Short description

The perfect base from which to track gorillas and monkeys, and climb a volcano


Recommended for:
Lodges | Wildlife

The magnificent Virunga Safari Lodge is set on a stunning hillside in Rwanda’s Parc National des Volcans. The lodge and its terraced gardens offer panoramic views of the Virunga volcanoes and the lakes Ruhondo and Bulera.

The eight bandas are set into the hillside and command one of the best views from any camp in Africa.

Aside from gorilla tracking , guests can climb a volcano, track the golden monkey, visit Dian Fossey’s grave or go for gentle strolls around the picturesque villages near the lakes.

We like: Sitting with a family of gorillas in Volcanoes National Park
