Welcome to Mount Gahinga Lodge that is perched at the base of the Virunga Volcanoes and it is a stunning luxury adventure lodge hidden in the southern corner of Uganda. Its rustic charm is inspired by traditional design and building techniques. Gahinga Lodge is the best base to go gorilla tracking, track the rare golden monkey, climbing a volcano, walks through local villages and most of all to share the culture of the Batwa pygmies the oldest inhabitants of the Central African rain forest.

The lodge with its beautiful living room, sun room and terrace has fantastic views of the volcanoes and the Kisoro valley below.

The luxury Banda’s reflect the magic of the aesthetic traditions of the Bufimbira people with their distinct colors. Each Banda has an en suite luxury shower room, fireplace and private porch.
