In celebration of Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp featuring on tv show “Born to Explore”, shown on ABC in the United States, they are offering 20% off accommodation at the atmospheric camp in Bwindi, Uganda, for a short time only. From an enviable location overlooking the mesmerizing Bwindi forest, where gorillas and chimpanzees roam free, Volcanoes Bwindi Lodge is in one Africa’s most biologically diverse areas.

Guests track the mighty mountain gorillas in Uganda’s famed Impenetrable Forest or, if you’re lucky, they track you. The gentle giants are known to frequent the camp on a regular basis, so guests are able to watch them meander through the grounds from the comfort of their room’s deck.  Paradise!

The lodge takes conservation seriously  so Bwindi Lodge is run on sound ecological principles, with solar-powered lighting and hot bucket showers to minimise the environmental impact. All local materials were sourced for the camp’s construction, which gives the lodge an authentic rustic feel. The friendly staff too are recruited from local communities and are passionate about their amazing heritage – evident as soon as you talk with them.

Meals are fresh and wholesome, combining local and Western cuisines to cater for even the most discerning palate. The dining room overlooks the valley and the terrace, which juts out into the forest, is the perfect place to soak up the sight and sounds of the surrounds.
