Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge

Explore Uganda

Positioned in the southern part of the ethereal Bwindi National Park, Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge is guaranteed to take your breath away; combining luxury accommodation with sweeping panoramic views of the magnificent Virungan Volcanoes and the Great Rift Valley.

Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge offers 8 stone cottages including 2 double-roomed family units. The cottages are large with en suite bathrooms (including showers), a patio area, private garden and lounge with a double-sided fire place. All rooms look out upon the Virunga Volcanoes.

The main lodge features soaring ceilings, massive exposed wooden beams and big picture windows with endless views of treetops, volcanoes and mountains. Housed within this area is a cosy library and lounge area, a dining area, lush botanical garden and sheltered verandas. The lodge serves tasty dishes using fresh local produce.

An advantage of Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge is that guests can walk from their cottage to the trailhead where they will start and end their gorilla tracking day. Please note however that the Nkuringo group of gorillas which is the group that visitors will track here is a challenging group of gorillas to visit, and the walk may take at least 4 hours to reach the group.

How to get to Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge

By road the lodge is approximately 11 hours from Kampala and 12.5 hours from Entebbe. Charter and scheduled flights travel into the airstrip in Kisoro (34 kms from the lodge).
