The charming property, inspired by traditional design and building techniques, has been re-imagined in 2019: the lounge, dining room, and gardens have been remodeled, and two new deluxe Banda’s have been launched.
The luxury Banda’s reflect the magic of the aesthetic traditions of the Bufimbira people, with their distinct colours. Each Banda has an en-suite luxury shower room, fireplace and private porch.
A stone, wood and thatch build, Mount Gahinga Lodge consists of a main lodge and 9 sleeping Banda’s. The main lodge which boasts Wi-Fi access includes a newly built sun room (lounge), bar, dining area, old lounge and library.
The circular sun room is characterized by locally sourced lightweight seating, colorful cushions, plenty of natural light and beautiful wooden floors. Behind, the rest of main lodge is dominated by a centrally positioned open log fire, and possesses a similar taste in furnishings. Both rooms are airy, spacious and very welcoming.
A mix of local produce, fresh fish, meat and vegetables, the food is superb, and much commented on by guests, as is the service.
