Immerse yourself in nature at Turaco Treetops Lodge, a luxury lodge constructed in the lush rainforest neighbouring Uganda’s Kibale Forest National Park. Boasting unmatched and unobstructed views of the snow-capped Rwenzori Mountains and resident primates, including Bush Babies and the Black and White Colobus Monkeys, there is not better place to experience nature.

The gentle calls of the Great Blue Turaco bird coupled with the lush greenery of the forest induce a sense of calm and tranquillity. The simple, rustic design and contemporary décor of the luxury forest-view cottage, as well its secluded location, further enhance this state of serenity. You’ll walk away from Turaco feeling refreshed and renewed.

Turaco’s location sets a precedent for wonderful chimpanzee encounters, with a 90% success rate of seeing the primate up close in Kibale Forest National Park. Explore the rainforest on foot or venture on a birding tour to spot some of the 375 species residing in the area. Get down and dirty during a swamp walk through the Bigodi Wetlands Sanctuary, or marvel at the volcanic activity-induced crater lakes via hiking or mountain biking.

Luxury Forest Cottage

Constructed on stilts and stone columns, Turaco’s 8 luxury forest cottages are constructed in secluded locations within the forestland, hidden between the Kibale Forest’s treetops. Simple in structure and rustic in design, the upscale cottages resemble that of a children’s treehouse – a treehouse adorned with stylish, comfortable furnishings and contemporary décor.

You won’t be spending much time in the room, as the wooden deck offers beautiful forest views. Grab a cold drink or a good book, recline on the plush sun lounger and watch as the Great Blue Turaco or Black and White Colobus Monkey play in the greenery.


Evening’s are best spent at the lodge’s main building, where you can grab a cold drink at the bar and enjoy it either in the ground-level lounge area, where the wood-burning fireplace keeps the evening chill at bay, or while watching the sun set behind Mount Stanley from the first-floor lounge, an elevated cosy room boasting incredible views of the surrounding landscape.

If you’re travelling with children, they’ll be eager to jump into the 5x10 meter pool, get active on the playground or be entertained by the numerous activities offered in the kids’ room.


Turaco’s onsite restaurant offers fresh and delectable meals, served inside or on the outside terrace, coupled with the most breath-taking views – food seems to be so much tastier when you’re gazing at an endless canopy of trees with the snow-capped Rwenzori Mountains in the distance!
