Nestled somewhat ominously at the base of Mgahinga, Muhavuru and Sabinyo, three of the Virunga volcanoes, lies Mount Gahinga Lodge. It is part of south-western Uganda though it pretty much forms the border with Rwanda and the DRC as all three countries share the world-renowned Virunga Volcanoes.
The lodge has been completely refurbished and renovated and now offers luxury accommodation in the heart of the Ugandan wilderness. There are 9 thatched bandas with en-suite facilities that offer the utmost in privacy and exclusivity. The lodge has little impact on the eco-system and there has been a special emphasis on the need to reduce waste and excess. There is now a sun-room which looks out towards the volcanoes with spectacular views of the valley below and there is also a new terrace and lush landscaped gardens.
Mgahinga National Park is Uganda's part of the famous Virunga Volcanoes ecosystem which houses half the world's remaining mountain gorillas. It contains a great concentration of birds, animals and plants and of course you can spot the magical mountain gorillas. The habituated Nyakagezi group are often in the area and offer an unforgettable encounter! In addition, one can climb one of the dormant volcanoes, quite a challenge, and take a trip to Lake Mutanda with its turquoise waters. Or simply relax at your luxury lodge and savour the wilderness experience.
