Delve into the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and find the Bwindi Safari Lodge! Recently refurbished, the lodge offers eight bandas, each with a private terrace overlooking the canopy, en-suite bathrooms with flush toilets and hot showers and locally crafted furniture and fixtures. Located in the main lodge is a fireside bar and lounge area, the perfect place to exchange gorilla tracking stories with other Africa safari travelers. Open and covered terraces also provide prime forest viewing opportunities. As a favorite haunt of the gorillas, you may even see the primates sleeping at the lodge on your Uganda Tour.
