Buhoma Lodge commands spectacular and uninterrupted views of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park home to the rare and elusive Mountain Gorilla.
Ten comfortable, rustic cottages have been carefully built, each with its own private verandah, allowing wonderful views of the forest canopy. An elevated lounge area, complete with bar and dining facilities, offers a cosy, comfortable environment, to discuss the day’s activities around the fireplaces. The lodge has been designed using sustainable local materials where possible, which has in turn given support to the local communities and businesses. The water supply is gravity fed and solar power is used for lighting with power points limited to a central area allocated for recharging cameras and videos. Meals are freshly prepared with many local ingredients, offering a balance of international and locally flavoured cuisine.
Situated within the National Park, Buhoma Lodge is a short distance from the meeting point for gorilla tracking and other activities in the area, such as hiking, bird-watching and cultural tours to local villages.
