Mahogany Springs Safari Lodge

Discover Mahogany Springs Safari Lodge

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 kilometer 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 too. The lodge's main area is ideal for al fresco dining, with a quaint wraparound patio. There are 12 stone and thatch suites, all of which provide large en suite bathrooms and a balcony terrace that looks out upon the Bwindi treetops, affording excellent forest views. Included are a family suite and a honeymoon suite.
