Buhoma Lodge

Bwindi, Uganda

Buhoma Lodge is one of the original lodges in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, situated diagonally opposite the park entrance, about five minute’s walk to the gorilla trekking start point. The elevated main areas allow for guests to savour spectacular views over the tropical rainforest. There is a cosy lounge, dining room and fireplace around which to gather in the evenings. The proprietors have commendable environmental and social policies in place, with local sourced ingredients utilised wherever possible; solar power and staff being locally employed and trained. There is free wifi in public areas.

Each of the eight spacious cottages have comfy beds and a private verandah, en- suite flush loo, hot shower and some have bath tubs in addition. Children and families are welcome. A solar power system provides lighting for the rooms and communal areas but some electricity for charging equipment.

 

Accommodation Reviews

Hi Craig

I had an epic trip in Uganda recently and I wanted to give you my feedback,

Don’t change anything. It’s been tough to come back to reality after such a marvelous holiday! I will never forget the beautiful sounds of the forest from my room in the Buhoma Lodge and the L’Hoest monkeys outside my cabin, the gorilla families I visited, and the chimpanzee who strolled past, just a few feet away, and who gave me a look as if to say, ‘what are you looking at?’. The itinerary was excellent, and there was plenty to do, but it was possible to relax as well. I was particularly fortunate that our group of five got on so well. Our guide, Ham, was friendly and knowledgeable.

I was inspired to go to Uganda by two Dutch ladies I met on holiday, who were enthusiastic but gave me the impression that I should expect to rough it a bit. They couldn’t have been more wrong. The standard of the accommodation and the food was overall very high. On the first night I stayed in a beautiful room in the Boutique no. 5 Hotel in Entebbe and the food there was extraordinary and exceptionally creative, even measured by London standards. Buhoma Lodge and Ishasha Wilderness Camp were in beautiful locations and had some of the friendliest and most helpful staff I’ve ever come across: nothing was too much trouble and I was made to feel like a VIP.

It was very helpful that the flights were booked on my behalf: I had an experience with another travel company where I had to book my own flights to Tanzania and if I’d been better informed I would have had a much less stressful journey on the way there. My only niggle would be an issue with reconfirming my return flight, which I was instructed to do in the travel information. The office in Entebbe couldn’t do it, as they didn’t have my flight details, and I ended up emailing Craig in London  (in itself tricky, as I didn’t have email access in the Ishasha Wilderness Camp on my phone and one of the other passengers did it for me. It turned out that I probably didn’t need to reconfirm, but it did cause me a bit of stress.

Rainbow Tours will definitely be my first port of call when I’m booking future trips, wherever they may be.

'The trip (Uganda Gorilla & Game:Group Safari) was great.

Enjoyed all lodges, loved Buhoma more. All staff were great.

The gorilla trekking was great - came back after 6 hours for the 1st trek.  The sightings were great and the Uganda Wildlife Authority guide was engaging and passionate.

The forest walk was amazing, though it had an effect on their fitness the next day for gorilla trekking.

Ham (our guide) was a star. He was very knowledgeable. The vehicle was good and comfortable.

Gorilla trekking was the safari highlight'

The accommodation we stayed in was extremely good, our favourites being the Bohoma Lodge, extra friendly staff, beautiful location, room with a veranda view, excellent food, lovely 'bucket' fires in the dining room and of course the hot water bottle.
