Pros: The hotel helped us to obtain the permit and also arranged the transfer services. While it took time for them to response, we could obtain the permit and also enjoyed the travel between the airport and here. They also suggested us to change our travel plan and accommodated the change. Good support of the staffs, that we liked.
Cons: When we arrived late in the night, the reception was already closed and the dinner was not provided. But the staffs did the best they could do. We also constantly listened the voices of local people late in the night and we were afraid of the strong voices.
Pros: The staff were very professional and extremely helpful!
Cons: Needs upgrade and the price but value is excessively low in comparison to others. Provide additional coal in rooms for fast burning coal. WiFi in rooms a critical mass for improvement. Food quality needs critical improvement.
Pros: Gorilla Safari Lodge is ideally situated near the Rushaga Gorilla Trekking meeting point. The drive to the Lodge is exciting, especially being on a self-drive holiday. The cottage is nice in a beautiful garden and cleanliness is OK. During diner, staff is placing briquettes in the chimney and hot water bags in bed. Might be good in cold climate, but temperatures reached 20+°C already without it...
Cons: Whereas the staff is really helpful we did not feel the same warmth as at all other places we stayed at in Uganda. Rosemary was the exception as she is a really warm person. Considering the high price we paid, we had expected more luxury and especially a higher standard restaurant. Food (breakfast and diner) was not meeting our expectation at all and the least of all places we stayed at in Uganda.
Pros: Very nice place, friendly staff, located at the heart of the mountain (1h30 hour drive in the mountain from Kisoro airstrip, for an extra 50 dollars per way to be paid to the lodge), excellent to do the Gorilla Treck in Bwindi (booking and payment can be arranged directly with the lodge) Honestly, one of the most confortable beds we have ever tried. This was extremely appreciated. Advise: 1 day for arrival + visit of the local village. 1 day for the gorilla treck. next day departure.
Cons: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner were not as good as expected, but okay. Bathroom is open to the room, so not much privacy but ok for couple of days.
Pros: We were staying here unfortunately just a short time but we loved this place so much that we would have loved to stay longer. The service is indescribable good and the food also ! Everything to be happy you can find here.
Cons: Kein Strom
Pros: Best location, close to the Bwindi national park.
Cons: The shower was a trickle, wouldn't be able to stay more than one night. Not value for money.
Pros: First it is Ugandan owned and it's great that the service is excellent. The hot water bottles are thoughtful. The staff and owner are very friendly and meals are all covered in the cost.
Cons: The sockets not being in the room so charging has to be done in one central place by all residents. Road to the place can be improved considering that gorillas are a huge source of revenue for the country.
