Volcanoes Safaris announces the re-launch of the Mount Gahinga Lodge, nestled in the foothills of the Virunga volcanoes in Southwest Uganda. Guests now have the unique opportunity to participate in a variety of new programs with the indigenous Batwa community – a special experience available at the lodge for the first time. The Mount Gahinga Lodge will feature exclusive Batawa experiences such as an agricultural project, folk dancing, interactive nature practices and vocational skills.
The newly renovated interiors of the bandas resemble traditional African huts and now have luxurious amenities including a fireplace, private terrace and an upgraded bathroom. Guests will find long-held local themes and traditions reflected in the solar powered bandas and the use of Kitenge textiles boasting traditional, vibrant African colors and complex patterns. Additionally, guests will have the chance to embark on mountain gorilla and golden monkey tracking.
