Bakiga Lodge is part of Bakiga Community Project, NGO. As such, all profits of the lodge are used for the community development work of the project. We construct springs and community water tanks to assist rural communities to access water. To date we have helped over 150,000 people to access water.

From our beginnings, it was important for us to construct Bakiga Lodge and run it to be as eco friendly as possible.

We collect all our water from rain harvesting tanks at the lodge.  This water is used for the client showers, flushing toilets, washing bedding and cleaning the lodge. We currently have 10 water harvesting tanks at the lodge. We encourage our guests to use the water we have carefully. All our power comes from solar panels on the roof of the lodge. We refuse to use generators – they pollute with fumes and noise. We collect and recycle all the plastic bottles used at the lodge. The steep grounds of the lodge have been terraced and planted to help avoid soil erosion.

Pride in Excellent Service

Beautiful views close to the gorillas Bakiga lodge has an absolutely stunning view of sunrise and sunset over the mountains inside Bwindi. We were about a 5 minute drive from where the trek began so didn’t have to endure a long drive before a long hike. The staff were friendly and the food was very delicious. They even packed us a protein packed lunch to take for the trek! We also purchased some merchandise from the craftsmen’s shop right in the lodge!

A mountain retreat with friendly, helpful staff Wonderful staff and a very special location. This ecolodge is supporting conservation and community development whilst providing great accommodation. I have been treated like a guest of honour. Meals, drinks, and information have all been readily available. And they even filled by thermos so I could enjoy my book and a hot drink on my private terrace. I have slept so well listening to rain on the tin roof. It’s not fancy, but for me that is a plus. Would definitely recommend it, and no hesitation in staying here as a woman travelling alone.

Great ! Very nice community accommodation, very well maintained. Comfortable bungalows, individual terraces, Spectacular views from the bungalows, starting with their showers. Only lighting is lacking, particularly in the bathrooms.

Tranquil experience in the Bwindi forest national park A beautiful lodge with a good course. Not only this lodge offers great views, tranquility and peace, they are also purpose driven. They assist the community in obtaining water by setting up tanks. The staff if very helpful (please do ask for the village tour once you are there and see the wonderful work the lodge is doing in the community, it comes at no additional costs - the team is always happy to provide this).

Peaceful, stunning views of blind forest close to mountain gorilla trekking area Bakiga Lodge is located in the small town of Ruhija - one of the entry points to the Bwindi Park to see the mountain gorillas. It is a wonderful setting on the hillside with stunning views over the forest and looking at the sunsets to the west. The rooms are spacious and can accommodate several people if needed. The meals were very good and cooked fresh daily. there is bottled water provided. coffee and tea are available all day long in the lodge eating area. They also are engaged in local community water conservation and the lodge works on solar power. Definitely a place i will go back to

Stay at Bakiga for your gorilla trekking experience! We had a fantastic time staying at Bakiga Lodge. Allan, in particular, provided amazing service and was very friendly. The location was great, and the views were incredible. Really made you feel at home when staying there. They also support the local community through the items they sell at the lodge. Would highly recommend.

Beautiful location and great rooms The location of this lodge is so beautiful, I wish we could have stayed there longer. The views are amazing, the houses/ rooms are spacious and authentically designed. The staff was friendly and professional, giving us an a quick history of the lodge and community projects it supported to date. We also appreciated the fact that they use solar power for electricity and that by staying in this lodge you are supporting a local community.

Beautiful lodge with caring staff Beautiful lodge in the mountains with spectacular view. The staff are friendly and thoughtful, with lots of little touches to make the stay more enjoyable. Like warm towels on arrival, hot water bottles for keeping warm at night and lots of other small gestures. The lodge also supports community development.
