Volcanoes Bwindi is an eco-lodge that overlooks the forest canopy of Uganda's beautiful Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and specialises in gorilla-trekking expeditions. Built and run on sound ecological principles, the lodge uses natural energy sources such as solar power and controls water consumption to reduce its environmental footprint.

The Buhoma region of Impenetrable Forest has at least three habituated gorilla families that live in the thick, damp tropical undergrowth. 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.

When not out trekking through the forests of Bwindi on search for gorillas, enjoy the activities and facilities available at and from the lodge. Enjoy a tour of the tea plantation, take a stroll to the river below the lodge or head out on a hike on the Munyanga River trail or to a nearby waterfall. Spend some time at the spa for a rejuvenating treatment, followed by a local beverage from the Bwindi Bar.


  • Views of the forested Bwindi Impenetrable National Park
  • Incredible wildlife: gorillas, monkeys and prolific birdlife
  • Unforgettable encounters with gorilla families in World Heritage Site
  • Guided nature walks and local community interaction
  • Interesting tea-picking tour

'The eco-friendly bandas offer gorgeous views of the forest and you will want to put your feet up and take in the tranquillity. The lodge is often frequented by the gorillas and a visit to Bwindi Bar in the high street of the village (run by the Volcanoes Safaris Partnership Trust) is recommended if you would like to experience local cuisine.'

Standard Banda

Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge comprises eight thatched-roof bandas with en suite facilities. Each room has a private en-suite bathroom with hot and cold running water, a terrace overlooking panoramic vistas of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and a fireplace to take the chill out of the air in the evenings.

Deluxe Banda

The Deluxe Bandas offer added space and elegance, making them an ideal choice for honeymooners. From your sunny terrace, take in the breathtaking views of the park forests. Unwind in the spacious lounge area and savor a nightcap while a crackling fire keeps you warm. Between your days out tracking gorillas, find comfort and relaxation in the comfortable beds.


The camp has a natural, warm and welcoming air and your needs are looked after by carefully trained staff recruited from local communities. After a day's gorilla tracking you can have a well-deserved massage, buy a souvenir at the safari shop or enjoy an ice-cold drink as you swap stories around the bar.


At Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge fresh wholesome meals combining local cuisine and Western tastes are served in the dining room or on the veranda accompanied by dramatic views across the valley. And after a strenuous day of hiking through the rainforest, there are few things better than a refreshing drink enjoyed at the bar and lounge area while gazing out at the dense forest below.
