Gorilla Forest Camp
Bwindi Impenetrable Forest
Gorilla Forest Camp has eight stylish and spacious tents which is exactly what is needed after a day spent tracking gorillas. Each tent features two queen sized beds and an en-suite bathroom. The large bathtub looks straight into the jungle canopy as well as an indoor shower. Each room has a hairdryer as well as a personal butler to attend to guests needs.
In the main area, guests can sit around the campfire at night and enjoy Bwindi’s crystal clear mountain sky. A small gift shop in the main area offers many local artifacts as well as practical supplies. There is also a spa that offers a variety of treatments. Complimentary Wi-Fi is available in the main lounge. Electricity supply is a combination of silent packed generator and battery system.
Guests celebrating their honeymoon will receive special surprises during their stay. The honeymoon service includes:
• Private dinner by the spa with a private bonfire
• Bubble bath with flower petals and sparkling wine after your gorilla trek
• Spa Treatments
Children of all ages are welcome at Forest Camp. Children aged 15 and younger are required to share with an adult. All eight rooms can convert to triples. Child minding is available upon request (this person is not a registered child minder). This is charged at a nominal fee which is paid to the child minder. The minimum age for gorilla trekking is 15 years. Children aged 5-11 may go on certain game drives though this is at the discretion of the Camp Manager.
