Midrange lodge in Bwindi for 2010

Work has begun on construction of a mid-range tented lodge, in a spectacular setting at Murushasha right on the edge of the forest. The lodge is situated between Butogota and Ruhija on the eastern side of the park and is conveniently placed for gorilla tracking at Buhoma, Ruhija (both less than 1 hrs drive) or to newly habituated groups in the immediate area. Chimpanzees, and at least 5 species of monkey are regular seen from the site and the area is extremely rich in birdlife. It is intended to build 4-5 luxury tents on wooden platforms overlooking the forest, as well as a restaurant, gym, and, eventually, a swimming pool. Prices will be in the range of $60-70 p person p night. The lodge, provisionally called Cuckooland Tented Lodge, is expected to open at the end of 2010.
