Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp Remote and atmospheric retreat deep within Bwindi Impenetrable Forest

The spirit of 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. Forest 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.

What we love about Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp

  • Keep an eye out for the family of gorillas that visits the camp four to six times per month.
  • After a long day of gorilla trekking, soak your tired muscles in the deep bathtub and gaze out onto a spectacular view of the forest as you relive the day’s adventures.
  • Sample the local banana beer and learn how to pluck tea leaves when you visit the local community.
