Cuckooland Bwindi Ruhija
Cuckooland Bwindi is a small, comfortable mid-range lodge in a spectacular setting, right on the edge of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park.
It has superb views overlooking the forest and is set on 10 acres of grounds.
The builders built the lodge almost entirely of locally sourced natural materials.
The accommodation consists of 4 spacious comfortably furnished double tents.
The tents are constructed on wooden platforms with a thatched roof and large veranda.
Each unit is complete with its own toilet and shower, with hot water.
The lodge is located less than 20 meters from the edge of the forest.
This provides a wonderful vantage point for viewing the prolific birdlife and different primates.
The fruiting trees at the forest edge especially attract the birds and primates.
Cuckooland Bwindi Ruhija Restaurant
The restaurant, sited with a commanding view of the surrounding forest, serves delicious food incorporating many of the organic fruits and vegetables grown on the site.
The lodge is around 2 km from the nearest other dwellings, the small settlement of Murushasha, Ruhija, and equally far from the road.
The lodge ensures complete tranquillity for visitors, with the only sounds being those of the forest.
Ruhija, the nearest gorilla tracking station, is also conveniently located 15 km (30-40mins) from Cuckooland Bwindi.
