Great Lodge with Fantastic Staff!
We had a wonderful time during our stay at Mountain Gorilla View Lodge for two nights in August 2021. It was booked as part of our Treks2Rwanda itinerary due to it's location for the gorilla and golden monkey treks. Our cottage was secluded, spacious and cozy. The rooms get cool due to the location so the cottages have their own fireplace and the staff started a fire both nights. They also provided water heaters in the bed, which were a nice added touch. The staff was absolutely incredible - everyone was so welcoming and genuinely kind. The chef, Alfred, was so friendly and made delicious food for each meal. The lodge also cleaned our boots and offered a foot massage free of charge after both the gorilla and golden monkey treks - and the boots truly came back cleaner than when we bought them! The lodge has an outdoor firepit that was a lot of fun to relax around. Overall, this was a wonderful lodge with even more wonderful staff!
Fantastic staff and experience
What a wonderful stay! We were just there for three nights in July 2021. Jackson and his staff couldn’t have been more accommodating. Chef Alfred kept us VERY well fed with outstanding meals. He even did a traditional local meal one night on our request. Kamanzi (may have spelled this wrong - sorry!) brought us on an informational and educational tour of a local village on our request. The experience was amazing!! After we did our gorilla trek they offered complimentary boot cleaning and the best foot massage I have ever received. We also loved the hot water bottles in the bed and the fires in the room every night. Cannot say enough good things about our experience and the attentiveness of the staff. Highly recommend!!!!!
Great Location, Lovely Property
We were booked here through Seven Wonders Safaris in Arusha, Tanzania. They suggested this property because of its reputation, experience and closeness to Volcanoes National Park. It was an ideal location and they were right. It was perfect for us. We were a small group and everyone loved their cottage, fire in the evening, meals, foot massage after a great hike and the meals were very good. The boot cleaning was amazing. They were like new when returned. The front desk staff was very helpful and the area was just beautiful.
A memorable experience
We absolutely loved our experience at the lodge, we did enjoy everything about our 2 nights stay. The lodge blends very beautifully with the surrounding countryside.The cottages are spacious, with a fireplace which was lit every evening, the meals were also very delicious and freshly prepared.. The staff were so welcoming, warm and very kind. Special thanks to Daido, Theo and Benjamin who were such a delight and we felt that we made long lasting friendships with them. PS: The hot water bottles tucked into our comfortable bed made a delightful surprise on the chilly nights. For sure this is a place we would visit again.
We stayed at this lodge for our gorilla and golden monkey treks. The lodge is rustic as you would expect for this remote location. Guests stay in cottages on the property that are spacious and clean. There was a turndown service each night with a hot water bottle snuggled in your bed to warm in as well as a fireplace. The staff is very accommodating and friendly. Generous mostly buffet-style meal choices. We were able to rent shin guards for the treks at the lodge for a nominal fee (well worth it!). There’s not a lot to do do most people gather around the large indoor fireplaces and get to know each other. They do have tribal dancing at 5 each night for about an hour. I really enjoyed the stay and would definitely go back again.
