Gahinga Lodge is the perfect base to go gorilla tracking in Uganda. Track the rare golden monkey, climb a volcano, walk through local villages and most of all to share the culture of the Batwa, the oldest inhabitants of the Central African rain forest. Nestled at the base of the Virunga Volcanoes, Mount Gahinga Lodge is a stunning luxury adventure lodge hidden in the southern corner of Uganda. Its rustic charm is inspired by traditional design and building techniques.

The lodge with its beautiful living room, sunroom and terrace have fantastic views of the volcanoes and the Kisoro valley below.

The luxury bandas reflect the magic of the aesthetic traditions of the Bufimbira people, with their distinct colors. Each Banda has an ensuite luxury shower room, fireplace, and private porch. A new Deluxe Banda has been launched in 2018 and a further one has been launched in June 2019.
