The magnificent Virunga Lodge is set on a stunning hilltop in a spectacular location with a panoramic view of the Virunga volcanoes and shimmering lakes Ruhondo and Bulera.
The lodge has been described as having “the best view in the world” and as “one of the finest lodges in Africa”. The lodge’s eight bandas offer elegance and great comfort, with their ‘organic, bush-chic’ design reflecting the local building style. Luxurious, en-suite bathrooms, with full facilities including low-flush toilets and running solar hot water, allow you to enjoy all the comforts of home, while still being sensitive to the environment. Each banda has its own terrace with spectacular views of the volcanoes or lakes.
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. Three hours’ drive from Kigali or a long day’s drive from Kampala.
