100% of our proceeds go toward protecting the gorillas and the health of the surrounding communities.
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.
For those who want to learn and give something back to a local project, CTPH Gorilla Conservation Camp offers rustic and comfortable accommodation for tourists, students and researchers, where profits go towards supporting our gorilla conservation efforts on the ground. The camp has a new Guest House with four self-contained rooms together with two tents based around a shaded dining area set amongst the trees. Located in Buhoma Village the Gorilla Conservation Camp is near the Batwa village and only 2 km from the entrance to the national park.
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.
