Having completely renovated the original Buhoma Homestead and now offer a high quality intimate lodge. Situated within the National Park, a five minutes walk from where the gorilla treks start.

Inside the spacious cottages are comfortable beds, a well appointed en suite bathroom with flushing toilet and a hot shower and also some rooms have a bath tub. The main area of the lodge consists of an elevated lounge area, complete with bar and dining facilities, offering a cosy and comfortable environment.
