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. It is situated an hour away from Volcanoes National Park; a pleasant drive that encounters Rwandan locals going about their daily life - always an interesting fight for visitors. Virunga Lodge's central building houses the reception, restaurant and public areas, which all produce magnificent panoramic views across the lakes and the Virunga volcanic mountains.
The main activity is gorilla tracking, backed up by golden monkey tracking, both of which are an hour away by road. Additionally there is some great guided walking to be had in the area around the lodge. Aside from gorilla and golden monkey tracking, guests can climb one of the Virunga volcanoes, visit Dian Fossey's grave, or go for gentle strolls around the picturesque villages near the lakes. There is the option to visit the capital, Kigali, which is 3 hours' drive away or take a day trip to Kampala.
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.
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.
