This place does not only take care of your every need, but also offers one of the most spectacular views when you wake up in the morning. In the evening when lucky and the sky is clear, you can even see two or three active volcanoes glowing in the distance. People, location and lovingly decorated facilities, food - everything was...

Me and my wife were spending 3 nights in clouds and it was fantastic. The lodge, gorillas, view, rooms, food and drinks the staff, I really don't know where to start. It was a unforgettable time. Thank you clouds.

(Please read to end for trekking feedback.) First of all, it is mgr. Jan Tanner, caring and generous (allowing us to borrow his personal backpack-thank you! and his selecting Uganda local Veon, assistant cook at the lodge to accompany me on the second day gorilla trek when my husband couldn't go) that is the heart and soul of this property....

We had a lovely 2 days here as we went to see the gorillas. We were looked after immaculately, the rooms were very spoiling and the food was very good. We loved the fireplace in the room with the log burning fire and the views were incredible. All the staff were very friendly and helpful

We went to Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge to see the endangered mountain gorillas. Our cottage was perfect, complete with fireplace in the living room and rose petals on the turned down bed complete with duvet comforter. The staff could not have been friendlier. Innocent was out butler and there was simply nothing enough he could do for us. Our stay... More

The Clouds is beautiful and the staff couldn't be any nicer. After a very long drive from Kampala (I recommend flying if you can), the staff greeted us with a cocktail and a hand massage. Our cottage was beautiful and we never wanted for anything. I loved our gorilla trek but by the end I just wanted to get back... More

Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge is THE ULTIMATE place to stay in Uganda! The lodge is owned by the local community so staying at Clouds has a direct benefit to the local people. Besides that fact, it's so special and a real treat especially if you can add in a few nights stay at the end of your safari or after... More

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
