One must first make sure that they are fully aware of the type of gorilla trekking permit they have been issued before discussing about the lodging in Bwindi impenetrable national park, as the type of permit you have will determine what kind of lodging you can acquire. These lodging/accommodation facilities, often known as lodges, are located in the four distinct gorilla trekking regions of Ruhija, Rushaga, Buhoma, and Nkiringo. Below is a list and classification of the suggested lodges in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.

Sector Lodges in Ruhija
Ruhija is one of Uganda’s four gorilla tracking districts, situated in the eastern portion of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. As long as they match the requirements—valid gorilla permits, age, and health—visitors can explore the three habituated gorilla families in this region on a daily basis. There were once just two gorilla families in Ruhija that could be tracked: the Oruzogo and Bitukura families. The Kyaguliro family was the third group, habituated primarily for study, but it is now also available for tracking, bringing the total number of gorilla family groups to three. Since each gorilla family group only allows 8 visitors to go for gorilla tracking, this amounts to a total of 24 gorilla permits every day. Here in Buhoma, there are several lodging options, like
