Buhoma Lodge, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest
Buhoma Lodge commands spectacular views of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park. Considered as an intimate, top quality lodge offering guests a cosy, relaxing environment. On occasion Mountain Gorillas have even been seen in the garden.
The location Buhoma Lodge has been carefully selected, and has been designed to be eco-friendly; built in such a way to minimise the impact or ‘footprint’ on the surrounding area. Environmental Impact studies have been undertaken during the development stages, in order to build and run the camp within acceptable levels. Constructed using local materials, with minimal impact on the surroundings, and locally grown foodstuffs in order to support the community.
Eight comfortable cottages have been carefully built from local materials. Each suite has a private verandah and enormous windows, allowing guests spectacular views of the forest canopy and the Bwindi National Park. The lounge area, complete with bar and dining facilities, offers a cosy place to discuss the day’s activities.
The lodge has been designed using sustainable local materials where possible, with the emphasis being on natural products, which has, in turn, given support to the local communities. Solar power is used inside the cottages for lighting, with a central area available for recharging videos and cameras.
Inside the spacious cottages you will find comfortable beds, a well appointed en suite bathroom with flushing toilet and a hot shower (there is a special treat in store for honeymooners!). The bar has a selection of local and imported beverages, and friendly staff look forward to discussing the day’s activities with you. As part of Buhoma’s commitment to the community, staff are recruited locally and provide excellent service to our guests.
