Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Uganda
Mahogany Springs Lodge enjoys one of the finest locations in Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Seven large thatched cottages overlook the clear waters of the Munyanga River and face the dense jungles of the national park that’s home to half the world’s endangered mountain gorillas. The lodge combines privacy, serenity, scenery and exceptional comfort to create a gorilla and birding safari base that has few peers. Every room at Mahogany Springs is a spacious suite, with large double doors and windows that bring the outdoors in. Each suite has a balcony overlooking the verdant valley. Suites have hardwood floors, minimalist wood beds with crisp white linens, writing desks and bathrooms with terra cotta mosaic-tiled showers. The main building features high ceilings under thatch and wrap-around terraces that survey the panorama of river and forest. Enjoy a glass of wine at the impressive wooden bar, or relax in front of the double-sided fireplace with a book or board game from the library.
