Buhoma Community Rest Camp is a nice affordable place to stay when visiting the Buhoma region of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. It is a community project that was established to benefit the people of Buhoma.
Buhoma Community Rest Camp has six safari tents that are self-contained and have a small balcony with a view of the forest. There are two fully furnished cottages, five twin cottage bandas that are not self-contained, and a camping site for those who enjoy being close to nature. All bandas are constructed from local materials and have African architectural designs.
The restaurant and bar are located in the reception building. The restaurant offers both international and regional cuisine that has been expertly prepared by a professional chef while the bar has a good selection of beers, water, sodas, spirits, and wines.
In case you need to buy a souvenir, there is also a craft shop stocked with wood sculptures, woven bags, baskets, and local fabrics.
The camp is a 2-minute walk from the headquarters of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, making gorilla trekking convenient. It’s also a great spot for bird watchers, as you can see a variety of birds from the terrace.
It is worthwhile to visit the Buhoma community village. Experience exciting activities such as banana brewing, handcraft making, butterfly viewing, cultural dances, and singing.
