Gorilla’s Nest Lodge is in the picturesque Musanze district of northern Rwanda, nestled beneath a forest of Eucalyptus trees. This lodge is perfectly situated closely outside the Volcanoes National Park, which is where Rwanda's famous gorilla safaris take place. Here, guests at Gorilla's Nest are afforded the unique opportunity of seeing mountain gorillas and other primates in their natural surroundings. Simultaneously guests guests can rejoice in the stillness and serenity of nature in this part of Africa; one of the most unvisited holiday destinations on the continent.
Guests can delight in a host of activities, most specifically, the mountain gorilla tracking, which is expertly led by a guide and involves (sometimes, strenuous) hiking through the beautiful Volcanoes National Park rainforest. Golden monkeys and a wide variety of birds are also part of the safari as they can be seen throughout the trek. Guests can visit Dian Fossey's Karisoke Research Centre to learn about the magnificent work this famed zoologist conducted during her life. Luxuriate and enjoy authentic African cuisine and expertly prepared international dishes in a cosy and traditionally African atmosphere. There is also the opportunity to observe and engage in traditional Rwandan culture with a visit to a nearby homestead. Gorilla's Nest Lodge is only a scenic 90 kilometre drive from Kigali.
Situated 1km north of Volcanoes National Park headquarters at Kinigi village, Sabyinyo Silverback is the closest lodge to the forest and is undoubtedly the premium location in the area. Award-winning property with exceptional offers for gorilla safaris.
Virunga Lodge is a lovely eco-friendly lodge set on a stunning hilltop in a spectacular location with a panoramic view of the Virunga volcanoes and lakes Ruhondo and Bulera. Luxury accommodation situated an hour away from Volcanoes National Park.
