'This was far and away my favourite lodge in Uganda. The experience with the Batwa is the best cultural exchange activity I've done on any holiday.'

Kristen, USA

'Gahinga was just beautiful and the staff were so welcoming. The complimentary massage was incredible - just wonderful.'

Ashley, USA

'We were lucky to be at Gahinga on the day the Batwa perform their dances for the villages around the lodge. The children were adorable and everyone came out to watch. It was the highlight of our trip.'

Jenny, Australia

'The staff were amazing, so thoughtful. The views are spectacular, the three enormous volcanos rising up before you, Mt Muhavura, Mt Gahinga and Mt Sabinyo. There is such peace and quiet here.'

Donnie, USA

'Stephen's food was delicious (tilapia, pork chops, stew, fried potatoes, mushroom soup, minestrone soup..I could keep going), and the staff made us a cake for our 2 year anniversary while there. What a nice thought!'

Sally, USA

'A tranquil and beautiful place. The Batwa are enchanting and we loved every moment with them, can't wait to show people the pictures!'

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.'
