Mount Gahinga Lodge


Safari Highlights

Located at the base of the Uganda side of the Virunga Volcanoes, Mount Gahinga Lodge is a luxury adventure lodge in the southern corner of Uganda. Its rustic ambience is inspired by traditional design, materials and building techniques.

Mt Gahinga Main Lodge

Ideal Base For The Mountains

Mt Gahinga Lodge is the ideal base from which to track gorillas or rare golden monkeys, climb a volcano, or walk through local villages. The lodge, with its beautiful living room, sun room and terrace has fantastic views of the volcanoes and the Kisoro valley below. The cottages reflect the aesthetic traditions of the Bufimbira people, with their distinct colours, and each one has an ensuite shower room, fireplace and private porch.

Gorillas and More

The lodge allows us to track two distinct populations of mountain gorillas over a period of 2 days in the Virungas and in Bwindi National Park. These two populations are geographically isolated, and whilst they are the same species, the differences in habitat, climate and vegetation allow for a fascinating glimpse into the contrasts between them.
