Explore nearby Krio villages and 
take in the beauty of surrounding waterfalls with a stroll on one of our marked nature trails or laze in a hammock and admire the natural setting – the choice is yours!


Bruno Lodge
We have four lodges - two traditional roundhouses and two at tree canopy level. 

The traditional roundhouses were the first two lodges ever built at the sanctuary and are named Bruno and Julie, after the first two chimpanzees ever rescued. Bruno has a double bed and Julie two single beds. Both roundhouses have an ensuite bathroom and a veranda looking out into the rainforest. 
There are also hammocks between the lodges.

We are happy to take group bookings but please be aware that Tacugama is a relaxing destination and not suitable for spirited celebrations. As we are located in a protected wildlife forest reserve we ask our guests to respect the tranquillity of our rainforest retreat.

If for any reason you cancel your booking less than two days ahead of your stay, we will ask you to pay 50% of the lodge cost. Also please note that for payment of your stay in dollars the bills must be dated from 2001 onwards and no smaller than $10 in value. Thanks for your understanding.
