Gorilla Mountain View Lodge


This traditional lodge provides a great base to go in search of Rwanda’s mountain gorillas.

There’s a certain charm about the Gorilla Mountain View Lodge, with its stone cottages, traditional décor and friendly staff. And its location is hard to beat – in the foothills of the Virunga Volcanoes with stunning views, just ten minutes from where you’ll register for your gorilla trek. There’s a restaurant and bar, with meals created from farm-fresh produce to support the local community, and local dancers provide evening entertainment. Rooms are individual stone chalets with traditional orange and brown African décor, an open fire (very welcome in the evenings) and a simple bathroom.
