Absolutely loved our stay at Mahogany Springs. The staff are super friendly and amazingly helpful - really the nicest people you could hope to meet. We arrived at the hotel at about 11:30pm as our flight was delayed. Usually the generator goes off at 10pm and the restaurant and bar is closed but they kept it on especially for us...

Hi Graham, Thank you for the fantastic review! It is a shame that you only stayed 2 nights but you can always come back :-). We will be waiting for you. The restaurant and bar usually stay open until the last clients go to bed and in regards to the generator....well our 24 hour power should be back up shortly!...

The mountain gorillas tend to overwhelm everything else when you're in Bwindi, but Mahogany Springs is still a notable lodge. The facilities are great, and the staff are even better. They took care of us at every turn. I would go back in a minute. (And the huge mahogany tree for which it is named is truly impressive.)

I arrived at Mahagony Springs at dark, frustrated by the long car journey from Kampala. (you should fly if you can afford it) It was not as I expected - dark rooms, no electricity from 1030pm to 530am...and it was not cheap. However, was blown away by the friendliness and hospitality of the staff, esp David and Jotham, who, you...

If you are looking for something truly comfortable with luxurious feeling, this should be your choice. This lodge has really comfy and spacious, privat cabins spreaded nicely around their premises, offering very nice privacy and serenity. The cabin was clean with really nice beds with soft linen (and really good, not too soft mattresses). Bathroom was spacious with a great,...
