Situated 2000 meters above sea level, Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge is not only Uganda’s highest lodge, but also the most remote, beautiful and intimate. Built of volcanic stone, every cottage has a large sitting room with a fireplace, vast overstuffed armchairs, hand-woven carpets, and unique art from local Ugandans.
Here you can sit on a ridge, above the clouds, and look across the Virunga Volcanoes while the primordial, mysterious and impenetrable Bwindi forest stretches out behind you.
As you sit and soak in the view, your personal butler is lighting the fire in your cottage and setting out your freshly laundered clothes from the day’s gorilla trek. At the same time, a gorgeous dinner is being prepared for you in the kitchen with ingredients from the onsite organic garden.
During your stay at Clouds, tracking gorillas should be at the top of your list. But while you are here, stay and immerse yourself in the relaxed environment of the lodge, partake in community activities, indulge in massage treatments and just enjoy the rarity of being pampered in such a spectacular setting.
