Nkuringo Gorilla Camp

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, Uganda

Make Nkuringo Gorilla Camp part of your safari from

The Nkuringo Gorilla Camp is to be found located at 2161m ASL on the Nteko ridge overlooking a beautiful swath of the world renowned Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park. The ridge provides a superb vantage across the Kashasha river valley to the forested hill known as 'Nkuringo' and the surrounding swathe of trees of the Bwindi Forest.

This section of forest is home to the Nkuringo group of Mountain Gorillas from where the camp provides a prime access point to the start of this amazing activity. The camp has panoramic views of the majestic volcanoes of the Virunga chain and across the escarpment into the Albertine Rift Valley within the DR Congo.

A lucky few visitors will observe the clouds envelop the forested valley below the camp and be party to views to the north as far as the glaciers on the Rwenzori peaks some 160 kms distant. In January 2010 visitors where thrilled to witness not one but two active volcanoes in the DR Congo from Nkuringo. Both Nyiragongo and Nyimuragira continue to light up the night sky on clear evenings for the intrepid travellers to Nkuringo.
