Gorilla Mountain View Lodge

Explore Rwanda

Situated in the magnificent Volcanoes National Park, Gorilla Mountain View Lodge provides guests with spectacular views of the Virunga Mountains and is surrounded by pretty gardens. The lodge offers a bar and restaurant, serving up home cooked food that is quite delicious.

The property is only 15 minutes away from the main headquarters of the park, so booking excursions is made easy. Gorilla trekking is the main activity from the lodge, with 8 habituated gorilla families found in the park. Guests will need relatively good fitness to traverse the jungle terrain in search of these gentle giants, however, the experience of observing this endangered primate in the wild is well worth it.

Gorilla Mountain View Lodge offers 25 individual cottages which all offer views of the Virunga Volcanoes and high hills of Ruhengeri. Each room is en- suite and features a fireplace, hair dryers, umbrellas, hot water bottles, tea and coffee making facilities and a mini bar. The cottages are built of stone and are fairly simple in terms of furnishings although are relatively spacious and comfortable. As the lodge is situated at quite a high altitude it can become quite cold at night, so ensuring to pack something warm for the evenings is recommended. With a chill in the air a fire place certainly becomes a most welcome addition to rooms.

Served its purpose - was not of the same quality as other hotels on this trip but was convenient to the gorillas

The grounds are lovely with nice views of the volcano. The property seems a bit tired, has perhaps seen better days.
