The Engagi Lodge - Bwindi is a luxury lodge bordering the world-famous Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in south-western Uganda. The setting is simply stunning on the edge of the forest with all its sights and sounds, including gorillas, chimpanzees, birds and an array of plantlife. The Main Lodge building is divided into 3 sections: a “rock” bar, the restaurant, and a large wooden verandah with a separate outdoor viewing platform. The lodge building is large enough to cater for sizeable groups needing banqueting tables, but still allows smaller individual groups to spread out in the various different areas for privacy. Here guests can relax and savour the spectacular views and breathe in the cool fresh air of the rainforest.
The lodge consists of just 8 en-suite cottages, evenly spaced out and hidden in the foliage. Each cottage has either double or twin beds (complete with hot water bottles), a bathroom with flushing toilets, hot and cold running water. All have private verandas where guests can enjoy their morning tea or coffee as they watch out over the forest canopy.
What could be more of a highlight than stumbling upon the endangered mountain gorilla in its natural habitat? From the Engagi Lodge - Bwindi, you can join a tour into the Impenetrable Forest and track these unbelievable animals - the sight really will take your breath away! Oh, and did we mention that Bwindi is the only place in Africa where chimpanzees and gorillas co-exist - so get the best of both primates!
