Volcanoes Bwindi Safari Lodge
Overlooking the depths of the primeval forest, Bwindi Safari Lodge features eight stone and tile bandas that are the ideal base for a gorilla or chimpanzee adventure in the depths of the forest.
Each banda boasts its own terrace, which juts out into the forest, with its green canopies and colourful birdlife. Guests can sample delicious fare or enjoy an evening drink in the cosy bar and dining area gazing out onto the forested slopes.
Other activities include forest walks in the rainforest, as well as an interactive community visit to a neighbouring village to learn about the traditional way of life of the Batwa Pygmies.
