Peaceful hideaway at Mountain Gorilla View Lodge

Among rainforest and bamboo, volcanoes and lakes, critically-endangered mountain gorillas roam across Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park—allowing visitors the opportunity to track and get close to habituated troops of these fascinating but endangered gorillas. Mountain Gorilla View Lodge, just 10 minutes from the entrance of the park, is an ideal base for travellers looking to make excursions into the park.

Lauded as the first national park on the continent, Volcanoes National Park not only hides mountain gorillas within its boundaries. Spot and track golden monkeys with the help of an expert guide, while keeping an eye out for buffalo, spotted hyena, black-fronted duiker. Other activities in the park include tours of its lakes and caves, visits to Dian Fossey’s tomb, and one to two day treks on Bisoke and Karisimbi Volcano respectively.

Mountain Gorilla View Lodge is home to 30 individual chalets, constructed form locally-available material, each with a living area, fireplace, en suite bathroom, and private verandah. The main lodge’s restaurant serves up gourmet local cuisine garnered from farm fresh produce, while the on-site bar is stocked with all your home favourites.
