Virunga Lodge, Volcanoes Safaris

Volcanoes Virunga Lodge has one of the best views over this exceptional scenic region. It could be argued that this is the finest outlook from any property in Africa with unique elevated scenes of two sparkling volcanic lakes and the volcanoes themselves. 
Run by the famous Volcanoes group, who operate top trips throughout Uganda and Rwanda, Virunga Lodge is slightly more affordable than nearby Sabyinyo and yet still offers a great level of service and overall accommodation. Although some might say Sabyinyo has taken the crown in recent years, we still like the Rwandan charm of Virunga. We also won't say no to a daily massage!

Virunga - The Details 

The Virunga Safari Lodge, set on a hillside, with terraced gardens, has eight bandas with a panoramic view of the Virunga volcanoes and the lakes Ruhondo and Bulera.

Aside from gorilla tracking, clients can climb a volcano or hike to the waterfalls, track a golden monkey, visit Dian Fossey's grave or go for gentle strolls around the picturesque villages near the lakes. In the afternoon, you can enjoy a complimentary massage before watching the fascinating Intore Dancers at the lodge.

Virunga lodge was spectacular and the food was outstanding, everyone was raving! And the birding there just hanging out at the lodge...sunbirds endemic to the Albertine Rift were just common garden birds!
