Out of all the places we stayed on our Uganda trip, this was by far the best. What sets this place apart is its service. The staff were simply excellent; within minutes they knew our names and focused on providing outstanding service. Barbara, the head waitress, could not have tried harder. The manager, Ian, was also exceptional. The rooms were good, very clean, but one suggestion is they could improve the shower units. The food was also very good, and the bar well-stocked. The location is excellent for gorilla trekking, and the local involvement of the lodge is impressive as well. They have apparently arranged for the sponsoring of over 120 orphans by guests.

- As the only concessionaire luxury camp within Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp is the perfect base from which to track the park's most famous resident - the mountain gorilla. The main area features a comfortable lounge and bar area as well as the main dining area while the mini spa offers a wide selection of treatments. Located within the National Park, Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp offers guests an unrivalled location, including the best bird and wildlife viewing in the Bwindi area.

For the lucky guests in camp at those times, they may have the chance for a gorilla encounter without even leaving Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp. The eight tents at Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp are stylish and spacious, each featuring two queen sized beds. In addition to the comfortable warm beds, each tent has a huge bathtub that looks straight into the jungle canopy ideal for soaking tired muscles after a day spent observing and meeting gorillas. Observe rare forest species while soaking in the tub, followed by a cocktail on the private viewing deck served by your personal attendant. ... more less
