Community Involvement

Kiho Gorilla Safari Lodge Community Involvement in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest Ruhija Sector.The remarkable growth of tourism within this enchanting region serves as a catalyst for positive change, fostering a profound transformation in the mindset of the host communities towards conservation.

At the illustrious Kiho Gorilla Safari Lodge, we proudly embody this ethos by empowering and uplifting the very communities that embrace and nurture our existence. About 95% of our esteemed staff hail from these local communities, epitomizing our commitment to inclusivity and socio-economic progress.During the construction of the lodge, an astounding 90% of the labor force was sourced from the very heart of these communities. By actively involving community members in this grand endeavor, we share with them a sense of pride and inspiration: they are an integral part of something truly remarkable.

At Kiho Gorilla Safari Lodge, we firmly believe that tourism should never be a force that takes away land or deprives host communities of their sacred homes. Instead, it should act as a beacon of hope, uplifting lives and igniting positive change within these communities. By fostering a symbiotic relationship between luxury tourism and community development, we strive to create a lasting legacy of prosperity and transformation.
