My stay at Nkuringo Gorilla Camp was sensational. From the initial contact via emails to the final farewell, the service was exceptional. The staff were so incredibly friendly and helpful. The camp is gorgeous, with the most stunning views over the valley. Rob's help and advice was wonderful. It is rare to find someone in Africa who is so unconditionally...

OMG!! Words fail me when i try to describe my stay at Nkuringo gorilla camp. it was a long drive up and down the hills; not on the best of roads and the heavy down pour wasn't helping much, however, all this was forgotten once i got to the camp. The moment the car pulled up in the drive way,...

Wakozi chan! I cannot express enough the gratitude I have for both Rob and Lydia from Nkuringo Walking Safaris for helping create such a great itinerary and taking care of the planning, logics, lodging, drivers, permits, etc. for my time in Rwanda/Uganda. Their attention to detail was unmatched, and everyone affiliated with Nkuringo Walking Safaris was professional, kind, knowledgeable, helpful...

Before heading out there earlier this year, I'd spent several months planning the intricacies of an independent trip traveling through Uganda. One of the items on the itinerary was a Nkuringo Walking Safari from Kisoro through to Nkuringo - this was a slight variation from the longer itinerary outlined on the website but the NWS team was ever so helpful...

As you drive through Bwindi and climb the almost interminable road to Nkuringo, you will find yourself asking, Is this worth it?? The simple truth is, it is more than worth the journey. Nkiringo is about as close to perfect as a place can be, and when you consider where it is located, it is a miracle. Dora welcomed us...

The camp itself is lovely, the staff is very friendly - that's been described amply and all I can say is that I agree with the positive comments... but what sets the Gorilla Camp apart is the phenomenal amount of information and assistance provided by Robert.

Based on the lack of Uganda tourism ads in the US, I thought I had to fly to Rwanda track gorillas there and then go to Uganda to track chimps. But was I SO wrong. Not only are permits cheaper in Uganda by $250USD, but the people alone could be the selling point of this country. And the gorilla camp...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located on the edge of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest; home to the world’s remaining Mountain Gorillas, Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge offers a unique style of accommodation and amenities whilst sharing the soothing tranquillity of a rainforest and warm personality Uganda is best known to give. The Lodge is perched on the Nteko ridge overlooking the Bwindi forest, the ridge provides a superb vantage across the Kashasha river Valley to the forested hill known as “Nkuringo” and a panoramic views of the majestic volcanoes of the Virunga chain and across the escarpment into the Albertine Rift Valley within the DRC Congo. We have a raft of quality accommodation possibilities at the Lodge as we strive to be an all Inclusive and not exclusive venue. The Location of the Lodge is too special to be selfish! ... more   less
