We were very impressed by our two night stay here. The individual cottages look natural in the forest setting. Our room had a large bedroom, beautiful large living room with a nightly lit log fire, plus a good size bathroom. The wide balcony had stunning views of the high hilly Impenetrable Forest. The food was excellent and well presented in...

The staff are smiling and friendly, the food is gourmet and creative, the bar area is comfortable and sociable, the rooms are clean and stylish and they pull out all the...

The lodge is my opinion the best option to use as a very comfortable base when visiting the Uganda Mountain Gorillas. It is situated within close walking distance of the Bwindi National Park HQ, which is used as the meeting point for the guided gorilla tracking experience. The staff at the lodge, under the guidance and direction of Lodge Manager...

We stayed at Buhoma Lodge for two nights during a trip to go Gorilla trekking - and we were so glad we did! The room was lovely and comfortable. The staff was attentive and friendly, going out of their way to make sure our visit was a good one. The food was delicious!

I spent two nights at the Buhoma Gorilla lodge recently. I found the lodge staff to be very helpful, they went out of their way to be friendly, and the food was fantastic. The fire place in the main lodge is very interesting – probably the best I have ever sat around. Tip for other travellers – If you do...

A slice of luxury at the doorstep of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Five star food and accommodation. Staff is super friendly and helpful. Don't miss a visit to Bwindi Community Hospital, one of rural Uganda's finest right near by.

We stayed only one night due to some unexpected changes in our travel schedule. The staff is friendly and the rooms were neat and clean. This is also an eco friendly lodge, but they have a charging station in the main restaurant area for your electronic devices. The food was good and always served with a smile. We were offered...

This place is great. Located just inside the nature reserve, lodges on stilts for extra views. Service is really good, hot water bottles are provided if nights are cool. While we were there, a guest celebrated her birthday, so staff sang and danced and brought a cake. Mind out for thieving monkeys if you want your banana in peace :-)

This is a quality establishment - best we stayed at in Uganda. The rooms are fantastic, food excellent and service outstanding. The manager, Nelson, sets the right tone. He is professional and attentive without being intrusive. We would love to stay again.

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
