Stay at Gorilla Forest Camp, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest
The service is excellent and the food is outstanding. There are some lovely views from the main lodge and overall it's an excellent camp within easy reach of the departure point for gorilla trekking.
Gorilla Forest Camp, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Uganda
Gorilla Forest Camp is about 3 km inside the park and nestled on a hillside amongst thick vegetation. The eight rooms are large, spacious tents on raised wooden platforms with a large terrace covered by a banana-leaf and thatched roof. At the rear of the tents is a big en suite bathroom with a shower and separate bath and plenty of piping hot water. These have been recently refurbished and are decorated to high standards.
The main dining and bar area is open-sided with views across to the primary forest on the opposite hillside. The food is excellent with large breakfasts and five course meals every evening. There is also a small spa offering massage treatments to anyone with weary legs after a day trekking to see the gorillas! The vegetation attracts plenty of birdlife and monkeys can sometimes be heard calling in the surrounding forest.
