The Virunga Lodge is located near Rwanda’s Parc National Des Volcans, where visitors can track the rare mountain gorilla. It’s an eco-luxury lodge with unparalleled views over two crater lakes and the Virunga Volcanoes. A delightful mix of isolation and comfort, Virunga Lodge maintains an understated luxury reflective of its natural roots, always remaining sensitive to the fragile ecosystem it calls home. The lodge offers 10 stone cottages (bandas) each with en-suite bathrooms with flushing toilets and hot and cold running water. Each banda has a huge private stone patio with magnificent views. They come equipped with a fire-place to keep warm on chilly nights. The communal lounge and dining room are cozy and perfect for sharing gorilla tracking adventures with fellow guests. The food is excellent, the drinks are plentiful. Don’t miss the spectacular traditional dancing at sunset. The lodge offers a multitude of activities including visiting Dian Fossey’s grave, remarkable hiking excursions, opportunities to learn about local culture, and of course tracking the elusive Mountain Gorilla. Spending an hour with these gentle giants will change your life forever and is a truly unforgettable experience.
