Ichumbi Gorilla Lodge is blessed to be a stone throw away from Bwindi Impenetrable forest, the home of mountain gorillas. It takes only 10 minutes to get inside the park. At Rushaga you have a chance to see gorillas from 7 Gorilla families namely; Nshongi , Bweza, Busingye, Mishaya, Kahungye, newly habituated Bikingi and Bushaho families. It is also possible to drive for an hour and trek Gorillas of the Nkuringo Gorilla family. There is one Gorilla family in Mgahinga national park (2hours drive from Lodge) which we can arrange for you to track.
