The Gorilla Forest Camp truly lives up to the reputation established by the Sanctuary Retreat hotel group. It is terrific! The "Tents" are spacious, well furnished with comfortable beds and chairs. The stone bathrooms have fulltime hot water! And to go with the shower there is an open air bath tub.
There are only 8 tents - built into a hillside right inside the National Park. The food is excellent - though the fixed menu's don't allow for a lot of choice.
What really makes this place great is the staff. Ian, the manager does a fabulous job of keeping everyone happy. Nicholas takes care of the guests needs. Precious offered up an amazing massage in the mini-spa and the serving staff are always smiling. The meeting place for gorilla tracking is just a short walk from the camp.
I run a Safari Expedition company - cielopictures.com - and stayed here for the first time in June to see if it is worth bringing clients to. We'll be bringing them here as often as we can!
