Head to Africa, and you’ll find the Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp deep inside the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Guests will be surrounded by a unique landscape, including waterfalls, lakes, volcanoes, and incredible mountain ranges. The sanctuary is frequently visited by gorilla families and provides a unique opportunity to experience their company up close and personal.
With just eight tents, the Gorilla Forest Camp is an exclusive once-in-a-lifetime luxury sanctuary. Each tent is a stylish and spacious escape, complete with two queen-sized beds and a huge bathtub.
If all the gorilla spotting makes you hungry, the bar and dining cottage offers open-air dining where Chef Jackson serves a silver service dinner with four to five courses every evening.
The sanctuary also has an established philanthropy project at Bwindi Community Hospital, which guests can learn more about and visit during their trip. According to the sanctuary’s website, new initiatives are being introduced thanks to the support of Sanctuary Retreats and guests, including a nursing school to train nursing students, a new adult ward with room for 60 patients, and the provision of two new ambulances.
Knowing your trip can further improve the lives of others makes this sanctuary experience all the more special and worthy of checking out.
