Mountain Gorilla View Lodge in Volcanoes National Park Rwanda

Why to stay at Gorilla view Lodge?
The lodge is situated around 15-20 Mountain Gorilla View Lodge in Rwandaminutes drive from Volcanoes National Park headquarters. At the head quarter, briefing about the dos and don’ts while with mountain gorilla takes place.

What is special about the lodge?
There are 30 individual stone and thatch cottages at Mountain Gorilla View, which although a little sparse and characterless, are large, clean, comfortable and come with private verandas, en suite bathrooms, tea and coffee making facilities and a very welcome fireplace in the lounge, which is lit by the lodge’s attentive staff in the evenings. At the fire place, visitors socialize with each other while enjoying some drinks.

Recent building work Mountain Gorilla View has seen the completion of the restaurant, bar and dining area. A sprawling bungalow like building, it is in design classically upcountry, its flagstone floors and maroon coloring typical of the style. A large plastic gorilla sits at the restaurant’s entrance, its vaguely bizarre presence offset by what can only be described as being one of the warmest environments you’re likely to encounter. The food is delicious, the portions large, and the service – from restaurant floor to kitchen – is quite wonderful.

What are some of the activities enjoyed while at this lodge?
While at Mountain Gorilla View lodge, visitors can enjoy gorilla trekking, golden monkey tracking, bird viewing, nature rambles and cultural excursions.
