We spent two nights here at the end of a long trip through East Africa. We were actually only scheduled to stay one night, but we changed our plans and stayed another because it was such a great experience. The views of Virunga in nearby DRC are breathtaking, the accommodations are superb, the staff is gracious and attentive (having a...

I cannot say enough great things about Clouds. The moment you check in, you are met by the manager,Alex, and his wife, Gillian, who care deeply about each and every one of their guests and want to ensure you have an extraordinary experience at the lodge. You then meet your personal butler who caters to you the entire time you...

My mom (57) and I (24) stayed at Clouds lodge when we went gorilla trekking. It was a very unique and pampering experience. Each room hast it's own butler and housekeeper, preparing the warm beds and bringing tea and coffee to your cottage in the morning. A fire was lot in our cottage every evening. The food was always fresh...

We walked to Clouds from Bwindi Lodge at Buhoma (6 and a half miles) through the forest, accompanied by a guide, a porter, and armed Rangers (to scare off any forest elephants). It was mostly a fairly easy and uneventful walk through the rainforest but with a sharp incline for the last 30 minutes. Clouds sent a vehicle to pick...

We spent 4-nights at Clouds and we were literally on cloud nine throughout our stay. We received a very warm welcome from Bright, the manager along with complimentary hand massage the perfect tonic to help us forget about the long exhausting ride from Rwanda, especially the last section of unpaved bumpy mountain roads. Personal butler: Monday is an exceptional person...

We spent four nights at Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge in late August 2016. Our objective was entirely centered around spending two days with different family groups of mountain gorillas in Bwindi National Park. However, we ended up being treated to so many special activities while at Clouds. Clouds is a community owned lodge with part of the somewhat pricey charges...

Three awesome days, one amazing gorilla tracking, a sweet and caring butler and housekeeper who fulfilled our every desire.

A perfect setting to prepare you for the unforgettable trek to see gorillas - we will go back! It's relatively expensive however, it's clear that a lot of the money goes into the local community and you are doing your bit to preserve these incredible animals. Totally safe and the staff were excellent - you get your own butler &...

We felt very welcome in this beautiful lodge in the mountains. We had a lovely house with a terrace and bed decorated with flowers. During the chilly evenings the fireplace was burning and we found hot water bottles in our beds. Staff was well prepared with regard to the gorilla tracking and if there was anything you forgot to bring...
