Hero Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge

Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge

Discover Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge

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 Virunga 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 you can walk from your cottage to the trailhead where they will start and end your gorilla tracking day.
