About Uganda Eco Lodge Safari

Uganda Eco Tours features a selection of some of the accommodation facilities in Uganda that meet the criteria to be regarded as ecologies basing on the ecotourism principles and guidelines.

We invite you to both experiment the beautifulness of our eco-lodge located on the edges of Bwindi National Park and our tailor made safaris for once-in-a-lifetime experience in The Pearl of Africa. There are two main rainy seasons of March to May as the heavy rains and September to November as light rains with intervals of some dry spells. June to August is the main dry season and December to February is the short dry period with little rain. The average temperature is 18°C during the day and falls to about 10°C at night. From the 2300m of Ruhija, you have a 360° panoramic view over an outstanding landscape composed by the Bwindi Impenetrable forest, the green and colourful hills, and the long chain of Volcanoes of Uganda, Rwanda and Republic Democratic of Congo (Mgahinga Gorilla National Park, Volcanoes National Park Rwanda, Virunga National Park). Our eco-lodge is the only with a 180°C panoramic view over the primary forest and the range of volcanoes. When you reach there, you'll be welcomed by a wonderful team fully available to make your stay an unforgettable experience and to make you feel at home. We welcome visitors every day, especially the ones who come for gorilla tracking but not only. People do generally a one stop visit to meet the gorillas and leave without taking the time to enjoy, rest and visit the region.

We search for lions, elephants, buffaloes and other wild animals in their natural habitat, before returning for lunch. In the afternoon we take on a boat cruise along the Kazinga Channel, a natural link between Lake Edward and Lake George. Thanks to the abundant birdlife that is sighted and the hundreds of hippos that are cooling off at the shores, this cruise will definitely be one of the highlights of your safari.
