With the motto of living ‘Luxury Naturally’ the Sanctuary Retreat’s, Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camps is an excellent amalgamation of luxury and wildlife.

This elegant tented accommodation, surrounded by the breathtaking mountain landscapes, will bring you as close to nature as possible without compromising on luxuries. It is one of the best spots in the world for tracking mountain gorillas. The only accommodation located within the national park, the camp boasts an unrivalled location with exceptional wildlife and birdlife viewing opportunities. The crowned jewel of the camp is the communal area which boasts a comfortable lounge, a well-stocked bar and a dining area.


The camp can be accessed by flight from Entebbe to Kihihi, followed by a 2 hour drive. Drive. Alternatively, one can access it from Kampala which is a 10 hour drive to Bwindi, or from Kigali in Rwanda which is 8 hours away.
