Perched so high that it often looks down on the clouds that gather over the rainforest below, the lodge is located in a World Heritage Site. Lying at an altitude of 2000m above sea level it is Uganda’s highest, affording guests unforgettable vistas towards the Virunga volcanoes of Rwanda. Ten cottages built from volcanic stone provide attractive accommodation, each having a fireplace, comfortable overstuffed armchairs and handwoven carpets. A personal butler will attend to all details such as lighting the fire and lying out your laundered clothes. Walls are adorned with artworks by a leading Uganda artist who is regularly commissioned by guests to create original pieces to take home. All in all, an ideal base from which to go gorilla trekking in Bwindi National Park. Be prepared to trek for four hours or more for your personal encounter with the Nkuringo group of gorillas, currently led by the impressive silverback, Safari, and featuring uncommon gorilla twins. Bwindi bird watching is also spectacular.
