Ruhengeri is one of Rwanda’s most strategically important and visited cities thanks to its close proximity to Volcanoes National Park and its plethora of inhabitants — most notably the endangered mountain gorilla. Villanova Boutique Hotel is found in the heart of the city and is a terrific base from which to enjoy the area’s activities, from hiking and gorilla trekking to birdwatching and exploring.
Dian Fossey fell in love with the Virunga highlands and its gorillas, and showed the world that they could, too. Be the star of your own Gorillas in the Mist narrative and trek through the dense rainforest in order to get up-close and personal with some of the park’s habituated troops.
Accommodation at Villanova is available in its 10 en-suite bedrooms coming in Twin Room, Deluxe, Premium Junior Suite and Premium Grande Suite configurations. Some boast sitting rooms and dining areas while all have a safe, TV, minibar, and internet access. Enjoy complimentary breakfasts and happy hour, and lounge about in the hotel’s game and TV rooms that offer activities such as movies, cards, dart boards, and foosball tables.
