The lodge idea was introduced in 2002, when the Uganda Wildlife Authority, along with IGCP and AWF, sought to address human–gorilla conflict in the region. What resulted was a high-end lodge based on gorilla tourism, co-owned by a private operating partner and the local communities—represented by the Nkuringo Community Conservation and Development Foundation (NCCDF). This unique partnership was facilitated by IGCP and AWF.
