 Budongo Eco-Lodge in the Heart of Budongo Forest. Budongo Eco Lodge provides comfortable, clean lodging at a moderate and budget price for those who add on a day or two to their Murchison Falls Park Safari  in one of their well-kept cottages or in their small dorms of four to a room on bunk bed.

Budongo Eco-Lodge is the perfect springboard into the various activities at Budongo Forest Reserve such as Chimpanzee Tracking, or take part in an all day Chimpanzee Habituation Experience during the off-season (Minimum Age for both is 15).  Budongo Eco-Lodge is also a great place, if not one of the best places in Uganda that you can venture out from for a half-day or full day of birding with expert guides.  Budongo Forest Eco-Lodge is the place from where you can start some great forest walks and nature Walks and when you come back enjoy a good meal and a cold drink for refreshment rest in your cottage and enjoy the forest setting that is all around you.

The cottages are self-contained with en-suite bath while the dorms use shared bath facility and the beauty of either is not only the setting, the comfort of the room, the quietness around you only broken by the sounds of nature, but the level of service, the freshly brewed coffee, the delightful brownies that go with a good cup but breakfast, lunch and dinner, delightful meals either International Recipes or Ugandan dishes that will give you some energy for another nature hike, or a half day of birding.

The only thing missing are some trails where you can go off on a mountain bike through the mahogany and ironwood forest, that would make it even a better place.

Once you have completed your activities here there are some close by places you can add-on to your time here such as a visit to the nearby Boomu Women’s Group and the a look at traditional village life, or an overnight stay in a traditional African Village.  One cannot forget a visit to Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary where you track Rhinos on Foot.

Budongo Eco-Lodge in the Heart of Budongo Forest is a nice place to stay right within the forest while you are chimpanzee tracking, or do the all-day Chimpanzee Habituation Experience while staying at the Eco-Lodge. Besides the food is pretty good here, at times you will even spot Brownies.
