overview

Buhoma Lodge is one of the original camps in Uganda's Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, home of the mountain gorillas. The camp is located within the park and enjoys views over the forest canopy.

The camp has an intimate, homely atmosphere; during the cool evenings, you can sit by the fire in the lounge and chat about your day's adventures. Return to your room heated by hot coals and hot water bottles in your bed. This is a good base from which to trek into the ancient rainforest in search of the mountain gorillas or go chimpanzee trekking. Other less strenuous activities include scenic forest walks, birdwatching, and searching for smaller primates.

Traveller Reviews

  • Excellent setting in the middle of the Bwindi Forest. Excellent views from the dining room and the people were very friendly and helpful. Food also of very high quality.

  • Buhoma Lodge was also excellent in all ways. The location, staff, accommodations, and food were all first-class. Our room, up two flights of 77 steps, had a magnificent view of Bwindi Forest, and was very comfortable.

"I loved the elevated views from the cabins tucked away in the hillside. The hot water bottle and bath awaiting me after a hard day trekking made the stay!"
