About Gorilla Conservation Camp
CTPH Gorilla Conservation Camp is one of Bwindi’s only budget options offering accommodation on the edge of the beautiful Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. For those who don’t want to splash out on staying in one of the high end lodges and also want to give something back to a local project, CTPH Gorilla conservation camp offers rustic but comfortable accommodation for tourists, students and researchers and puts 100% of profits towards gorilla conservation.
The camp was the first to be operational in the area when Bwindi Impenetrable National Park was opened for Gorilla Tourism in 1993. Today the camp has four single or double tents based around a shaded dining area set among the trees. Located in Buhoma Village CTPH conservation camp is in close proximity to the Batwa village and only 2 km from the entrance to the national park.
The camp is also home to CTPH’s Gorilla Research Clinic, which you can visit during your stay. The clinic works in conjunction with Ugandan Wildlife Authority to analyses gorilla data to help prevent the spread of disease between the local population and the gorillas, helping to conserve the endangered mountain gorilla. Bwindi is home to half the mountain gorillas in the world and staying at CTPH conservation camp you are helping to ensure their survival.
100% of our proceeds go toward protecting the gorillas and the health of the surrounding communities. Rates displayed are on a full board basis.
