Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp


Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp is a permanent luxury tented camp nestled in the mist-swathed rainforests of mountainside in the heart of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park. The exclusive location – the sole property within the park’s boundaries - affords Gorilla Forest Camp the status of being the ideal base for gorilla tracking, primate viewing and birding excursions in the park. Gorilla Forest Camp has been designed to blend seamlessly into this most atmospheric of environments, carefully-appointed towards the misty valleys and looming, forest-clad mountains that protect this fragile eco-system. 

Accommodation is in 8 double tents, raised on wooden platforms, each with en-suite facilities and hot and cold running water, WC, basin and unusually – a bathtub looking out onto the forest. Each tent has a spacious wooden verandah where guests can relax, enjoy a private meal and absorb the exotic mystery of the surrounding rainforest.

The Gorilla Forest Camp offers a bar and dining cottage overlooking the rain forest, as well as a raised natural platform for open air dining. At night, a traditional African campfire is lit from where a lecture might be given by a visiting primatologist, the gorilla briefings are undertaken or guests simply admire the myriad brilliance of Bwindi’s crystal clear mountain sky. 

The Gorillas you will track at Gorilla Forest Camp are by no means tame. They are completely wild animals, which even now tolerate human presence for an hour a day at most. Gorilla tracking is a year-round activity, with no season as such. The rain forest is moist, and it rains very often in Bwindi, even in the dry season. The trek commences every morning from the park headquarters at 0830. There is a daily maximum of 6 visitors to each gorilla group, and each group is accompanied by a guide and porters who will carry your shoulder pack.
