A long cherished dream of an Africa enthusiast came true in 2013: The Establishment of the lodge in the South of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest NP. Gorilla Valley Lodge is situated at the southern edge of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park on a hill near Rushaga, close to Rushaga Uganda Wildlife station.
Gorilla Valley Lodge a ‘medium range hotel’, consists of 12 rooms, with spacious private bathrooms, Toilets, Dining/Waiting area beautifully situated in lowland evergreen Forest allowing breathtaking views of the African Eden, rich with wildlife and at a close distance the majestic Virunga Volcanoes. Every room has been lovingly furnished with twin beds and decorated in a modern retro style.
Gorilla Valley Lodge is a slice of wilderness paradise far from the madding crowd; a place of renewal and reconnection with the natural world. And trust, one could never get closer to Bwindi!!!! The gentle Giants are at home at GVL, Sometimes the gorilla’s come out of the forest to spend some time feeding and playing in our gardens…… From the veranda of the rooms you can almost touch this national park and home of our mountain Gorillas.
On the highest part of the hill is the location of the main building with restaurant and bar. From here the view is amazing! In our lounge you can relax by the fire but you can also make yourself comfortable on the veranda. In the restaurant we offer the best of two worlds: an international buffet prepared by our Ugandan chef.
