Buhoma Lodge in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is a high end facility situated less than five minutes walk away from Bwindi Impenetrable National Park offices in Buhoma, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, home of the mountain gorilla in Uganda. It offers accommodation in six, en suite spacious twin / double cottage units with individual verandas allowing excellent views towards the pristine tropical rain forests of the area.
In addition, for the more budget conscious, three more twin rooms are available with shared bathroom facilities. All bathrooms have hot and cold running water and flush toilets.
A solar system provides for lighting in the cottages, common areas and central facilities for video and camera charging.
The cottages and their furnishings have recently been upgraded and improved to provide a more comfortable environment for guests. The emphasis is on providing an intimate, homely atmosphere whilst at the same time ensuring that facilities and services expected by international travelers are available.
Uganda Safari: The cool evenings (as the lodge is at almost 1500 meters above sea level) are compensated for with a fireplace being lit in the common area, providing a cosy environment for guests to meet each other and discuss the events of the day. A bar service provides local beers, waragi (Ugandan gin), sodas and wines for purchase.
As part of our commitment to the local infrastructure, staff are recruited from the local communities of the area and they provide a welcoming environment and excellent service levels for guests. When ever possible, supplies including local fresh produce are purchased through arrangements with local residents and businesses in the area.
Meals are freshly prepared and wholesome quantities are served. A variety of international dishes are served as well as local dishes such as matooke and g-nut sauce, on request.
As part of an ongoing commitment to enhance the lodge, further upgrading of the common areas and building of some additional cottages will be taking place over the next few months at of low guest occupancy. We will be trying to minimize the impact of these changes on our guests but we would ask your patience in this regard as we will continue to welcome guests at the lodge.
