Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge is a luxury accommodation option for gorilla trekking tours travelers at Buhoma, Bwindi’s most popular trailhead. Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge can’t be beaten on design and style, and the quality of service puts it unarguably in the top echelon of luxury safari lode in Uganda.
Accommodation is in 8 standard Banda’s and 2 deluxe Banda’s, each Banda named after a gorilla. Butler service is included in each room, and there are en-suite bathrooms with a walk-in shower, and a private veranda with awesome views of the forest on your doorstep.
The main building has a lounge area centred on an open fireplace, a bar and restaurant, and a common viewing deck. There is a spa built into the forest just off the main building. The food at Volcanoes is a cut above the rest, and because most travelers passing through the lodge will be doing a gorilla trek, they know exactly what you need before, during and after your trek.
The main compound is extremely light, the walls practically made of windows, and the building leads out onto a viewing deck that’s perfect for enjoying a cocktail or two before retreating to your private cottage for dinner. The food at Volcanoes is in a league above many other lodges in Uganda, and the service really is top class.
Mount Gahinga Lodge is the perfect base to go gorilla tracking on the Ugandan side of the Virunga’s, track the rare golden monkey, climb a volcano, walk through local villages and most of all to share the culture of the Batwa, the oldest inhabitants of the Central African rain forest.
The beautiful hand-built Banda’s reflect the magic of the aesthetic traditions of the Bufumbira people. Each Banda has an en-suite luxury shower room, fireplace and private porch.
It offers eight traditional hands built guest Banda’s facing the magical Virunga Volcanoes (Two deluxe and six standard rooms). Enjoy the exceptional hospitality and locally-inspired food. Personal butler service for all guests. Wi-Fi throughout the lodge and all-inclusive premium drinks menus.

Kyambura Gorge Lodge, this eclectic contemporary safari lodge has been converted from an old coffee store to create a breath-taking beautiful space. The lodge is located on the edge of Queen Elizabeth National Park with sweeping views of the rolling Savannah, the distant mountains of the moon, and the sunken Kyambura Gorge.
The stylish Banda’s also have a contemporary theme with the accent on local artefacts re-imagined in a new context. Each Banda offers a unique view either across the Savannah or the gorge. The lodge is the ideal location for tracking the lost chimps in the sunken forest of Kyambura Gorge nearby and seeing the amazing game in one of Africa’s most beautiful and varied parks, centred around the waterway of the Kazinga Channel where animals come to bathe. The park has six hundred amazing bird species, the highest in an African park.
Each Banda offers a unique view either across the Savannah or the gorge. There are four new deluxe Banda’s and four standard Banda’s. A new spa and swimming pool was launched in 2019.
New walking safaris have been created around the lodge to experience the dramatic landscapes of Kyambura gorge and the Queen Elizabeth Savannah, and visit a reclaimed wetland. Guests can walk along the Kyambura gorge buffer zone we have created to protect the fragile ecosystem from encroachment and contribute to its long-term conservation project by planting a seedling.
