Mount Gahinga Lodge – Uganda

Nestled in the foothills of the Virunga Volcanoes, Mount Gahinga is an exclusive Uganda adventure lodge that has the impressive backdrop of three of the volcanoes themselves. Its rustic charm creates an absorbing atmosphere of tranquility and history. Each of our Uganda luxury safari lodges were built to echo local techniques and design. Gahinga Lodge also partners with the Batwa Tribe, to offer interactive tours through the community of one of Africa’s oldest tribes.

The main building features a rustic living space with a warm central fire that offers the ideal environment for relaxing at the end of the day, with the terrace outside and a spacious sunroom adjoining the living area completing the peaceful and open style. Each of the bandas has been thoroughly renovated to offer unparalleled luxury in the region. Each room has a fireplace and an en-suite bathroom with showers and flush toilets and each is reached by taking a short stroll through the large gardens that fill the lodge with life.  For more information about our luxury safari lodges in Uganda or for enquiries about our Rwanda gorilla safaris, contact us.

Kona Tour Guide, Hawaii

'I loved the setting of this lodge. You are surrounded by vegetation. The chateaus were so cute. It was good being in the country side surrounded by farmland. We were a short walk from the park. The food was excellent. Staff were kind and helpful. A great experience.'
