I spent 7 weeks via footsteps through africa at Karungi Camp and had the best time! Gordy and the whole team were very welcoming, caring and made sure we were happy at all times.
We were spoiled with good food and could benefit from tips and tricks whether it was about the best trails to go hiking, boda fares to the lakes or transport to Bwindi.
Very unique is that the Camp offers a very authentic, naturally real experience of exchange between locals and tourists, as the locals also like to come to Karungi. Which is rare among most hotels.. we valued the conversations with locals a lot.
As the Camp is run by a local, the community benefits in many ways.
All in all, it was the best home away from home and I would always come back !

We walked through the forest from Buhoma. Gordon from Karungi (which means amazing) was there to pick us up. After my wife frightened the local Batwa children (who had never seen a white person before) we headed to Karungi.

Although Karungi has not been open very long, it was clear that hospitality is in Gordon's blood. He helped co-ordinate logistics, which is very significant in that part of the world, drove us to and from our gorilla experience in Rushaga and then to the airport after two fantastic days.

The rooms were clean and welcoming. The gardens are fantastic with beautiful views of the mountains and a good place to relax in the sun after a long day of following gorillas. We food was excellent and everyone pays local prices for the drinks.

I highly recommend Gordon and Karungi.

Room tip: We stayed in room one which is close to the main building.

A basic camp with clean rooms, a hugh shower with warm water (except in the morning.....) and a very very friendly staff. Choose karungi to experience hospitality. We arrived in rain but still the staff made us feel welcome and give us a warm feeling. For dinner & breakfast & packed lunch we were allowed to choose and it was tasteful. Gordon was a very friendly host and the atmospfere in the bar was very good. Enjoy the karungi camp and go for the sunset to a local bar, gordon will show you. thank you all for your hospitality & kindness

Me and my two friends had an amazing time in Karungi Camp!
The place is wonderful, we shared a nice specious room with the 3 of us. The beds were good, it's very clean and with a nice rain shower.

Yoly, Gordon and the rest of the crew were very nice and willing to help. They arranged transport to and from Kibale for us and the whole process with the Gorilla permits. It is only a few minutes drive to the starting point of the gorilla tracking.

I've been to a lot of places in Africa, but this place in definitely in the top 3. The views of Bwindi are amazing.

Biwindi Forrest is a remote corner of Uganda. It is 5 hours from Kigali and 10 hours from Kampala. It is also a forgotten part in a totally corrupt nation. There is no electricity to speak of. Solar power costs so much that no one can regain their investment within a life time unless they charge hundreds of dollars per person per night. Everything has to be brought from either Kosoro (45 minutes ride by private car) or from Avale (2.5 hours drive). Unemployment is close to 90% in the community where there are more than 2000 children. Under these circumstances Yoly presented us with a beautiful room, clean, huge bathroom with hot water shower, flush toilet, good food, incredible views from everywhere, a nice garden, and an amazing amount of LOVING CARE. She had organized our gorilla permits, provided us with transportation from Cyanika border and she even went with us to see us off at Kavale when we took the bus for Kampala. We have left a part of our hearts with her. The common area with the fire place was inviting and equally inviting was the fresh passion fruit juice and the smiling staff. Yoly's positiveness is beautifully contagious. Do not come here if you are expecting high end creature comfort like ice in your drinks (there is NO POWER) and wifi. Bring your solar powered lights/lanterns, remain flexible about food, think of glamping, let the staff know at what time you would like to take shower so that they can start the wood fire boiler on time for you to get wonderful hot water and you will have a great time. Even if you do not want to do the gorilla trekking, it is a spectacularly beautiful land for hiking, walking, meditating, writing and doing nothing. We spent 3 lovely days in Karungi Camp, a community oriented, environmentally conscious place.
