Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge in Uganda is luxurious, intimate, and beautiful. It is over 2,000 meters above sea level, it is Uganda’s highest lodge.
Since it opened, this small, remote lodge continues to win prizes, awards and accolades both internationally and locally.
You are sitting up on a ridge, above the clouds, looking across to the Virunga volcanoes. Behind you is the primordial, mysterious and impenetrable forest that is Bwindi. As you sit there, drinking your chilled wine, or your freshly brewed coffee, or your freshly squeezed juice or your amber-colored whisky you smile. You smile because you know that your personal butler is lighting the fire in your cottage and setting out your freshly laundered clothes. In the kitchen they are preparing a gorgeous meal, and tomorrow after breakfast you will walk from the lodge to the Nkuringo trailhead and track the gorillas.
Guests at Clouds stay in their own cottages. Built of local volcanic stone, every cottage has a large sitting room with a fireplace. Also it has vast overstuffed armchairs, and hand-woven carpets. Each individual cottage features the work of one of Uganda’s most respected artists (we call them the ‘Clouds 9’). Their work has been so highly regarded by guests. They have commissioned their own pieces and now the work of these artists graces the walls of homes and offices in New York, Toronto, Vancouver, Los Angeles, and London.
The main activity at this lodge
Tracking gorillas is high on the agenda for many tourists to Uganda. By all means, come to Clouds to track gorillas. But also while you’re here, why not stay on a bit and immerse yourself in the relaxing vibe of the lodge? Partake in community activities, indulge in massage and beauty treatments. Also enjoy the rarity of being pampered in such a spectacular setting.
The main lodge feels like someplace else – soaring ceilings, massive exposed wooden beams, big picture windows with endless views of treetops, volcanoes and mountains. It feels like a ski chalet in the alps. Or a stone palace in the Rocky Mountains. But with the gentle and warm welcome, the quiet dedication of the personal butlers, and the smiles on the faces of virtually all the staff, this can only be in Uganda.
