What makes Sanctuary special?
One of the most well-liked lodging alternatives for gorilla trekkers seeking a luxurious base is Sanctuary camp. It is located in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, only five minutes from the trailhead headquarters in Buhoma. The most well-liked gorilla trekking path in the park is Buhoma. Since the camp is actually a part of the environment, gorillas frequently emerge from the nearby foliage and roam the grounds.
Along with its fantastic location, the Sanctuary team has what it takes to succeed in the East African luxury accommodation market: excellent service and artistically functional design. The staff goes above and beyond to look after each visitor, and the accommodations are private, tented cottages with queen size mattresses and a private en-suite toilet.
The simple items also serve as a continual reminder that you are distant from civilization while you are sitting around a campfire at night. The epitome of luxury adventure travel is waking up early to begin your day’s adventuring with freshly cleaned and dried boots and clothes ready and waiting for you, along with a fresh coffee and the crisp jungle air.
Rooms and Amenities.
Around Sanctuary camp, there are 8 private tented cabins, and two more are being built with plans to launch in 2020. Every cabin is elevated on a wooden platform. Two queen-sized beds, a viewing terrace, and an attached bathroom are included in each cottage. A lounge area with a dining area and a bar is located in the main lodge building.
The lodge provides spa services, such as massages. The meal is consistently delicious, the service is first-rate, and there is a daily laundry service.
Gorilla trekking from Sanctuary.
On the northern edge of the Bwindi forest, Sanctuary can be found close to the Buhoma trailhead. The most well-known trekking route, Buhoma, is where gorilla trekking first started in 1993.
The Rushegura gorilla family like to stay out close to the village, making this one of the four trailheads around Bwindi the most accessible for trekking (and the reason they occasionally stray onto the grounds of Sanctuary camp!).
