Accommodation
Built of local volcanic stone, each of the eight cottages at Clouds has a large sitting room with fireplace, vast overstuffed armchairs, and hand-woven carpets. There are soaring ceilings, massive exposed wooden beams, and expansive picture windows with endless views of treetops, volcanoes, and mountains.
Two of the cottages are ideal for families or friends traveling together as they each have two separate bedrooms with en suite bathrooms.

The main building with reception, dining, shop, and bar area has six fireplaces to keep it cozy. Views from the main balcony area stretch across to Rwanda and the Virungas. This award-winning lodge is the highest quality lodge in Bwindi.

Experiences
As well as exciting gorilla treks, during your stay there will be plenty of other opportunities to explore the area. Take a stroll to the local award-winning Bwindi Bar and enjoy the drinks and tapas that are served from this community project.

Try a tea tour learning how it is grown, picked and processed in traditional ways. To get a first-hand experience of the culture and lives of those in the area, you take a guided village walk vising local schools and orphanages.

If you are interested birding, you won’t be disappointed. Uganda is one of the most fruitful destinations with over 1,000 species present and 150 of those only found here.

Community
Community
Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge is closely involved with the local Nkuringo community and ensures that the local people benefit directly from each guest’s stay. This happens through employment, bed-night fees, and the purchase of local resources. The community has thus been able to invest the money received from gorilla tourism into social development projects that help reduce poverty in the region.
Conservation
Conservation
The lodge provides an example of how communities that bear the costs of wildlife conservation, and in some cases give up their land for conservation, should be compensated – using sustainable mechanisms that generate sufficient benefits to secure local support for conservation for the long term.
