Take the time to explore the Mbama Swamp on a boat ride, an area characterised by floating meadows and swamp forests.

Nestled in verdant forestry at an elevation of nearly 7000 feet, Clouds Mountain Gorilla Lodge is an exclusive luxury lodge located in close proximity to the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. The lodge's stunning cottage accommodation boasts warm interiors and floor-to-ceiling windows, the ideal base to soak in the breathtaking natural surroundings. 

Day 4-5
Gorilla Trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest

Situated on the eastern edge of the Albertine Rift Valley, the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is a pristine, primaeval forest believed to be 25,000 years old. Renowned for its rich biodiversity, the forest is home to 160 tree species, 350 bird species and a variety of primates, including more than half of the world's population of mountain gorillas. During your time at the lodge, you'll embark on an expert-led gorilla trek through the luscious forest and locate these creatures in their own natural habitat. A once-in-a-lifetime experience, this remarkable excursion will allow you to observe the gorillas without barriers at a comfortable distance.
