Ruhija Gorilla Safari Lodge
is located in the Bwindi Forest
area of western Uganda
Set to the northeast of the forest at the top of a village of the same name, this mid-priced lodge is modern and relatively heavy in build.
There is a very big price difference between the three room types, standard, deluxe and superior, although whether the latter two are worth the splash is questionable.
Activities are centred on gorilla tracking, with this being probably the best lodge from which to trek the Oruzogo family although the Kyaguriro and Bitukura family can also be trekked from here.
Ruhija Gorilla Safari Lodge may not be a high-class facility ... guest reviews indicate that service levels are variable at best ... but the views are great and the area a lot less busy than around Buhoma.
