Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge is an eco-lodge set in Uganda's Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and specialising in gorilla-trekking expeditions. Built and run on ecological principles, the lodge uses natural energy sources such as solar power and controls water consumption to reduce their environmental footprint.

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park has four habituated gorilla families that live in thick, damp tropical forest. Tracking them is quite challenging but the rewards are great. Home also to monkeys, chimpanzees and countless butterflies and forest birds, this pocket of primeval forest is one of the most biologically diverse areas on Earth and has been designated a World Heritage Site.


  • Beautiful views & location overlooking the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest
  • Incredible wildlife  - gorillas, monkeys & prolific birdlife
  • Unforgettable encounters with gorilla families
  • Guided nature walks & local community interaction
  • Interesting tea-picking tour

Traveller Reviews

  • We truly had an amazing time in Africa. The gorilla trekking was a highlight.

    Kathy Peters, November 2015
  • We just wanted to let you know that we are having a fantastic time so far. Our two gorilla treks were amazing, we got up so close and had some incredible photos. Everything has been great, the Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge is beautiful and the community visit was so interesting. All the guides and staff are so friendly and helpful.

  • Volcanoes lodges were amazing. In fact, I think the Volcanoes lodge was the best place I have ever had the pleasure of enjoying myself at. Every need and want is taken care of and the views are more than amazing, its like a little piece of heaven there. The treks were great as well.

"Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge offers each guest space, comfort, wonderful hospitality and some of the best views of the Impenetrable Forest from their beautiful eco-friendly bandas. Don’t be surprised if you happen upon gorillas at the lodge as they do visit on occasion over the year! Look out for the mist that forms along the ridge of the Impenetrable Forest, its a real-life ‘Gorillas in the Mist’ moment."
