Intro: Mount Gahinga Lodge

8 Gahinga Main InteriorNestled in the foothills of the Virunga Volcanoes, Mount Gahinga is an exclusive Uganda adventure lodge that has the impressive backdrop of three of the volcanoes themselves. Its rustic charm creates an absorbing atmosphere of tranquility and history. Each of our Uganda luxury safari lodges were built to echo local techniques and design.

Here is a recap of what our clients have said in the past few months after their stay with us.

“The food prepared by Innocent the chef was amazing. He could be chef in any five star restaurant

In the US, The best food I have had on my trip. I have ben blessed to travel to many places in the world. My stay at Mt Gahinga has been among my top 3 favorites out of hundreds of lodges and hotels over the past 30 years. The reason for this is the warm, caring and attentive service I received from Amron Turyagyenda. I am travelling alone (64 year old female) and he has made me feel welcome and safe. He spent so much of his time with me, answering all of my questions. I have found everyone extremely knowledgeable, very professional and so very caring and also interesting! What a combination!!!!

Randazoo-Gahinga Lodge-2015029My thanks to Volcanoes Safaris for their brilliant choice of Amron as manager for Mt Gahinga. Amron’s warm hospitality has made Mount Gahinga my favorite of all of the Volcanoes’ lodges. I hope to be back very soon, If I am lucky. I will be sure to take the time to write a review on Trip Advisor. Many thanks. “- Sherry Bower.

Safari Activities

Chimpanzee Tracking

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.
