Why we like it

- Buhoma lodge has been designed using sustainable materials and actively supports the local community
- Eight comfortable chalets all en suite

I can easily say that nothing - nothing - in the natural world compares to an hour spent with wild mountain gorillas. An encounter with these magnificent beasts is absolutely without parallel.
