CLOUDS MOUNTAIN GORILLA LODGE
Built of local volcanic stone, each of the 7 cottages has a large sitting room with fireplace, vast overstuffed armchairs, and hand-woven carpets. There are soaring ceilings, massive exposed wooden beams, big picture windows with endless views of treetops, volcanoes and mountains; and a gentle, warm welcome, quiet dedication from the personal butlers and smiles on the faces of all the staff. It is a short walk from the lodge to the Nkuringo trailhead or transfer to the Rushaga base in order to track the gorillas. Clouds, with the ultimate goal of protecting the natural habitat of the mountain gorilla, directly benefits the community of Nkuringo in a multitude of ways as they have a significant stake in the lodge and its income. It was built in conjunction with AWF, USAID, IGCP and NCCDF and offers many community-based activities. It is the ultimate in accommodation in either Northern or Southern Bwindi.
