Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp is situated within the beautiful forest of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park area of western Uganda. Of all the properties in the region, this one is closest to the gorillas – sometimes, gorillas even visit the camp! The camp is owned and operated by Sanctuary Retreats, a name synonymous with fabulous locations and luxurious accommodation.
The communal buildings are set in well-kept grounds and constructed from timber, stone, and thatch. The largest structure contains a comfortable lounge with plenty of wood-framed cushioned seating around chunky coffee tables – this space adjoins both the smart dining room, featuring wildlife prints on the walls, and the inviting bar! The mini-spa offers massages, mani–pedis, and facials, while the gift shop stocks various local artifacts as well as essential items. The grounds include a fire-pit area, in addition to spaces for private dining. And there is complimentary Wi-Fi in all communal areas!
