Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge

Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge sits at a 7000-ft (2,161-meters) altitude on a magnificent ridge with stunning views across the rugged landscapes and the entire Virunga Volcanoes chain backdrop. 

Nineteen Rooms in eleven private cottages, two family-style villas and four luxurious suites sit above the Bwindi Forest canopy with distinctive elegance and startling luxury amid forest trees, flowers, and shrubs. Locally styled furnishings grace the spacious rooms, and light fills the space from private viewing decks over the forest swath and beyond the entire Virunga Volcanoes chain. 

At the highest point on the property sits a grand lounge building housing the dining, drinks and coffee bar spaces with expansive 360-degree views of the gorgeous rugged landscape.

Based on hundreds of reviews from guests, Nkuringo is an excellent base for gorilla trekking adventures in the south of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in Nkuringo Sector (3 human-habituated gorilla families) and Rushaga Sector (8 human-habituated gorilla groups). 

The lodge is a six-time winner of the World Travel Awards (WTA) as the Leading Safari Lodge in Uganda since 2016.
