I'm enquiring about: Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge

Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge

Bwindi, Uganda

Perched on Nteko Ridge overlooking the distant peaks of the Virungas to one side and the forest-clad slopes of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park to the other side, this superb property is one of our firm favourites. 

It is only one of only two lodges on the Bwindi south side, which is well away from the crowds. Gorilla tracking in this area is superb.

There are eight en-suite terraced rooms and two private en-suite cottages. Additionally there are four safari tents, sensitively constructed using local materials with shared facilities. The main building has dining area, open air cultural performance area and fair–trade community market.

The proprietor works closely with the local community to ensure authenticity of the cultural experiences; they support local producers and are the first and only lodge to date in Uganda to obtain a carbon neutral status, an exemplary accolade, particularly for such a remote location.

Aside from gorilla tracking, guests can enjoy exceptional hiking in beautiful surrounds, wonderful birding (many of the sought-after forest-dependent Albertine Rift Endemics are found here), sensitively arranged visits to the Batwa people and canoe trips on scenic Lake Mutanda nearby. The lodge is also an excellent start point to the increasingly popular Ivi Trail, which ends at Buhoma.  

Accommodation Reviews

The entire process was wonderful. Craig Kaufman responded to my requests, even my unavoidable last minute changes to my flights. I have recommended this company and his name to a colleague of mine who would like to do a similar trip.
The actual experience I cannot say enough about, a couple of weeks later now, it seems like it was truly a divine dream come true. I loved the lodge, the personnel there addressed you by your name as soon as you set foot outside of the vehicle upon arrival. The meals were wonderful, the UWA was very efficient, the trekking was superb and of course the gorilla families were beyond beautiful.
Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge: excellent in all respects. 
If I return to the area to do the habituation program I will definitely use the same company, agent, guide and lodging.
