Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge is situated high on Nteko Ridge in Nkuringo, bordering the South Western corner of the Bwindi National Park. At 8500ft the views from the lodge are glorious, looking out to the Virunga mountain range of Rwanda and the Congo and across the Great Rift Valley.
There are 8 stone lodges, six with their own bedroom, en suite bathroom and sitting room and a further two family rooms with two bedrooms each. Fireplaces, large armchairs and sheltered verandas with views across the valleys make it all enormously comfortable.
Good food, an extensive bar and a huge and comfortable general area and a spa are particularly welcome after a day of gorilla tracking.
And on the subject of the gorilla tracking - it may take a long time, but the starting point at the Uganda Wildlife Authority headquarters is only a short walk from the lodge so there is plenty of time for a leisurely breakfast before setting off.
