Set on a hilltop with stunning views of the Virunga Volcanoes, and overlooking the shimmering lakes Ruhondo and Bulera, Virunga Lodge is a luxurious option to choose when visiting Volcanoes National Park for a gorilla trekking experience.
With 8 stone and tile bandas, your privacy is ensured as they are spread out along the terraced gardens, all offering en-suite bathrooms, beautiful views, and spacious rooms.
Aside from gorilla tracking , guests can climb a volcano, track the golden monkey, visit Dian Fossey's grave or go for gentle strolls around the picturesque villages near the lakes.
It does need to be noted that Virunga Lodge is set a bit further away from the trekking point from some of the other lodges, and an early morning is required in order to complete the 45 minute – 1 hour drive to the start of your hike.
The lodge is accessible via a 3 hour drive from Kigali, or a long day drive from Kampala, with helicopter transfers being possible to land at the lodge’s own heli-pad on top of the hill.
To experience the wonderful views and people for which Rwanda is known, Virunga Lodge will provide you with the perfect place, and is sure to be a highlight of any holiday to Africa.
As an eco-friendly lodge, electricity is supplied via solar panels, with charging facilities being available at the main building.
