We recently stayed at this incredible lodge with our group of eight people. The food was incredible, accommodations impeccable right down to a hot water bottle in your bed each night. The staff are world class and made us feel very welcome. They offer complimentary massages at the end of each day which was a great touch after trekking to...

Situated conveniently within the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Buhoma was an excellent choice to stay while gorilla trekking. We were greeted by Titus, who offered us a refreshing drink and sat with us to explain our stay at Buhoma. He set up wifi on our devices and told us well meals would be served. He also mentioned laundry service, dependent...

We have been volunteers for three years, working with Batwa in the Bwindi area. Over three years, we have frequently come to Buhoma lodge for its peace and quiet on Friday afternoons. Today, Christmas morning, we came for brunch, what has become an annual excursion for us. It is wonderful! Two kinds of cheese, cold cuts, heated sausage, granola and...

Rooms are like tree houses and it was like living in the jungle but in luxury. Service, staff and accommodation great. Dont be surprised to see lots of monkeys and bird life on the grounds. Easy walking distance to the main part of town with many local crafts for sale. Longer walk to the Ride for a woman charity organisation...

The lodge has been constructed in sympathy with its incredibly beautiful and natural surroundings. Each room is a cottage and therefore spacious. The food is beautifully prepared and presented. Free services include laundry and massages. The staff are really helpful and friendly too.

We really enjoyed our three nights here. We were travelling as two couples, coming to the area for the gorilla trekking. The location of the lodge for that is great, as it's inside the national park about a two minute walk to the gorilla trekking centre. Also close to the township in other direction. However, it's the other things about...

If accommodation in a place called Bwindi Impenetrable Forest can be run so efficiently, with friendly staff, great food, clean rooms and total flexibility why is that hotels in big cities all over the world seem to so often get these things wrong. I've read some criticism of the steep steps to the rooms - well, chances are if you're...

The purpose for our visit was to go Gorilla tracking through the inpenetrable forest and we would not have wanted to stay anywhere else. The staff made sure that every single detail was taken care of from cleaning your shoes after a long day trekking to ensuring a hot water bottle was in your bed on the cooler evenings along...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
One of only two lodges located within the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, Buhoma Lodge is a quality, intimate lodge with ten cottages along the hillside, situated adjacent to the forest a short distance from where gorilla tracking commences. Its peaceful location means that you may truly relax before and after your tracking experience, listening to the birds and primates of the forest. Guests can wake up to tea and coffee on their own private veranda with spectacular views of the morning mist rising off the canopy of Bwindi Forest. The cosy central lounge area with its open fire is the perfect place for guests to unwind after a hard day gorilla tracking. ... more   less
