Our Top Eco Lodging in East Africa with Photos and Reviews
Booking your safari at the top eco-friendly lodges and camps in Africa helps create jobs for local community members. COVID-19 had a devastating impact (hopefully temporary) on tourism and the local communities that rely on it for financial support.
Best Eco Lodges in East Africa
Singita Kwitonda Lodge
On the outskirts of Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park, the majestic Singita Kwitonda Lodge was built with the highest care for its breathtaking setting. Kwitonda, one of Rwanda’s top eco-lodges, puts its visitors within easy reach of a life-changing gorilla trekking adventure.
This environmentally friendly lodge offers a designated Conservation Room, an engaging instructional area run by professional conservationists. It offers visitors a distinctive viewpoint on critically endangered mountain gorillas and their natural habitat.
Kyambura Gorge Lodge
At the base of the Rwenzori Mountains, within a former coffee plantation and estate, Kyambura Lodge is the product of a delicately restored coffee-processing and drying shed. One of the best eco-lodges in Uganda, this opulent facility is situated on the outskirts of Kyambura Gorge, a sanctuary for critically endangered chimpanzees.
To protect the local biodiversity, the lodge started the Kyambura Gorge Eco-tourism Project in 2009. The Volcanoes Safaris Partnership Trust has recently strengthened the initiative, which has been essential to the survival of the chimpanzee population in Kyambura Gorge.
