Mahogany Springs Lodge Bwindi Uganda
Mahogany Springs Lodge Bwindi Uganda is a luxurious accommodation facility situated in Buhoma near the Munyanga River with panoramic and breathtaking views of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is situated in the Virunga Volcanoes mountain range and is located in southwestern Uganda on the edge of the western Rift Valley.
The lodge may be accessed by an hour flight direct to Kihihi airstrip from Entebbe International Airport, followed by 1½ hours road transfer to the lodge. It is possible to drive from Entebbe too, but this journey is quite long (12–15 hours) and you might like to allow two days for it.
Mahogany Springs Lodge Bwindi Uganda comes in three categories; Superior Suite, Honeymoon Suite, and Family Suite which is also the Presidential Suite.
The Superior Suites can be Twin, Double, or Triple. These suites are spacious with large double doors, beautiful windows, power points & dressing table/desk. Each Suite has its own private exquisitely designed terrace with panoramic views of the surrounding area. All suites have large en-suite bathrooms with a gorgeously designed open terracotta shower.
Honeymoon Suite – The room has the same design and features as the Superior Suites with a few little added extras including a larger bed and a bathtub in addition to the shower.
The Presidential/Family Suite – The Presidential Suite can be twin, Double, Triple, or Quadruple. With 2 bedrooms, 2 en-suite bathrooms, a spacious living room, and a large private terrace that overlooks the river and faces the forest this suite is designed for guests seeking the very best.
There are power points in the living room and bedrooms as well as 2 desks/ dressing tables. There is also an advanced mosquito net system in both bedrooms. Absolute privacy mixed with complete spaciousness.
The communal building is a classic timber, stone, and thatch structure, containing an open-plan lounge, restaurant, and bar. The lounge features plenty of comfortable seating around coffee tables, as well as a super-cozy double-sided fireplace.
In the restaurant, separate tables are flanked by smart upright chairs and pleasantly decorated with local fabrics and flowers. The bar is well stocked, and all areas flow out onto a terrace for al fresco dining and marveling at the spectacular scenery.
Mahogany Springs has a shop too, where you can purchase craft items, clothing, and souvenirs. And the gorgeous gardens include a fire-pit area, perfect for morning and evening gatherings when guests tuck into a few drinks and share stories of the day’s experience.
Activities at the Mahogany Springs Lodge include; Gorilla Tracking, Bird Watching, Tree Planting, Various nature walks, Community tours, Garden tours, Meeting the Batwa (Pigmies), etc. Sit on your terrace or down by the river to absorb the stunning panoramic views and allow your imagination to float off into a world of divine relaxation.
