Trackers Safari Lodge
Trackers Safari Lodge is a modern, luxury property situated on a hilltop overlooking Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, just five minutes drive from the park gate.
Accommodation is provided in log cabins with thatched roofs and wooden floors. Each is equipped with modern amenities and bathrooms, and a terrace overlooking the verdant forest floor. The superior rooms even have their own private jacuzzi.
A big benefit for those travelling as a family is the large swimming pool. At the time of writing, this is the only swimming pool in Bwindi and is for exclusive use by lodge guests.
The poolside clubhouse is furnished with a bar, gym, steam room and massage sala.
At the lodge’s highest point sits the expansive bar and restaurant area. Perched on the top floor, the bar has a huge fireplace as its centerpiece. Outside the balconies have panoramic views of the forest below. A wonderful spot to unwind after a day’s gorilla trekking.
Activities from Trackers Safari Lodge include, of course, gorilla trekking. Guests staying a little longer will likely enjoy exploring the nearby trails, spotting the many species of primate and bird that call this part of Uganda home.
Golfers can be driven 45 minutes to the 18-hole golf course near Kihihi airstrip. The lodge also has strong links with many of the local community projects established in this area, including Ride 4 a woman and a tree nursery project.
