A grand and spacious accommodation option on the edge of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest where honeymooners and families alike can find privacy and comfort, Mahogany Springs has international influence perfectly woven with a Ugandan spirit.
Mahogany Springs Highlights
Mahogany Springs is built using natural materials to create a locally inspired look that blends in with its forest valley environment. The main lodge building and individual suites are disguised among the foliage, fully absorbing guests in nature’s embrace while taking care of every comfort. Stone pathways lead from each spacious room to the grand main guest area, which is all about the tangled forest views, blooming gardens, and the exclusive river frontage which Mahogany Springs enjoys. The wrap-around terrace welcomes panoramic views, which are enjoyed while sipping on a refreshment from the well stocked bar, or indulging in a masterpiece dish from the internationally acclaimed chef leading the kitchen team.
- The suites can be adapted to fit for twin, double, or triple occupancy and are arranged according to superior, honeymoon, and presidential suites.
- The Presidential suite can accommodate families of four in two bedrooms and has two en suite bathrooms, a terrace with a view of the river, and a large living area.
- The honeymoon suite has the addition of a large bath tub and was added after Mahogany Springs was voted as the top pick for a Bwindi Forest gorilla safari experience.
- The gardens are abundant and wild, and there are organic vegetable gardens that supply the lodge with fresh produce.
Mahogany Springs Game Viewing and Activities
The environment at Mahogany Springs is all about natural and personal enrichment. Wildlife and cultural activities add incredible value to this Ugandan experience as a whole. Gorilla trekking takes place from inside the national park which is a short drive away and must be booked in advance. This is an iconic experience not to be missed, but for guests spending a couple of nights at Mahogany Springs, there is a variety of nature walks, guided birding tours, tree planting activities, and cultural experiences with the Batwa tribe, who were the original people of the forest and only vacated their indigenous homes around 15 years ago. Bird-watching at the river in front of the lodge is out of this world, and twitchers are known to spot 100 species in one day from this location. Some of the greats include bar-tailed trogon, Gruel’s rush warbler, Wilcock’s honey-guide, yellow-eyed black flycatcher, and kivu ground thrush.
An old-fashioned English farm-style lodge in the lush equatorial African surroundings, Ndali Lodge is steeped in history and preserved in its simplicity. This is a base from which to explore Kibale Forest, Bigodi Wetland, and working tea estates in southwestern Uganda.
One of only two lodges based inside the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, Buhoma Lodge is surrounded by natural wildlife and dense vegetation, and everything from its physical structure to its services and comforts are locally sourced and sustainably built.
