Each new deluxe banda has been completely redesigned to create a luxury bedroom and sitting room. The 52 square-metre extended banda offers an unparalleled experience for honeymoon couples and families alike.
Each deluxe banda is complete with a fireplace and extended window seating area, overlooking the forest. The organic design of the Deluxe Bandas reflects the local building style. Neutral colours, reflecting the natural surrounding environment are blended with traditional vibrant kitenge materials combining contemporary design with a twist of Africa.
Overlooking the primeval Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Volcanoes’ Bwindi Lodge offers a truly unique jungle safari experience. Trails through the property allow guests to savour the tranquillity of the forest. Watch out for the gorillas who often visit the lodge! Go for a bracing dip in the chilly water hole and for walks through community land.
Praveen Moman, Founder of Volcanoes Safaris, commented on the new deluxe bandas:
“Originally opened in 1999 as a basic tented camp, Bwindi Lodge today is the most luxurious and stylish lodge in the northern part of Bwindi, near Buhoma. Guests find the spectacular setting overlooking the forest, warm service, quiet elegance and extensive trails delightful”.
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.
