Why We Like This Lodge

Vibrant oasis: The gardens surrounding the lodge are filled with colourful tropical plants that make you feel as though you are staying in a small, secluded paradise.

African decor: The inside is just as colourful as outside; the lodge is tastefully decorated with local arts and crafts from the community.

Location: The lodge is conveniently located in Bigodi village on the Fort Portal-Kamwenge road. This is a good base for chimpanzee trekking, hiking in the crater lakes region and visiting the Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary.

Local produce: Kibale Forest Lodge emphasises local produce and dishes in their restaurant, and they ensure everything is freshly prepared on their à la carte menu. This is the perfect opportunity to try some local Ugandan food, or tuck into their famous full English breakfast.

There are several activities in Kibale Forest National Park to suit all interests. Kibale is East Africa's primate capital and boasts a 95% chance of encountering these intelligent creatures in their natural environment.

The lodge is conveniently located near to the Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary, a birdwatcher's haven and home to several species. Traversing the swamp on wooden walkways, you will have a great chance of spotting some rare birds, including the blue turaco, so make sure you have a good set of binoculars.

If you prefer hiking, you can trek around old crater lakes or walk to the beautiful Mahoma falls.

Local community and tea plantation visits are also popular activities.
