At the lodge grounds many of the birds, monkeys and butterflies that inhabit the Kibale Forest can also be found, including primates like Bush Babies, Black and White Colobus monkeys and of course the Great Blue Turaco.


Visit Bigodi Women conservation group to learn about basket weaving and how the group conserves the environment through sustainable harvesting of papyrus used in making the baskets.

Mwebesa House is in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, home to most of the mountain gorilla population of Uganda. More than 300 women from 11 villages now use or work at the Ride 4 a Woman community centre, where they can learn new skills, make a living, and make it possible for their children to gain an education. Meet these women and get involved in basket weaving, sewing with traditional fabric, preparing traditional meals and traditional dancing.
