Sanctuary Retreats' Gorilla Forest Camp Voted the Best In Uganda

In the world of African travel, Abercrombie & Kent (A&K) is synonymous with excellence. It is then with much pleasure that A&K announces that the readers of Twende, East Africa’s premier travel magazine, has voted Gorilla Forest Camp the Best Tented Camp in Uganda.

Abercrombie & Kent’s Gorillas of Bwindi experience is unforgettable: remarkable encounters with the rare and endangered gorillas of Bwindi, Uganda. This unique journey is a trek for two days through the forest to locate one of the four habituated gorilla families. Once there, visitors spend time observing these awe-inspiring primates interacting in their forest surrounds – a powerful experience on many levels. Whilst relishing the chance to observe these rare animals in their natural habitat, travellers will learn about their food regime, survival tactics and strong, unfaltering companionship.

After spending precious time with these inspirational creatures, guests retire to the impressive Gorilla Forest Camp, located in mountainside rainforest within the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Sanctuary Retreats’ five-star deluxe tented accommodation surpasses all expectations and offers a soothing and unique oasis in this compelling environment.

Sujata Raman, A&K’s Managing Director says, “We are thrilled to be awarded this honour by the people of Africa. Geoffrey Kent’s passion for Africa inspired him to found A&K back in 1962 and it is humbling indeed that A&K has been recognised in this way. Gorilla Forest Camp is the epitome of the Abercrombie & Kent experience – the perfect blend of an up close and personal experience of nature delivered in an award winning, elegant environment.”
