Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge
Bwindi National Park
Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge is ideally located on the border of Bwindi National Park. This allows very easy access to the areas where gorilla families live and most of the treks begin from the lodge itself.
The lodge is remote, beautiful and intimate. The lodge is a pioneering eco tourism lodge that has been built in partnership with Nkuringo Community. Staff are employed from the local community and provide excellent service in a cosy atmosphere. The main lodge has high ceilings with thick exposed beams and large windows for the views of the forest.
Guests at Clouds stay in large cottages built of local volcanic stone. Each cottage has a large sitting room with double-sided fireplace a private veranda and comfortable bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. There are 5 double cottages and 2 family cottages each with 2 private bedrooms and en suite bathrooms.
Sweeping views stretch all the way to the Virunga Volcanoes of Rwanda, as well as across the border into the Congo where the glow of Nyiragongo Volcano can be seen on clear nights. Using fresh ingredients from the local community garden meals are simply delicious. The main lodge dining room has a large fire for evening meals or can be served within the privacy of your own cottage.
