Bwindi Forest National Park Safari Lodges
Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp
The lodge is nestled deep inside Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in southwest Uganda. This camp is one of the most remote and atmospheric in Africa.
Bwindi Impenetrable Forest impresses with a truly theatrical landscape – this is a region of volcanoes, jagged valleys, waterfalls, lakes and dramatic mountain ranges. And it is here, on a flat ridge high in the forest, that Sanctuary’s Gorilla Forest Camp is tucked away. This is the ideal base for encounters with the mountain gorillas that live in Bwindi.
Buhoma Community Rest Camp
Buhoma Community Rest Camp is an excellent base for Gorilla trekking. The accommodation is just before the entrance of Bwindi National Park and occasionally the Gorillas visit the camp!
At the Buhoma community Rest Camp accommodation is provided in clean well maintained bandas, self-contained safari tents mounted on platforms that look into the Bwindi forest. All the accommodation has solar electric lighting installed as well as hot water showers. Five of the bandas have shared washing/toilet facilities whilst one unit is self-contained. There are several leveled terraces for those with their own equipment to camp. Cold beers and sodas are available with local produce used to provide visitors meals.
Wagtail Eco safari camp
It offers a unique and ultimate way to experience the panoramic hills of Kigezi as you visit the camp. On your way you encounter the beautiful scenic volcanoes of the great Virunga and the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.
The Lodge is located in Rubuguri village the centre point of Gorilla Tracking of Nshongi and Nkuringo Gorilla groups. Located in Kisoro district, the extreme part of south western Uganda East Africa, it takes one and half hours driving from the camp to either borders of Rwanda and DR Congo. This Mountain Gorilla World is in the southern sector of Bwindi where the biggest Mountain Gorilla family (Nshongi) in Uganda is found. It’s the only place in Uganda where Gorilla Twins have been registered in Nkuringo group and Kahungye family which is also to be opened soon for Gorilla Tourism. All the three Gorilla groups have more than one silver backs and black backs.
Eco Marvels Gorilla Resort
This is a State of the Art Resort located just adjacent to the Magnificent Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in South Western Uganda. The Resort has a panoramic view of the breathtaking ranges of the Impenetrable forest and the congruence to the Local Communities around the Park.
The Resort is the only accommodation facility in Bwindi where you have a chance of tracking the endangered Mountain Gorillas with ease. From the Gorilla Country Resort, visitors can access Oruzogo and Habinyanja Gorilla Groups which are the most popular due to their composition and numbers. One has an opportunity to see a gentle giant in the jungles of Bwindi without having to drive kilometers.
At the Resort, numerous bird calls welcome the guest and it’s undoubtedly a birders den in Bwindi Area. The Beauty, the glamour, the panoramic view, the People, the Food and the Gorillas truly make Gorilla Country Resort a place one MUST visit while he/she still lives.
Nkuringo Gorilla Camp
The Nkuringo Gorilla Camp is to be found located at 2161m ASL on the Nteko ridge overlooking a beautiful swath of the world renowned Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park. The ridge provides a superb vantage across the Kashasha river valley to the forested hill known as ‘Nkuringo’ and the surrounding swathe of trees of the Bwindi Forest.
This section of forest is home to the Nkuringo group of Mountain Gorillas from where the camp provides a prime access point to the start of this amazing activity. The camp has panoramic views of the majestic volcanoes of the Virunga chain and across the escarpment into the Albertine Rift Valley within the DR Congo.
A lucky few visitors will observe the clouds envelop the forested valley below the camp and be party to views to the north as far as the glaciers on the Rwenzori peaks some 160 kms distant. In January 2010 visitors were thrilled to witness not one but two active volcanoes in the DR Congo from Nkuringo. Both Nyiragongo and Nyamuragira continue to light up the night sky on clear evenings for the intrepid travelers to Nkuringo.
