Price Range: $831 pp adult sharing(FB)

Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge is an intimate luxury retreat set in the southern part of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park known as the Nkuringo Sector.

Unspoiled and untamed, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park is one of the world’s last remaining rich ecosystems. It spreads over a series of steep ridges and valleys that form a protective habitat for the mountain gorillas, the main attractions in this pristine jungle.

The Nkuringo sector of the forest is home to three mountain gorilla families. Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge provides a prime access point to the start of the unforgettable gorilla trekking experience. And about 30 minutes drive away is another trailhead, Rushaga, which has eight habituated gorilla families and is also an alternative to trekking Nkuringo gorilla groups.

Built as a conservation project between the Nkuringo community, the African Wildlife Foundation, and Wild Places safari company, this multi-award-winning remote but intimate high-end luxury lodge in Bwindi is over 2,000 meters above sea level, making Uganda’s highest safari lodge. The lodge sits on a ridge above the clouds, looking across to the Virunga volcanoes. The behind views focus on the primordial, mysterious and impenetrable forest Canopy. A personal butler takes care of all the nitty-gritty and personal welfare while you stay at Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge.

Each private cottage is built of local volcanic stone, with a spacious living room installed with a fireplace, vast overstuffed armchairs, and hand-woven carpets. Comfortable chairs on the outdoor verandas provide the perfect vantage point to admire the unforgettable vistas of the forest below. Blazing fireplaces create a cozy glow as evening falls.

Meals are prepared using the freshest local ingredients and served in front of a roaring fire in the dining area or the privacy of your stone cottage.

Accommodation at Clouds

Clouds Mountain Lodge’s private cottage is built of local volcanic stone, with a spacious living room installed with a fireplace, vast overstuffed armchairs, and hand-woven carpets. Comfortable chairs on the outdoor verandas provide the perfect vantage point to admire the unforgettable vistas of the forest below. Blazing fireplaces create a cozy glow as evening falls.

High ceilings, pale canvas furnishings, and pale wooden beams really maximize the sense of space and grandeur in the main lodge area, befitting the excellent location perfectly.

Children under the age of 15 years are not permitted by UWA to trek mountain gorillas, but we have a selection of activities to keep them busy at the lodge while you embark on your gorilla trekking experience with a dedicated baby sitter.

Activities

Apart from the gripping encounter with the gorillas of the mountain, discover the Bwindi communities, peoples, and cultures, on foot, or even hiking through the misty impenetrable jungles. You can even canoe on the nearby calm waters of Lake Mutanda and spend a few moments on one of its indescribable small islands.

End the day with sundowners on the top-of-the-world ridge. A breeze whispers through the air, cool and soothing, as you motor through the wilds and sip a refreshing cocktail. The evening is yours.
