Gorilla Forest Camp

Classic A deluxe lodge or tented camp, almost all with swimming pools, excellent food and service, large nicely appointed rooms or tents with comfortable beds and tasteful decor; most of the lodges have air-conditioning and the tents are usually fan-cooled.

Gorilla Forest Camp is a luxury permanent tented camp located within the Bwindi National Park. As the only luxury property within the park, it is the ideal base for your gorilla trekking adventure. Each of the eight spacious tents features a huge bathtub that looks into the jungle canopy and is the ideal place to relax after a day of trekking. Enjoy a cocktail on your private verandah while watching the prolific bird life. The main lounge area includes a separate bar and dining cottage that overlooks the lush rain forest. Dinner is a four or five course celebration highlighting fresh ingredients and local favorites. There is a small spa that offers a variety of treatments to choose from such as herbal massage, facial and foot massage.

Traveler Feedback

We are back home from our adventure in Africa.  The trip was everything we expected and more!  Of course for me (Bev), the ultimate highlight of the trip was the gorillas in both Uganda and Rwanda. I loved everything connected to the gorillas which included the trekking to find them, the information about them as well as just observing them in their natural habitat.  

The highlight for Jim was observing the chimpanzees first in the high trees and then up close and personal on the ground.  The chimpanzees were a pleasant surprise for us....neither one of us thought much about the chimpanzees before signing up for the trip...for us, it was pretty much all about the gorillas and anything else was just a bonus.  Well, for Jim, that Chimpanzee bonus turned out to be his favorite thing.  Albeit, his cold which developed in Uganda kept him from taking his second Gorilla trek in Rwanda...had he been able to take this gorilla trek, who knows, maybe he would change his favorite thing to the gorillas as well.  

We both thoroughly enjoyed the cruise on Kazinga Channel in Queen Elizabeth National park.  We were pleasantly surprised at how much wildlife we saw along the banks of the channel while relaxing with our beer and wine on the boat…  

We loved the Ishasha Wilderness Camp as well as the Gorilla Forest.  

When I take adventure trips such as this one, I'm always ready for the surprises that may come our way during the trip.  Again, we were pleasantly surprised that the trip went according to plan!  Someone was always where they were supposed to be to meet us....that's a very reassuring feeling when traveling in a foreign country.  Thanks again for showing us a wonderful time through Africa Adventure Company.  I won't hesitate to recommend you to other adventure travelers.
