Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge

Spacious rooms and cottages overlooking Virunga volcanoes

Wonderful hospitality in a remote setting

A cosy venue with excellent opportunities for hikers, walkers and gorilla trekking

By the Nteko Ridge, Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge is a wonderful property which overlooks an exquisite swathe of rainforest. The ridge provides an awe-inspiring vantage point across the Kashasha River Valley, to the forested hill of Nkuringo. Additionally, there are panoramic views of the majestic Virunga volcano chain and across the escarpment to the Albertine Rift Valley within the DR Congo. The lodge is perfectly located for those who wish to visit the Nkuringo and Rushaga Gorilla groups.

The Virunga Terrace Rooms are a block of six connected rooms each with en-suite facilities, a front terrace and a rear window overlooking the Virunga Volcanoes. The four private cottages are separate units each with en-suite facilities, a terrace and a fireplace. There is a family cottage which can sleep up to six guests. Solar power is used, and rainwater harvesting is done from metallic roofs. The property has a lovely spa and it is possible to have a personal butler.

Gorilla tracking aside, the area is an attractive choice for keen walkers and hikers – ask us for details about the Top of the World Nature Walk which allows guests to experience 360° views over Bwindi, the Virungas and into the DR Congo, as well as the three to five hour Suma Waterfall Trail and the increasingly popular Ivi Trail, among others. The guides here work with Nkuringo Walking Safaris and their work is of an impeccable standard – they are passionate about what they do.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… that’s why our focus is on using our community to make your holiday COME TO LIFE.
