The main attraction in south-western Uganda is the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, a World Heritage Site. It is composed of 331 sq kilometers (128 sq.mi.) of both mountain and lowland forest and is accessible only on foot. The park contains half of the world's endangered mountain gorillas along with colobus monkeys, chimpanzees, over 300 species of birds and much more. Bwindi Guest House is ideally situated to take full advantage of the park and other attractions in the region.

Bwindi Community Hospital was founded in 2003 by Dr. Scott and Carol Kellermann. Formerly California residents, the Kellermanns moved to Uganda to serve the Batwa pygmies who were displaced from the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest after it was made a National Park in 1993. The work began as an outreach clinic under this tree and has grown into a 112-bed hospital providing health care and health education services to a population of over 100,000 people.
Originally the home of Dr. and Mrs. Kellerman, Bwindi Guest House evolved and grew to house the many volunteers who came to work at the hospital. Additional housing was built as the need grew and Bwindi Guest House is now comprised of six distinct houses, each of a different size and configuration to meet the needs of the various individuals, families and service groups we host.
Bwindi Guest House is available to host not just hospital volunteers but all guests who are looking for an affordable, safe and friendly environment in which to stay as they explore all the region has to offer.
The Bwindi Community Hospital Guest House, aka Bwindi Guest House is a guest service facility. As its name indicates it is owned and operated by our local hospital. It exists to support the work of doctors and volunteers within the Hospital, Nursing School and Batwa Development Program. We welcome visitors and tourists from all over the world to enjoy our homes, meals and interact with the other visitors and volunteers who also stay here. Tourists and visitors are placed in homes based on their preference and activity in the area. Most tourists are here to see the Mountain Gorillas but often are intrigued by the Batwa people or getting to know the community and life that goes on. Below is a history of our homes and how they came to be. All of them were built by long term volunteers coming to Bwindi to work with our programs. They were handed over to the Guest House to be maintained and operated for the benefit of Bwindi Community Hospital. All guests are introduced to our programs and offered a free hospital tour or a visit to our nursing school any day of the week.
