Nestled in the foothills of the Virunga Volcanoes, Mount Gahinga Lodge rests on the edge of Mgahinga Gorilla National Park in south-western Uganda and is a tranquil and secluded safari escape. The park is home to mountain gorillas, rare golden monkeys, atmospheric bamboo forests and the sacred Ngarama Cave, which was once home to the king of the Batwa Pygmies.
Against a backdrop of three mighty, now-extinct volcanoes, this exclusive-use lodge is set in a beautiful landscape of gardens and has nine rustic bandas designed to fit seamlessly into the natural environment.
Experience the diversity of Uganda’s wildlife with a trek into the hills to see elusive gorilla or golden monkeys. Or simply relax the terrace of your lodge as you take in the incredible views of the volcanos and untouched African terrain.
