Clouds Mountain Gorilla LodgeBwindi Impenetrable Forest, Uganda
Situated over 2,000 metres above sea level, Uganda’s highest lodge is situated in Nkuringo, bordering the south western corner of the Bwindi National Park. The views at Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge are outstanding with a sweeping panoramic view of the magnificent Virunga Volcanoes all the way to the Great Rift Valley.
- With only seven cottages – built of local volcanic stone – this small, remote lodge offers a perfect starting point for tracking gorillas.
- The lodge has an easy access to start your trek, as it’s only a short walk from the lodge to the Nkuringo trailhead to start your primate experience!
- While tracking gorillas is the number one reason to stay here, why not immerse yourself in the relaxed vibe, partake in community activities, enjoy the many bird species that call the area home or have a relaxing massage and just enjoy the spectacular setting.
- Sitting up on a ridge, above the clouds, looking across to the impressive Virunga Volcanoes, and experience the sight of the volcanoes, glowing red through the night sky is just heart-warming!
