Mountain Gorilla View Lodge

Spacious cottages near Mount Karisimbi in the Virunga Mountains

a comfortable lodge to enjoy the beautiful surroundings

A short drive from the starting points of some fantastic gorilla trekking

The mid-range Mountain Gorilla View Lodge is located on the foothills of Mt Karisimbi in Kinigi, a 15-minute drive to the Parc National des Volcans main entrance. It is a very handy base from which to enjoy the many gorilla activities this region offers.

The 30 cottages are built of brick, stone and tile are well positioned to provide seclusion from other rooms. The décor is simple and furniture comfortable. Each cottage has a basic, en-suite bathroom, a private veranda and a large sitting room with a fireplace to keep warm during the cool evenings. The restaurant provides an exceptional array of tasty choices from the buffet. The lodge grounds are full of intriguing birdlife and afford wonderful views of the volcanoes.

The lodge is close to the starting point of Gorilla and Golden Monkey tracking. You can also enjoy a hike up to the grave of Dian Fossey or trek up Mount Karisimbi and see the huge caldera below. A visit to the twin lakes of Lake Burera and Lake Ruhondo can provide wonderful boat rides and canoeing excursions.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… so we connect with local communities, and strive for sustainable travel to make your holiday special
