CTPH Gorilla Conservation Camp
CTPH Gorilla Conservation Camp, Buhoma
CTPH Gorilla Conservation camp is one of Bwindi’s only budget options
offering accommodation on the edge of the beautiful Bwindi Impenetrable
National Park. For those who don’t want to splash out on staying in one
of the high end lodges and also want to give something back to a local
project, CTPH Gorilla conservation camp offers rustic but comfortable
accommodation for tourists, students and researchers and puts 100% of
profits towards gorilla conservation.
The camp was the first to be operational in the area when Bwindi
Impenetrable National Park was opened for Gorilla Tourism in 1993. Today
the camp has four single/double tents based around a shaded dining area
set amongst the trees. Located in Buhoma Village CTPH conservation camp
is in close proximity to the Batwa village and only 2km from the
entrance to the national park.
The camp is also home to CTPH’s Gorilla Research Clinic, which you can
visit during your stay. The clinic works in conjunction with Ugandan
Wildlife Authority to analyse gorilla data to help prevent the spread of
disease between the local population and the gorillas, helping to
conserve the endangered mountain gorilla. Bwindi is home to half the
mountain gorillas in the world and staying at CTPH conservation camp you
are helping to ensure their survival.
