Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge
Clouds Gorilla Lodge is arguably the most luxurious property in all of Uganda. At over 6,500 feet above sea level, it is Uganda’s highest lodge. The lodge has stunning views of the Virunga volcanoes in Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo, including the active volcano in Goma that glows red at night. The lodge consists of 8 cottages, 2 of which are family cottages. Built of volcanic rock, the cottages are spacious with sitting rooms and a fireplace. The main lodge has high ceilings, exposed beams, and large windows with endless views over the treetops and mountains. We recommend submitting to total relaxation after tracking gorillas and enjoying the available spa and beauty treatments. This is the perfect place for honeymooners.
The main draw to Bwindi is, of course its gorilla trekking. Clouds is conveniently located adjacent to the Nkuringo trailhead. As there is only one gorilla family in this area and it’s quite a steep hike to access them we recommend that guests trek from Rushaga which has a few more families. In addition to gorilla trekking, you can also partake in community activities with the Batwa which is a unique experience.
