Our main area includes the kitchen, a place to chill, a spot for pampering, and a unique corner that serves as our bar.
This isolated lodge is made up of 18 separate units (housing 45 guests in all) each with their own wooden balconies overlooking the wilderness.
Our décor mirrors the comfort of home, and we've got everything you might need. Rooms with solar-lighting, private bathrooms with all the necessities and included.
We designed each unit as a unique log cabin, blending seamlessly with the rainforest, making sure our lodge fits right in. Sturdy wooden paths connect our comfy rooms, each sharing names with individual gorillas or their tribes. Some rooms even have a special soaking tub and a fireplace.
You'll find lots to do around here, and we can arrange it for you. Guests can decide on the whole day gorilla conservation experience or the more common gorilla trek.
We welcome children at Gorilla Lodge, but they can't go on gorilla treks. We do have babysitting. Want a massage or spa treatment? We've got you covered upon request.
In short, Gorilla Safari Lodge is your perfect base for a gorilla safari in Uganda.
Set in a key location, Gorilla Safari Lodge is just a quick 5 minute drive from the main point of your gorilla safari - the Bwindi Forest National Park. Your journey to the gorillas begins here!
Need to land a plane? No problem! Kisoro airstrip is only 2 to 3 hours away.
Imagine this - you're staying at a lodge, surrounded by thick, green plants. Bwindi Forest's huge hills loom in front of you. Incredible, right?
Schools and a unique Batwa Pygmy community sit right before the lodge. These folks were the first ones in the rainforest!
Fancy a cool and moderate climate? You're in luck. The valley location of the lodge offers just that. It's pretty cool. Literally.
Souvenirs, anyone? There's a cozy market near the lodge. Grab your t-shirts and some handwoven stuff right away.
There are two ways to reach Gorilla Safari Lodge - via road or air. If you favor the road trip, hiring a driver would be our suggestion.
The journey by road takes roughly 7 - 9 hours and showcases an array of stunning landscapes.
For those starting from Uganda, the trip begins in Kampala, goes through the Equator, continues on to Mbarara and then onto Kabale.
The journey proceeds to Kisoro and then diverts at Muko (banyenzaki memorial). Then simply follow the signs for the Gorilla Safari Lodge to reach Rushaga where the lodge is situated.
Those selecting the flying option need to land at Entebbe International airport.
Then take a Charter Flight either from Entebbe International Airport or Kajjansi to the Kisoro Airstrip. From Kisoro, a road transfer will take you to the lodge in about 2 hours.
