My wife and I came to Bwindi to see the gorillas and this was the first stop on our 4 week trip to Africa. We had the most wonderful unique experience at this lodge, due to Covid we met Aaron, the son of the manager of the property, he tagged along with us for a day while we went out on a hike exploring the local villages. He was such a delight and hung out with us back at the lodge. This property is stunning, in the first minute we were checking in we spotted a silver back in a tree about 60 meters from the balcony of the lodge. The room was enormous and very comfortable, the baboons came up to the balcony and crawled around on the roof. We got a wonderful massage and enjoyed hanging out with another couple by the fire. The food was fantastic and they even made me a birthday cake on my birthday. If you are going to Bwindi, definitely stay here.

One family member recommended us to go and see the gorilas at Biwindi and stay at the Buhoma Lodge. We knew it was going to be a good experience, but it has been even better. Let us tell you why: 1) The place is just incredible. ¡The lodge is located in the middle of the Jungle! Our room was on top of the mountain and we had such amazing views of the jungle. At night when sleeping you could hear absolutely everything. What an experience. 2) Staff members were just incredible. They were always so nice to us, making sure everything was as we liked. Always with a smile in their face. 3) ¡The food was unbelievable! We did not now what to spect and for sure we were amazed of how good the food was. Great soups, second plates very tasty and amazing desserts. Thank you so much Buhoma Lodge for treating us so well and making sure our experience was incredible.

Staying at Buhoma Lodge was so so special for my family. It was the perfect location and lodge for our gorilla trekking adventure. The rooms are nestled into the woods and have a wonderful view of the mountains. The bathrooms are very special, one of the coolest showers we have seen. It was great to be able to walk to the gorilla trekking site and the village just from the lodge. Another highlight was the main center. We spent lots of time drinking tea and reading all there books around the cozy fire pit. Food was AMAZING, compliments to the chef. Our favorite activities during our stay were of course gorilla tracking and the village walk. The whole experience felt very genuine. The only complaint would be the stairs to the rooms, haha they were very slippery at times. Overall, incredible stay at Buhoma lodge.

We stayed here for two nights while gorilla trekking and were very happy with our choice. The lodge has a very intimate and comfortable atmosphere. The meals were consistently excellent and everyone was friendly. We enjoyed sitting in the main room of the lodge enjoying tea and cookies or appetizers and visiting with the other guests. We weren't sure whether to pack gators for the trek and were glad we didn't because the lodge provided them. Thanks to all there for a wonderful stay!

I travel a lot but rarely write reviews--making an exception here. By far the best hotel experience I've ever had. Just for context, in my two weeks travel in Uganda I stayed in 8-high end-hotels. I can not emphasize enough how Buhoma Lodge customer experience was by far the best one of them all. The very friendly staff attention to details is remarkable, amazing food and the serene surroundings. You get complimentary massage after gorilla trekking. How wonderful is that? I will tell all my friends about it. I highly recommend it! The experience reminded me of this quote "People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." ~Maya Angelou
