Luxury Nkuringo bwindi gorilla lodge – Luxury Gorilla trekking with guaranteed gorilla permits.
Luxury Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge is situated about 2161m above sea level where life seems different with total tranquillity. The lodge sits on Nteko ridge near Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park offering spectacular views of the forest canopy, Kashasha River Valley and the Virunga volcanoes.
Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge started as a campsite before upgrading to a lodge. Since 2007 when it grew to a lodge, it provides quality accommodation facilities to their guests through well trained and hospitable staffs and is now one of the best accommodations in the region. Right from the front desk staffs, waiters and waitresses, chefs, security staffs and others are all friendly and responsible for good service at the lodge.
The lodge consists of 8 garden cottages, 3 villas with 2 superior cottages and 1 family villa. The cottages were built with local materials that blend with nature. Each of them has a sitting area, a private veranda and en-suite bathrooms.
Nkuringo Campsite was integral to the success of the walking safari activity. People needed somewhere to sleep irrespective of how simple the accommodation was. By purchasing a building adjacent to the campsite and securing a long lease on a portion of the campsite it allowed Nkuringo Walking Safaris to grow by developing their own accommodation. Even though the original campsite has grown into a fully-fledged comfortable lodge the original ethos of helping the local community thrive has not changed.
With continued reinvestment the lodge continues to grow daily, by adding detail and infrastructure improvements. We are now proud to say that luxury Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge has grown to offer both mid-range and up-market accommodation.
The dining area is spacious and comfortable for all sizes of groups, both small and big groups. The restaurant serves 4- course dinner and prepares special diets when requested by guests. It also has a bar and a fire place to keep you warm during the cold mornings and evenings. The lounge is located at the best place on the hill to view the Virunga Volcanoes.
After a tiresome journey or hike, guests can visit the spa to rejuvenate their bodies and stay healthy and strong throughout the safari.
