Where to stay in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest

Nestled on the outskirts of the ancient Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site known for its population of mountain gorillas, you'll find a selection of safari lodges and camps that offer a gateway to an unforgettable gorilla trekking experience in Uganda. These accommodations are thoughtfully located within the park's four main trekking sectors – Nkuringo, Buhoma, Rushaga, and Ruhija – providing easy access to wilderness adventures in the rainforest and its star inhabitants.

Safari lodges and camps in Bwindi Forest cater to a range of preferences and budgets. Choose a luxurious option with stunning forest views, where you'll awaken to the sounds of birdsong and enjoy exquisite meals amidst the vibrant rainforest backdrop. For those seeking a balance of comfort and affordability, consider mid-range lodges offering cozy rooms, often with fireplaces and inviting communal spaces to share stories of your gorilla encounters with other guests.

Budget-conscious travelers will also find welcoming lodges outside Bwindi, providing clean and comfortable accommodations that prioritize access to the park's natural wonders.

Beyond the thrill of gorilla trekking, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park offers a wealth of additional experiences.
