovely short drive away from the hotel). Everything about our stay was exceptional. On arrival after a transfer from Kihihi airstrip, we were greeted with a hot towel and a juice. After the briefing we were taken...

This lodge was a little disappointing after my previous lodges. However, you only really stay here for the gorilla tracking since it's only a 5 mins journey in the morning. The rooms were great but I think they could have done much more with the communal area as it feels a bit basic. I must say though, it was the...

Service was wonderful particularly David who was an absolute pleasure to deal with and so helpful even after I left to go to another place (Ride 4 A Woman - do go there too) and popped back to check up on travel plans. Nothing is too much trouble. Lovely welcome with hot towels and juice. Rooms are stunning and views...

From the moment we touched down at Kihihi airstrip and met our driver Dominic the level of care and attention provided by the team at Mahogany springs was second to none. The setting of the camp is idyllic and the rooms luxurious, yet still in keeping with the surrounding valley – making you feel always like a welcome guest, not...

From arrival drinks and welcome to hugs and good-byes; this was the most delightful "home away from home for our crew of 7. The staff was always at your beckoned call, the food delicious and the view was warm and refreshing. We were escorted to a room of adventure and romance and loved watching the monkeys play from our balcony...

We just returned from 3 days at Mahogany Springs and cannot say enough good things about the experience. From Jotham, the general manager, to Abraham and Amon, our daily lead contacts, everyone at Mahogany Springs was warm and welcoming. Our hut was spacious, clean and comfortable. After each of our two gorilla treks the staff thoroughly cleaned our boots and...

Very friendly, knowledgeable, and professional staff. Great cottages with all the amenities. A wonderful deck with sweeping views, all within walking distance of Bwindi. The chef will send you off trekking with a delicious box lunch. 5 star African Hospitality.

We stayed here for 3 nights while trekking out of Buhoma. This was our favorite lodging on our trip. The rooms were open and comfortable. We always had a hot water and electricity in the room. To be picky, we had 2 queen size beds but would have preferred one king bed...I'm not sure the bed layout of other rooms....

The lodge has an unprepossessing entrance and is a beautifully sited overlooking the gorge. The well built lodge has maybe 8 or so spacious separate solid ensuite bungalows all with lovely views and sitting terraces looking across the valley's steep hillsides and gorge. They are spacious, comfortable, have good privacy and very quiet. This is the nicest and best lodging...

Part of my recent stay was as part of a small group and part of it was solo. I came to Bwindi to participate in two gorilla treks. This lodge is very close to the trek starting point, as well as to several other attractions - the Batya village, Ride for a Woman project and local shops. My room and...
