CTPH Gorilla Conservation Camp is Bwindi’s only budget option offering accommodation on the edge of the beautiful Bwindi Impenetrable National Park with a stunning panoramic view of the top of the Forest. The camp offers rustic and comfortable accommodation for tourists, students and researchers, and profits go towards supporting our gorilla conservation efforts on the ground. The camp has a new Guest House with five self-contained rooms together with two tents based around a shaded dining area set amongst the trees. Our lodging is located in Buhoma – just 2km From Bwindi and gorilla trekking.
The camp is adjacent to CTPH’s Gorilla Health and Community Conservation Centre. The Centre works in conjunction with Uganda Wildlife Authority to analyze gorilla samples to help prevent the spread of disease between the local population and the gorillas, helping to conserve the critically endangered mountain gorilla. We also host community conservation activities at the Centre. You can visit the Centre during your stay.
