Mountain Gorilla View Lodge Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda

Located about 15 minutes drive from the main headquarters of Rwanda's Volcanoes National Park , this is the perfect base from which to explore the area and organise treks to see the mountain gorillas that have made this area so famous. The lodge and the cottages are built of local stone and wood and blends in to the natural environment. The facilities are good with spacious, simply furnished cottages equipped with log fires, a restaurant and a basic bar. The main draw of this lodge is of course its location - gorillas have even been seen in the surrounding forest from the lodge!


Mountain Gorilla View Lodge


There is a bar and restaurant as well as lush gardens but the hotel does not offer many other facilities. The main purpose to your stay is to visit the gorillas and explore the stunning mountain scenery in the area.


The main activity at the lodge is gorilla trekking athough you may see plenty of wildlife passing the lodge from your room if you are lucky.
