Nkuringo campsite facilities are basic with 5 simple twin bed rooms, 1 twin bed banda, paraffin lanterns, two bush showers and pit latrine toilets. There are several camping terraces for those looking to camp . The campsite has a cook and small restaurant where visitors can have simple meals prepared. Foodstuffs are all bought from the local vicinity to benefit the community. For those self-catering an eating shelter is available for cooking and food preparation. Hot water is arranged for bathing but please note that water is rare in Nkuringo by virtue of the campsite and bunkhouse sitting on a ridge some 700m above the Kashasha river. Porters deliver water from the river for visitors when rain water harvesting from the roofs of the bunkhouse and cottages is not sufficient to provide for demand.
At Nkuringo Gorilla camp we do not have any electrical power source at the site. Provision for the charging of batteries for cameras and phones is generally possible within the adjacent Ntumgarmo trading centre. We do however recommed vistors come with an additional camera battery or a provision to charge via the DC output on their vehicle if travelling with a safari operator.
