Bwindi clouds Lodge is located in the southern part of Bwindi National Park which is situated in the Great Rift Valley. The lodge is just steps away from the trailhead for tracking the Nkuringo gorilla family.
Set on a forested ridge near the entrance to the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge boasts 10 spacious cottages built from volcanic stones located in the more quiet western section of the forest. It offers great room, service and food.
In the shadow of three volcanoes, looking down into the thick treetop canopy of Bwindi and beyond to the golden grasses of the Western Rift Valley sits the Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge. The 10 cottages, built in the traditional colonial style using volcanic rock and other local materials feature verandas and fireplaces, large beds with crisp linens and sitting areas furnished with comfy armchairs. Each cottage has an en-suite bathroom with hot water, oversized towels and bathrobes. Most importantly, they all offer unforgettably stunning views across the Virunga Volcanoes, and are the perfect warm and cosy retreat at the end of a day’s exciting trek to the mountain gorillas.
This lodge was built with the ultimate goal of protecting the natural habitat of the mountain gorilla and benefitting the community of Nkuringo who also have a defined share in the entire project.
Massage and beauty treatments, are also available, along with bird watching, guided forest walks, and delicious local delicacies fresh from the kitchen, while a private butler will ensure you have everything you need throughout your stay.
