We stayed at the Rushaga camp for 2 nights and had an amazing stay at this remote location and yet the camp is only a 3 minutes drive from the gate to the park. The rooms are cosy and clean and have incredible views to forest and farmland. The staff was always very serviceminded and supportive; thankx for for preparing hot water bottles for our beds to keep us warm (nights were quite chilly) . The food at the restaurant was delicious too. We highly recommend a stay here!

We had a nice tented room with a great shower and balcony although I am not sure if the tent concept is suitable as sometimes it can get very noisy at night because of drunk local people. The location is great, very close to the Gorilla tracking and the two managers are very friendly. What we did not like at this place was the atmosphere in the dining room; very crowded and with a cheap package tourist feeling. Food was between good and not nice. Some of the waiters didn't seem to be trained well as they were rather unfriendly. Breakfast somehow came across as stingy as they wouldn't let us order what we liked (they considered the combination of ordering those two particuliar dishes as not possible) and e.g. just served a tiny glass of fruit juice (and not every morning). I would not stay there again.

Bit disappointing as showers were nothing but a dribble and the food was honestly pretty mediocre compared to other lodges. They advertise a gym and swimming pool, but that entire section of the lodge lays pretty much in ruin. However special mention for the staff and in particular the lady at the reception; she managed to stand out with her kindness, which is quite impressive in a country where everyone is friendly to begin with. Well located but in terms of value for money it might not be the best option ($200 for a normal room, $300 for a cottage).

Rustic and comfortable with many amenities. The room was adorable with great view of Biwindi Forest. Very friendly staff. Elizabeth, the manager was very friendly and helpful, caring for our needs. We called her “Queen Elizabeth”. The staff offered to wash our shoes for a very small fee as everyone comes with muddy shoes from the Gorilla Trekking. That is a plus on itself, trust me. The restaurant is fantastic - a four course delicious meal. Pool, spa - wonderful massage to relax after the trekking for a fee, also very nice. Beautiful property. Loved everything!

We stayed at the Rushaga camp for 2 nights and it was an amazing stay. The rooms have incredible views right into the impenetrable forest and are very cozy and clean. We were surprised by the constant availability of warm water and electricity despite the remote location of the camp. The staff was always very nice and supportive and they always prepared some hot water bottles for us and placed them on the bed to keep the bed cozy and warm (nights can get quite chilly in Bwindi). The food at the restaurant was delicious too. Moreover, the camp is only a 3 minutes drive from the gate to the park. Would definitely recommend a stay here!
