Unforgettable Virunga volcano views

Sitting on a ridge, Virunga Lodge has sweeping views of the Virunga Volcanoes and the Bulera and Ruhondo twin lakes. This environmentally friendly lodge offers comfortable en-suite accommodation with gorgeous views – the perfect tranquil base for gorilla trekking safaris. 

Enjoy the incredible experience of gorilla trekking in Volcanoes National Park, where you can observe these beautiful creatures up close. Guests can also go golden monkey trekking, visit Dian Fossey’s grave, hike a volcano, head out on on a crater trail, watch an Intore dance performance, hike to Lake Bulera, walk through the nearby villages and enjoy a complimentary massage. 

Choose between 10 comfortable stone Bandas that come in deluxe, double and twin configurations. All have en-suite bathrooms with flushing toilets, double vanities, and showers with hot and cold water, as well as private verandahs and mosquito nets. After a busy day, return to the lodge where you can enjoy a hearty three-course dinner while admiring the spectacular views that surround the lodge. Relax around the evening fire and exchange stories of your day before returning to your room for a restful night’s sleep.
