My mom and I have been traveling throughout Uganda for a few weeks, and Clouds has definitely been the most luxurious, modern, and comfortable lodge yet. The main area is very large with big white couches and lots of natural light. The wifi worked well, and the food was delicious. They even baked a cake for my birthday! Our two...

We were actually only scheduled to stay one night, but we changed our plans and stayed another because it was such a great experience.

I cannot say enough great things about Clouds.

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...
