The trip up the mountain is an adventure within itself (especially during a hard rain). However, when you enter the lodge, you feel like you are in heaven. The service was outstanding! I mean REALLY outstanding! They went above and beyond my expectations, even cleaning my boots after our gorilla trek. I have trekked gorillas in Rwanda and Uganda and... More

It's a long way to come to see mountain gorillas but the experience (gorillas, surroundings, scenery, lodge) was definitely worth it. We had come in from Kigali in Rwanda and in hindsight, we should have flown in to Kisoro instead - would have made the land transfer 4 hours shorter. The lodge is comfortable, the food is pretty good, the... More

We absolutely loved our stay at Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge. Simply put, it was perfect! We were picked up from the Kisoro airstrip by the friendly/smiley Whistle who then drove us 1.5 hours to Clouds. Upon arrival, we were greater by several staff members, including our butler Friday and the Manager of the property, Jan. Both greeted us warmly and... More

Beautiful setting. Extremely attentive and pleasant staff. We appreciated that the lodge was built in large part by the local community and the Nkuringo Community Development Foundation which helps fund community projects such as animal husbandry, health and education. Besides the adventure of trekking gorillas, we thoroughly enjoyed the performance by the local school children. If we were to do... More

We really enjoyed our visit to this lovely lodge and our wonderful visits to see the gorillas. This lodge was a beautiful location with excellent service focused on us. The food was lovely and our whole itinerary was very well organized. In addition to seeing the gorillas, we also really enjoyed the time we spent with the local Batwa Pygmy... More

We stayed two nights at Clouds to trek for gorillas at Nkuringo. The location is great with beautiful views, the main lodge is very nicely decorated, the rooms are large and comfortable and the food is very good. What really sets this lodge apart though, is the service: you are allocated a "butler" and "housekeeper" and I am sure they... More

It's a stunning, winding road up through the mountains to Clouds, which gives you a taste of what's to come with the view from your luxury cottage (and bed) and the lounge and dining literally in the clouds. From the welcome cocktail and hot towel (especially appreciated after gorilla trekking, which is what most people come here to do) to... More

One of the most surreal places on earth! The location is beyond description and although we had cloud we had plenty of views over the mountains and volcanoes. The accommodation is supremely comfortable and private with wood fires lit each evening to create warmth in not only temperature but ambiance. Th staff are beautiful in every way, welcoming, attentive and... More

We have spent three nights in this amazing lodge next to the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. We have reached it after a very tough 6 hour trek in the forest, and at that point we were not exactly tidy and clean. Nevertheless we received a very warm welcome from everybody, and the assigned housekeeper was ready for taking care of our... More

Review of Clouds Mountain Lodge My brother and I visited Clouds Mountain Lodge as part of a month-long African safari in Uganda and Kenya this July. It is hard to describe just how wonderful Clouds Mountain Lodge is to visit and how fantastic experience it is to be in Uganda in such a remote location. Both my brother and I... More
