We spent three nights, using the Camp as starting point for our gorillas tracking. The location is great, the accomodation too, the staff very friendly. It is not a luxury resort, it's eco-friendly without been extreme in that sense and guests enjoy all possible care and little details, which definitely make of it a special experience. Different target price accomodations...

We found this place underwhelming. For what is offered, it's overpriced. The views were lovely but as there's little competition in this area, I think they're resting on their laurels. Our tent leaked: The flaps over the windows were not waterproof so rain poured in during the night. I tried to move my bed away from the window but the...

We stayed at the Nkuringo Gorilla Camp for two nights. It was a beautiful lodge. The rooms were really nice. The showers and bathrooms clean. The staff was delightful and the food was delicious. We were so happy that we included this lodge in our itinerary. I really have nothing bad to say about them. They definitely went above and...

I was a single traveller and the best part of Nkuringo Gorilla Camp was meeting others and making some good friends. The dinner seating was either two large tables, or one extra large table, which is great to meet people and chat. The food was pretty good and the service was good as well, though I did have a problem...

My friend and I stayed at the Gorilla Camp in November 2012 and it was the jewel of an already amazing trip through East Africa. The Nkuringo Gorilla Camp was everything that Lonely Planet claimed it was and more. Robert and his knowledge of the local community and gorilla families was unbelievable and I could go back just to spend...

We stayed for 2 nights in one of the cottages, which was part of a package. I am aware that these cost more than $300 per night. For such amounts you’d get a superb room in most European cities, but this is Uganda. So, forget about money and prices if you have decided to book, and enjoy the place. It’s...

We arrived in the middle of a very heaven downpour after driving ourselves there. We were met with smiles, and umbrellas, and shortly afterwards tea and cake. We did lazy camping, and these were perfectly comfortable beds in a dome tent. The camping part is elevated with splendid views of nearby hills in Bwindi (one the storm had cleared). Hot...

This is a nice camp in a beautiful setting with friendly and attentive staff. We stayed in the cottage twin room without shower etc and still paid USD300 per night. The showers/ toilets are quite some way from the room. The food included in the price was very average, in fact it was less than average, especially when the cost...

A big thank you to Rob Brierley and his welcoming and very helpful staff at Nkuringo gorilla camp. We had a fantastic stay. We ate very well at Nkuringo: a four course dinner both nights. I love the freshly baked bread and rolls. Vegetarian options can be catered for but should ideally be booked in advance. Wine is purchased by...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located on the edge of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest; home to the world’s remaining Mountain Gorillas, Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge offers a unique style of accommodation and amenities whilst sharing the soothing tranquillity of a rainforest and warm personality Uganda is best known to give. The Lodge is perched on the Nteko ridge overlooking the Bwindi forest, the ridge provides a superb vantage across the Kashasha river Valley to the forested hill known as “Nkuringo” and a panoramic views of the majestic volcanoes of the Virunga chain and across the escarpment into the Albertine Rift Valley within the DRC Congo. We have a raft of quality accommodation possibilities at the Lodge as we strive to be an all Inclusive and not exclusive venue. The Location of the Lodge is too special to be selfish! ... more   less
