Exceptional service and in a breath-taking setting

A unmissable experience at a well-appointed, pioneering mountain lodge

At 2,100m above sea level, with sweeping views of the Virunga Volcanoes and the Great Rift Valley, this lodge – a sister property to Apoka Lodge and Semliki Safari Lodge - is in remote Nkuringo (the southern sector of Bwindi). It offers luxury accommodation created by a pioneering ecotourism project in partnership with USAID, AWF and the Nkuringo community (NCCDF).

The main building has warm, earthy-coloured ceilings and walls, impressive wooden beams and big picture windows with marvellous views over rainforest, hills and the Virunga volcano chain. A frequent and memorable highlight is witnessing dramatic volcanic activity at night, from the comfort of this lodge. There are seven en-suite cottages built of volcanic stone, each with a large sitting room, a fireplace, huge armchairs, handwoven carpets and comfy bedrooms as well as private veranda. Some of Uganda’s most renowned artists display their works in the lodge. Much of the food is grown in an organic garden.

Tracking gorillas is high on the agenda for many tourists to Uganda, and Clouds Mountain lodge is a fantastic place to start your gorilla trekking experience. While you’re at the lodge, you can unwind with a massage or beauty treatments, and enjoy taking part in community activities. You’ll not stop enjoying the spectacular setting.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… so we connect with local communities, and strive for sustainable travel to make your holiday special
