Fodor's Expert Review Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp
Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Buhoma, Western Region, Uganda
A standout property in northern Bwindi, Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp delivers impeccable service in a classic forest setting. Eight canvas tents on dark-wood platforms occupy their own private clearings inside the impenetrable forest itself. Cow-horn and glass-bead decorated cushions adorn twin queen beds; matching white robes and a hair dryer (a rare find in Bwindi) hang in the en suite bathroom. Walkie-talkies make it all too easy to order up drinks without leaving your tent; and the candelit bathtub offering forest views and complimentary Africology bathcare products is delightful. If that doesn't help you unwind, the spa will: facials, mani/pedis, and various massages in a secluded room. The main lounge and restaurant offer superlative fare, with a popular high tea station offering hot drinks and fruit smoothies every afternoon.
- super-smooth service
- excellent menu full of fresh ingredients
- forest location
- closeness of surrounding forest around the tents obscures views and invites the occasional creepy crawlie
