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