Ruhija Gorilla Safari Lodge

You are Here: › Ruhija Gorilla Safari Lodge

Ruhija Gorilla Safari Lodge in Bwindi forest national park Uganda was perhaps not the most formally run of places we stayed at, in that it is no 5 star hotel. However the friendliness of all the staff more than makes up for it.

The rooms are very nice, clean and comfortable. Often we returned to our room to find different arrangements of petals on the bed!

At times in the bar staff would join you for a chat, or show you which windows ill to balance your mobile on to get signal! The place was very relaxed, just what you needed after a tiring trek.

It was good to be able to relax and have a drink, and not worry about what you looked like afterwards as you would do in one of the fancier lodges!

They cleaned our walking boots when we got back from the trek too which was a very nice touch.

We were unsure what to pack for the gorilla trek.

Definitely need walking boots, if not for the grips but to protect your ankles when you fall (because you will it's just a question of how many times!).

You need a waterproof jacket, just a thin one would do as it on and off quickly with the rain.

Gardening gloves are essential as when you are on tough terrain, just climbing over branches and and holes you will find yourself grabbing onto branches for support, and sometimes these are spiky!

Lightweight trousers are fine. Also, take a porter.

Only 15 dollars, they will help you on tough terrain but even worthwhile just to carry your bag.

There is true beauty in the world, if only people would open their eyes and see it.
