Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp
About Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp
Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp is the ideal base for a gorilla tracking adventure in Bwindi. Nestled deep in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the camp offers guests an unrivalled location, including the best bird and wildlife viewing in the Bwindi area.
The camp consist of eight tents and a communal central cottage that provides a warm shelter on those cooler evening when it is not possible to dine under the stars next to the roaring fireplace. The eight tents have wooden floors and decks, comfortable warm beds, and each tent boasts a bathtub that looks straight out into the jungle's canopy.
Bwindi Impenetrable Forest impresses one with its truly theatrical landscape. This is a region of volcanoes, jagged valleys, waterfalls, lakes and dramatic mountain ranges. And it is here, on a flat ridge high in the forest, that Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp is tucked away. It's hard to fathom that such luxury and sophistication could be available in an area as remote as this, and we did face enormous logistical obstacles, but it was worth it.
Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp often receives regular visits from the gorillas themselves, up to four or six visits per month. For the lucky guests in camp at those times, they have the chance for a gorilla encounter without even leaving the camp.
Gorilla permits, transfer to and from the airstrips, schedules or charter flights to and from the camp, items of a personal nature, medical insurance and intercamp transfers.
