Virunga Lodge – Exterior view

Virunga Lodge

Set on a stunning hillside with terraced gardens, the magnificent Virunga Lodge boasts elevated panoramic views of the Virunga Volcanoes and the beautiful volcanic lakes of Ruhondo and Bulera.

Each of the ten luxurious stone bandas has a private terrace with sweeping views of the breathtaking surrounds, and feature a spacious bedroom with a cosy fireplace as well as a private ensuite bathroom connected by a short, covered walkway.

The lodge feels charmingly rustic and the location is hard to beat - a truly special place to spend a 3 or 4 nights. You can visit Volcanoes National Park about a 45/50 minute drive away (for gorilla trekking) as well as walks to see the Golden Monkeys and trips on the lake.

Those in need of relaxation can revel in the comfort of the main lodge or spend some time in the Dian Fossey Map Room. Virunga Lodge is an eco lodge powered by solar power, and has a minimal impact on the environment. Fantastic food is served each day in the dining room, and morning tea or coffee is brought to you room with your wake-up call.

Activities include tracking gorillas and golden monkeys, hikes to the top of the volcanoes, gentle strolls around the picturesque villages near the lakes, or day trips to the lively towns of Kigali or Kampala.
