Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp
Waking to the sound of a male silverback thumping his chest deep in the green-cloaked misty mountains of Uganda is one of the most remarkable experiences you could wish for. The impenetrable Bwindi Forest is far from the tourist track of Africa. Here, in the velvet heartlands, only eight luxury tents make up the Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp. Candlelit bathtubs, indigenous prints, and custom designed furnishings set the scene for intimate nights and exclusive days. Each cabin even comes with its own walkie-talkie, so you can order tall cool drinks to be delivered without having to abandon the sanctuary of your private space. Communal spaces are light and breezy – perfect for lazy breakfasts and sharing trekking stories around the campfire. Of course the major draw here is the chance to track endangered gorillas in the wild, but for the intrepid – you will also find Batwa tribe experiences, wild encounters at the Queen Elizabeth National Park, and Africology spa days.
