In The Middle Of The Jungle
Situated in the area bordering the magnificent Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in Uganda, Engagi Lodge not only boasts uninterrupted views over this green forest canopy but also has a low impact on the environment. Built from locally sourced materials by members of the surrounding communities, Engagi blends in with its surroundings and offers a naturally rustic atmosphere that complements the beautiful forest. Explore this forest as you go on private walking trails around the lodge and down to the nearby river. Pay a visit to the working tea farm on the premises and take a tour of the plantations for a unique insight into one of Uganda’s biggest industries.
Known worldwide, the forest is one of the richest ecosystems in Africa and the diversity of species is a feature of the park. The park provides habitat for some 120 species of mammals, 346 species of birds, 202 species of butterflies, 163 species of trees, 100 species of ferns, 27 species of frogs, chameleons, geckos and many endangered species. The park is an ancient sanctuary for colobus monkeys, chimpanzees and many birds (such as hornbills and Turacco). It is perhaps most known for the 340 Bwindi gorillas, half the world’s population of critically endangered Mountain Gorillas. The Engagi Lodge Bwindi is perfectly situated to be used as a base for your visit to this remarkable national treasure sanctuary.
