Bwindi Lodge

In the midst of the impenetrable jungle in southwestern Uganda, Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge is located on the edge of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. The national park is one of the few areas in the world where the endangered mountain gorillas still live in the wild and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Only a narrow river separates the lodge's guests from the lush green foliage of the forest, which is one of the last untouched spots on earth. Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge is not only an excellent base for trekking and safaris in the tracks of the unique gorillas, but also for observing numerous species of monkeys and birds hiding in the mysterious thicket. In the lodge's authentic bandas and with sensational views over the treetops, true nature lovers are completely in their element at Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge.


The lodge offers its guests nine exclusive cottages, which are modeled after African bandas and built from natural, sustainable and local materials. Under the thatched roofs are comfortable and spacious sleeping and living areas that are simply yet luxuriously designed. Each accommodation has an en-suite bathroom with a toilet, double sinks as well as a shower. Floor-to-ceiling windows with access to a private terrace reveal a breathtaking view over the deep green treetops of the jungle, from which the fascinating mountain gorillas emerge from time to time in search of food or shelter.

At the heart of the lodge is the open-plan main building with a bar, lounge, small library, restaurant and dining area. From the extensive veranda overlooking the mystical forest, it is wonderful to observe a wide variety of birds and other wildlife. The sumptuous breakfast, light lunch and four-course dinner are also served here. The Ugandan dishes with an international touch are lovingly and freshly prepared and accompanied by a large selection of soft drinks as well as international wines and spirits. A special highlight after each gorilla trek is a visit to the Bwindi Bar, which was opened by the lodge as a community project to provide disadvantaged youth from the community with training in the hospitality industry.

Die Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge liegt im äußersten Südwesten Ugandas am Rande des Bwindi Impenetrable Nationalparks, einem der letzten Rückzugsorte der einzigartigen Berggorillas sowie zahlreicher weiterer Vogel- und Affenarten. Die Lodge ist nur wenige hundert Meter von dem Ausgangspunkt für das Gorilla-Trekking durch den undurchdringlichen Urwald entfernt.

Guests of Bwindi Lodge visit this special place mainly to meet once in their life one of the rare and protected mountain gorillas that live in Bwindi National Park. Due to its exclusive location directly at the entrance of the national park, the lodge is the ideal base for true nature lovers who want to explore the unique biospheres of the untouched jungle. Besides gorilla trekking, the lodge is also an excellent starting point for guided hikes through the jungle and to hidden waterfalls as well as bird watching. Those interested in culture can gain an authentic insight into the life of the local population on excursions to the surrounding communities. After returning to the lodge, adventurous explorers unwind with a relaxing massage at the Humula Forest Spa.
