Hotel Overview


On the edge of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, home of the some of the world’s last mountain gorillas.

Rooms at Gorilla Forest Camp

Eight en-suite tents with beautiful bathtubs looking out at the forest.

Food and Facilities

The camp is really nestled into the forest here, so there’s a small lawn, and then the trees where monkeys swing from branch to branch.  There’s a bar and dining room, serving good, hearty food to sustain you during the trek, and a small shop.

Activities at Gorilla Forest Camp

Gorilla trekking is the main draw here: this is usually a challenging hike of several hours through the rainforest- but the trekking memories disappear in a flash the moment you come eye to eye with a mountain gorilla. Gorilla Forest Camp is one of the few places where gorilla trekking isn’t limited to the super-fit and able-bodied: the staff here can (almost) move mountains- one less mobile guest was carried to see the gorillas in a sedan chair! Outside your tracking hours, there are more gentle walks in the forest, and the chance to learn a little about the local culture, with visits to the traditional medicine man, and to see how beer is made from bananas.
