has a small restaurant where visitors will enjoy tasty wholesome meals freshly prepared. Foodstuffs are purchased locally where possible to benefit the community.
Hot water is prepared for bathing but please
Note: water is a scarce commodity in Nkuringo by virtue of the camp sitting on a ridge some 700m above the Kashasha River at 2160m ASL. A 25km round trip by vehicle to the village of Rubuguri is required to collect water in order to service the camp during the dry season months. Rain water harvesting is conducted across the camp from all metallic roofs but it isn’t enough to to meet the demands of water needs throughout the year.
By virtue of the altitude of the camp the presence of mosquitoes are very rare,so it is possible to enjoy cool evenings.
At Nkuringo Gorilla Camp there is an electrical generator as the power source for the provision of charging batteries for cameras and phones. The unit is run in the evenings for an hour or so. We do however recommend visitors to go with an additional camera battery or a provision to charge via the DC output on their vehicle if traveling with a safari operator.
