All the rooms have en-suite bathrooms, large wooden beds with mosquito nets and a private veranda looking over the forest. The main living area has a central fireplace which acts as a focal point for guests to relax and discuss their gorilla tracking experience. A newly designed outdoor terrace gives dramatic views of the impenetrable forest and is a great place to spot the monkeys and birds hidden in the foliage.The lodge has a curio shop selling local handicraft. The main activity available at the lodge is gorilla trekking – there are four families of gorilla that can be tracked from the lodge.
