Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp
Set on a flat ridge deep within Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp is a remote and atmospheric mountain sanctuary.
The only accommodation located within the national park, the camp boasts an unrivalled location with exceptional wildlife and birdlife viewing opportunities. Eight tents feature queen sized beds and generous bathtubs that look out onto the forest canopy. Guests can sample delicious fare or enjoy an evening drink in the cosy bar and dining cottage overlooking the rainforest.
In fine weather, meals are served al fresco on a raised natural platform that blends into the surroundings. A small gift shop offers a selection of locally sourced handcrafts. Forests walks to Munyaga waterfall, as well as an interactive community visit are included, while gorilla trekking and birding walks can be arranged at an additional cost.
