“Beautiful place with an attentive staff. The view from the room and from the dining room was beautiful!! My favorite lodge we stayed in Uganda. The food was AMAZING. You are walking distance to the meeting place for gorilla trekking.”
Welcome to Engagi Lodge – Bwindi
Engagi Lodge in Bwindi is a modern lodge in a breathtaking setting offering stunning views over the forest canopy. The lodge is situated in a large tract of land contiguous to the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, and runs from the main road to the Park Headquarters down to the Munyaga river.

The lodge has been built using local materials and a local workforce. It is constructed from rocks found in and around the site and eucalyptus trees while the rooms are thatched from banana fibre sourced from local farmers.
The main lodge building is divided into a bar cum sitting room, the dining room and a large outdoor verandah viewing platform. The lodge building is big enough to cater for larger groups but still allows for smaller individual groups to spread out in the various different areas for privacy.
The lodge is open ended at the front allowing a dramatic view of the Bwindi forest from every corner inside the building.
The kitchen, built away from the lodge to ensure privacy, prepares a variety of 3 course meals and clients requirements (eg. Vegetarians) catered for by our team of experienced Kampala trained chefs.
The lodge consists of just 8 en-suite cottages, spaced out and hidden in the foliage. Each cottage has either double or twin beds, a bathroom with flushing toilets and hot and cold running water. All have private verandahs where guests can enjoy their morning tea or coffee as they watch out over the forest canopy.
Electricity is provided by solar power with a back-up generator. Hot water is supplied by eco-friendly wood burning boilers.
The main reception area has been built up near the Buhoma road and we have a large secure car-park; both of these are a good distance away from the main lodge buildings.
Clients can walk around the lodge down to the river, viewing the birdlife and flora of the area.
