"Rustic, good accomodation, highly recommended, again staff are excellent and as the whole review is positive and some would say its not believable, a critism would be the staff try too hard to please!"
"The Rwandan people we met at the Mountain View Gorilla Lodge were great fun as we celebrated Shirley's birthday with drinks, cake and dancing."
"Perfectly situated close to the starting point for the gorilla trek and the accommodations were very nice - perhaps one of the most comfortable beds on the trip. After 2 days spent in planes and airports, we thought we had died and gone to heaven when we got into that nice bed warmed by a hot water bottle. The food was satisfactory, buffet style for breakfasts and dinner. A very nice touch was the group of local children who came to the lodge each evening and danced for the guests out on the grass. Not to be missed."

"Huge cabin in lovely garden with awesome views of the volcanoes. the staff were very helpful, food good. The log fires were very welcome each evening.
The only downside was the rather odd shower and how cold the bathroom was."
