Mount Gahinga Lodge is a charming, magical property, inspired by traditional design and build techniques, reflecting the aesthetic traditions of the Bufimbira people.
We are delighted the lodge has received recognition in the Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards recently, as the 5th best safari lodge in Africa!
The lodge is the perfect base for your gorilla trek, with access on foot from the lodge up into the Mgahinga National Park, where the wonderful Nyakagezi gorilla family live, led by a Silverback called Mark.
Tracking chimpanzees in their natural habitat, as they swing from the branches in the canopy high above the forest floor is nothing short of exhilarating. The chimps effortlessly cross and scamper through the trees above the gorge, and visitors on the other hand must cross the river using natural bridges in order to keep up with the chimps. So although the walk usually lasts only 2–3 hours, descending the steep gorge and crossing the log bridges over the river requires some agility and fitness.
Chimpanzee tracking is also available in nearby Kalinzu, a forest reserve 30 minutes drive from Kyambura Gorge Lodge where there is a community of about 40 habituated chimpanzees.
