Nearby the Munyanga River, Mahogany Springs overlooks the immense and beautiful Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. This forest lodge provides simple yet stylish accommodation, which is ideal as a base for gorilla trekking. Gorillas aren't the only species in the area however as there is a phenomenal number of birdlife at Bwindi, with more bird species per square kilometre than anywhere else in the world. The lodge itself is set on an open stretch of land and has been built using locally sourced natural materials, which provides the property with an edge of authenticity and a minimalistic flair.
The lodge is ideally situated near the beginning of the gorilla trekking and birding routes and excursions on offer to guests. The lodge's main area is ideal for al fresco dining, with a quaint wraparound patio, however whether this is possible is largely dependent on the weather. Guests can expect 8 stone and thatch suites, all of which provide large en suite bathrooms and a balcony terrace that looks out upon the Bwindi treetops, affording guests excellent forest views. There is also a presidential suite on offer, which provides views of the river. In all rooms there are power sockets and beds are protected from unwanted guests by mosquito nets which wrap around the entire bed.
1 hour 40 minute flight by light aircraft to reach Bwindi, followed by a road transfer to the lodge. Full day's drive from Entebbe or Kampala.
Gorilla trekking, nature walks, bird watching, cultural interaction with the Batwa Pygmy tribe and tree planting.
