We stayed for 2 nights as part of our exodus trip to see the gorillas. Camp within the forest so great views but the tents have rainforest dampness about them. The tents are small and there is nowhere to store or hang clothes which is annoying. Good showers with hot water. Staff very friendly and attentive, food good. Enjoyed our... More

We did our Gorilla trekking in Buhoma, Uganda this August and had the best of time spending the 1 hour with the beautiful mountain gorillas...A once in a lifetime experience for sure and well worth the price!!! To add to the experience, we stayed at Buhoma community camp which is a great budget option in an otherwise expensive area....We even... More

The rest camp is very basic. The room was small with two twin-size beds and bathroom facilities. There is little to no room to move around and no where to put your luggage. The floor was a bit dirty/muddy when we entered and the toilet had a small leak. The shower was basic but worked. They heat the water with... More

Comfortable, clean, with beautiful views and an enthusiastic and attentive staff. For a "budget" stay in Bwindi, my wife and I found the camp a wonderful deal. The food was stand-out as well; the first night we were served really beautifully seasoned tilapia filets, and the second I enjoyed tender, well-marinated flank steak, both nights with tasty and filling side...

We had booked our Uganda safari through Sandfield Travel due to their budget price with our focus being on the animal experiences rather than the quality of accommodation and as such were extremely pleased with the quality of the Buhoma Community Rest Camp. Set in the heart of the community and tropical rain forest with great views and surrounded by... More

This is a very basic camp with a mix of tents (that were cold at night) and some rooms. Unfortunately ours was a bit reminiscent of a cell, with concrete walls, windows that didn't shut and a sliding panel in the door to work the lock. There is no power in the rooms, but batteries etc can be charged in... More

After a long journey from Lake Mburo to Bwindi via Queen Elizabeth National Park, we arrived at 7pm to a warm welcome and refreshing passionfruit juice. Dinner was all about portion size. My boyfriend just about managed but I only needed the soup rather than the main of carbohydrates which also came. The site seems to have expanded to accommodate... More

This is as the name says a 'camp' and it is right in the rain forest. If you are looking for luxury then don't come here. However I was on a Gorilla trek and to stay in a place like this makes it all the more special. I stayed in Chameleon one of the permanent tents with a fantastic view... More
