Best Places to Stay in Uganda: Bwindi Safari Lodge
A SMALL-FOOTPRINT BASE FOR GORILLA TRACKING
The Bwindi Safari Lodge is among the best places to stay in Uganda and is a Bushtracks favorite. The Bwindi Safari Lodge in Uganda overlooks the primeval Bwindi Forest, home to gorillas, monkeys, chimpanzees and birds. Tracking gorillas in the so-called ‘impenetrable' forest is a magical experience. At this stunning eco-lodge with eight bandas, clients can spend the day on the terrace, which juts out into the forest, mesmerized by its exotic sounds, watching primates and birds in the canopy.
The walk to the river, through regenerated bush which has been carefully nurtured as a buffer zone, is magical. It is a favorite haunt for the gorillas and they often sleep at the lodge. The lodge is an hour's flight from Entebbe, a day long drive from Kampala or a six hour drive from Kigali.
