Uganda's Wildlife Areas

Gorilla Safari Lodge sits comfortably at the edge of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, a primeval forest and lush jungle region in south west Uganda. This national park is home to wild gorillas, forest elephants and 23 species of bird endemic to the area.

After a long day of trekking and ploughing through thick tropical vegetation, hikers can seek solace in knowing that their lodge is just a quick drive away from the entrance to the park.

The main lodge area houses the dining room, a relaxation lounge, spa treatment room and a quaint nook where the bar is situated. This remote lodge comprises 18 individual units (sleeping 45 in total) each with private wooden balconies overlooking the wilderness. 3 of these units are inter-leading rooms, making them ideal for families. Another 2 rooms are joined but aren’t inter-leading.  

The architecture and decor is comfortable, and all amenities from home are provided. Rooms have solar powered lighting, en-suite bathroom with hot and cold water and flush toilets. Each unit is designed to look like stand-alone log cabins that blend in with the surrounding rainforest, ensuring that the lodge does not look out of place in its wild surrounds. Cobbled paths with wooden bannisters join the well-appointed rooms, each of which have been named after individual gorillas or gorilla tribes. Some of the units come with a deep-set stand-alone bath and a fireplace. 

There are plenty of activities and things to do in the area, all of which can be arranged on site for an extra fee. Guests can choose between the full day gorilla conservation experience or the popular gorilla trekking. Either way, Gorilla Safari Lodge is the ideal hideaway to base yourself for a gorilla trekking safari in Uganda.
