This lodge has an amazing view of the mountain terrain and some local villages. The rooms felt like a hotel, with the most comfortable beds. Great bathroom. The chef cooked the most delicious breakfast, lunches, and dinner. Staff was very friendly and fun.

Impeccable service and a 100 metres from the gorilla guides centre. The staff looked after our every needs and were trained to the highest of western standards. We were made to feel very much at home and they took real interest in our sightings. We would recommend this to anyone looking for privacy and luxury.

We spent two nights in this lodge on a 2-week tour of Uganda and Rwanda. The location was fantastic - we were overlooking a forest. We almost felt in the forest from our cabin.

This is a very nice property with well kept and organized grounds. The main building offers comfortable seating, nice views, electrical recharging facilities and bottomless coffee and tea.

The rooms are very clean individual units that are equipped with extremely comfortable beds...
