Nestled in the heart of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in Uganda, Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge is an exquisite retreat like no other. Its unique and remote location, beauty, and intimate atmosphere set it apart as a pioneering eco-tourism hotel. This extraordinary lodge was crafted in partnership with USAID, AWF, and the Nkuringo community (NCCDF). It’s a place where indulgent service meets community immersion, and nature’s grandeur is on full display.
As you step into Clouds, you’ll be enchanted by the main lodge’s ambiance. With soaring ceilings, massive exposed wooden beams, and generous picture windows that offer endless vistas of treetops, volcanoes, and mountains, you might feel like you’re in a ski chalet in the Alps or a stone palace in the Rocky Mountains. Yet, the warm, gentle welcome from the staff and the unwavering dedication of personal butlers remind you that this enchanting experience can only be found in Uganda.
The lodge offers a range of spacious cottages constructed from local volcanic stone. Each cottage boasts a generously proportioned sitting room with a double-sided fireplace, large overstuffed armchairs, hand-woven carpets, a private verandah, and comfortable bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. Guests have the option to choose from 5 double cottages or 2 family cottages, each with 2 private bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms.
Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge provides stunning panoramic views. You’ll gaze upon the valley below and the majestic Virunga volcanoes that stretch to the horizon. On clear nights, the volcanoes might even cast a mesmerizing red glow against the night sky.
