The people at Gorilla CloseUp Lodge make you feel at home. The staff was extremely hospital, they went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed and that our stay was perfect - which it was!!

The food was the best I had throughout my entire trip in East Africa so props to the Head Chef! The rooms are very cosy and everything is clean.

The lodge has an amazing view overlooking the jungle.

Highly recommend!!

(ps - this is the first time I take the time to write a review but this place definitely deserves it!)

We stayed at the lodge to view the gorillas in Uganda. We used Seith's arrangements for the permits, driver from Kigali and lodging which was very affordable. The lodge is a bit of a ways from the initial gate, but the view is very breathtaking. The staff is kind and tries to make guests happy. Be aware, as one would guess based on location, electricity and internet can be spotty. But you are there for the gorillas.

Room Tip: Get the Jungle Luxury upper room for a good view
