About Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge

Just as the name implies, you’ll feel on top of the world after a glance at the unbelievable views from Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge that will quite simply take your breath away...

The vistas are stunning, whether you are relaxing comfortably on your private veranda with a cup of tea and some nibbles, watching through the glass walls of your en-suite shower or enjoying a sundowner with the other guests, overlooking the dramatic Virunga Volcanoes.

Lodge Details


A large and homely lodge with stunning views of the rainforest, very comfortable with great attentive service.


Set in the southern part of Bwindi National Park, amidst the thickets of forest, Cloud’s provides the ultimate place to relax after a hard gorilla trek.

Accommodation & Facilities

The 10 cottages are built from local volcanic mountain stone, two of which are double roomed family units. Each room is crisply decorated with clean lines and has a twin basin en-suite bathroom, separate lounge area with a cosy fireplace and a private veranda equipped with comfortable seating from where you can admire the surrounding views.


Cloud’s prides itself on its cuisine, making it all part of the experience. The staff are well trained and a majority are local to the area. Dining is usually in the main area however private outdoor dinners are available in a variety of locations if booked in advance.

There is also the opportunity for a traditional sundowner at the end of the day whilst being entertained by local performing groups.


The main activity is Gorilla Trekking; the starting point for the trek is just a short walk away, something you will really appreciate on your return! Other activities are available, such as guided forest walks, bird watching and a visit to the local community.
