Buhoma Lodge

Found on the edge of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, the home of the mountain gorilla, Buhoma Lodge is a top quality, intimate lodge. The outlook from the lodge delivers overwhelming views of the ancient forest that are nothing short of spectacular. Recently renovated the lodge is less than five minutes' walk from the start of the gorilla tracking point.

Buhoma Lodge offers 8 chalets, each one built from local materials. Each room features huge windows and a private veranda offering stunning views of the forest canopy and the Bwindi National Park. Inside the spacious rooms are comfortable beds and an en suite bathroom with hot shower (and a special treat for honeymooners).

The lounge and bar area is an open yet cosy area with a warm, homely fireplace in the evenings - being elevated, guests can enjoy uninterrupted views of the forests making you feel like you are part of the surroundings. Freshly prepared meals from local produce offer a balance of international and local cuisine. The lodge is largely solar powered with a central area available for recharging videos and cameras.

Lodging was amazing - Even though I am gluten free, I put on a good five pounds with their delicious 3 course meals! The staff at the lodges was friendly and professional, and the scenery was beautiful. Staying here was like staying in a treehouse - without climbing a tree.
