Buhoma Lodge

Discover 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. The lodge is less than five minutes walk from the start of the gorilla tracking point.

Buhoma Lodge offers 10 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 a hot shower. The lounge and bar area is an open yet cozy 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.
