Just book now! Clouds is truly amazing and you are spoilt from the moment you arrive. Your (room) lodge is incredible with a seperate lounge area, bedroom and bathroom with a log fire in between the lounge and bedroom. The bed is so comfy. Each lodge has a personal butler who serves you at each meal and is available for...

The most amazing trip for my husband and I....... we were both so very spoilt from the moment we stepped inside Clouds. We were welcomed by Right, Bosco and Christine... what a first class team they are. Right greeted us every morning, was available throughout the day and was always present to say good night to us.

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.

You then meet your personal butler who caters to you the entire time you...

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.

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...
