Buhoma Lodge


One of only two lodges situated within the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, Buhoma Lodge offers the perfect base for your gorilla adventures. Each of the ten chalets is set above the main building to make the best of the forest views. The stone-built and insect-screened chalets have small verandas, comfortable beds and large bathrooms with rain shower (some also have bathtubs). The communal area is very cosy and inviting with a large central fire, small bar and restaurant serving excellent food freshly prepared from local produce.

Buhoma Lodge is a mere five minutes’ walk to the park headquarters from where all activities, mainly gorilla tracking, begin. This makes it an ideal lodge for activities in the northern section of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.

Solar power is used inside the cottages for lighting, with a central area available for recharging videos and cameras.


Bar and restaurant, open air lounge, open fireside, spa treatment room with complimentary massages, and a complimentary laundry and hiking boot cleaning service. Free Wi-Fi internet and recharging facilities are available in the bar. The gift shop has local crafts for sale.

Local Wildlife

As well as in the national park, mountain gorillas can occasionally be found in the lodge grounds.

Optional Activities

Mountain gorilla trekking, Bwindi forest walk, bird watching, butterfly watching, the Batwa cultural experience, Buhoma community village walk, visits to the Batwa Pygmy tribe to learn about their unique culture, massages at the lodge.

The Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is Beautiful, and the lodge offers vistas of it from rooms and common areas. Another party of four were there for the first night and for the next two we were the sole guests. Again, wonderful food and service. The grounds have great blue turacos and many other forest birds are nearby. L'Hoest's monkeys are on the property and both visible and photogenic. Of course, being adjacent to the park HQ for gorilla tracking is an advantage.
We had great success with gorillas, and got excellent photos of the youngsters playing and the adults mostly relaxing. When we were about to depart, the guides allowed us extra time because the gorillas were about to cross a creek. The guides positioned us on the other side of the creek so we could photograph them crossing and drinking. Apparently this is rare to see. Our third day we walked in the forest and did a tour of the village. This is a wonderful place on earth and will always be special to us.
