Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp

The Sanctuary Gorilla Forest is the most luxurious property in the North of Bwindi. Occasionally visited by a gorilla family, it is a perfect base for gorilla trekking in both Buhoma and Ruhija Sectors in Northern Bwindi.

It is the most luxurious property in the north of Bwindi Impenetrable Mational Park and it is managed by Sanctuary Retreats, a travel company managing several lodges in national parks in East and Southern Africa.

The lodge is strategically positioned in an unrivalled location, just inside the gates of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. It is located within just a five minutes walk from the Buhoma Office where gorilla trekking commences from.

The 8 large en suite ‘tents’ with a bathtub looking out onto the forest are ideal after a day searching for gorillas in the forest.

The camp has a bar and dining cottage overlooking the rain-forest. Guests can sit around the campfire at night whilst enjoying the crystal clear mountain sky.
