Mountain Gorillas Nest


You couldn't sleep any closer to the gorillas if you tried

So close to the entrance to Parc National des Volcanes (Volcanoes National Park) that you can 'almost' roll out of bed and onto your gorilla tracking hike. With 40 rooms available and being this close to the park it's no surprise that most visitors to the gorillas choose to stay at Mountain Gorillas Nest Lodge rather than anywhere else. 

Your stay might not be exclusive and romantic but you can share in the joys of seeing the mountain gorillas with your fellow travellers. Built in a grove of trees, the rooms are arranged in a large semi-circle around a central courtyard. The rooms are all en-suite and there is also a spacious restaurant with a large bar. The food is simple and sufficient and electricity is supplied by a generator. The staff here have seen a million visitors head out on gorilla treks, so if you are worried in the slightest simply ask. They also provide morning wake ups so that you don't miss your gorilla appointment!

A gorilla visit can entail anything from a 1-4 hour trek through the forest, led by experienced trackers who have spent their entire lives living in or close to the forest. Your trek will be enchanting as you weave through overhanging vines, moss-covered Hagenia trees and giant Lobelias that thrive in the tropical climate. You may spot golden monkeys or see buffalo, bush duiker and a wide variety of bird life. But the high point, of course, one of the greatest wildlife experiences on earth, will be spending an hour with the gentle giant gorillas as they go about their daily life, feeding, playing, resting, raising their young.
