Bwindi Impenetrable NP, Southern Sector
Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge
Price Range: USD 300 pp (full board)
Unspoiled and untamed, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is one of the world’s last remaining rich ecosystems. It is spread over a series of steep ridges and valleys that form a protective habitat for the mountain gorillas, the main attractions in this pristine jungle.
The Nkuringo section of the forest is home to three Mountain Gorilla families. Nkuringo Gorilla Lodge provides a prime access point to the start of the excellent gorilla trekking activity. And about 25 minutes drive away if another trailhead, Rushaga, has eight habituated gorilla families and is also an alternative to trekking Nkuringo gorilla groups.
Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge is entirely eco-friendly. Its design is inspired and built with the natural material locally sourced within the communities that surround the lodge. It is owned and operated by a woman owner who employs from the local population to support the growth of the native population. Because the team at Nkuringo focuses on great service delivery, the lodge has won the WTA’s for the “Best Safari Lodge in Uganda” every year since 2016.
Accommodation at Nkuringo
On the edge of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, on a magnificent ridge, sits Nkuringo Lodge’s ten luxurious cottages. The chalets have a distinctive elegance and surprising luxury amid forest trees, flowers, and shrubs. Locally styled furnishings grace the spacious rooms, and light fills the space from your private viewing deck over the forest swath. There is also a private villa available, ideal for families or groups of friends traveling together.
Children under the age of 15 years are not permitted by UWA to trek mountain gorillas, but we have a selection of activities to keep them busy at the lodge while you embark on your gorilla trekking experience with a dedicated baby sitter.
In-room safe deposit box
Apart from the gripping encounter with the gorillas of the mountain, discover the Bwindi communities, peoples and cultures, on foot, or even hiking through the misty impenetrable jungles. You can even canoe on the nearby calm waters of lake Mutanda and spend a few moments on one of its indescribable small islands.
End the day with sundowners on top-of-the-world ridge. A breeze whispers through the air, cool and soothing, as you motor through the wilds and sip a refreshing cocktail. The evening is yours.
