Virunga Lodge enjoys a stunning hillside location with views of the Virunga volcanoes and twin lakes of Ruhondo and Bulera. There are 10 spacious rooms, all stylishly furnished and with large ensuite bathrooms with hot and cold running water. You have your own terrace where you can unwind in peace and seclusion.

The now well established gardens are terraced into the hillside with lots of hidden seating areas and sunken gardens to sit and relax. The main building has a terrace, perfect for relaxing and enjoying a refreshing drink as you admire the stunning views. The lounge bar has an open fire to warm the chilly nights. Meals are served at the communal dining table, and mealtimes provide a great opportunity to socialise.  

Virunga Lodge is a perfect base from which to explore Parc National des Volcans, which offers excellent gorilla trekking opportunties. It is quite a way from the park HQ, so early starts are needed, but are well worth the effort, as spending time among wild gorillas is an amazing experience. Other activities include climbing Visoke or Karisimbi volcanoes, tracking golden monkeys, visiting Diane Fossey's tomb and taking nature walks in the area. You can also visit villages where you see projects supported by the lodge that are improving the lives of local people, and watch an Intore dance performed by a dance troup sponsored by the lodge.
