Mountain Gorilla View Lodge is found in northern Rwanda, right on the edge of the Volcanoes National Park. The park is known for its populations of the mountain gorilla, and here guests can experience the once-in-a-lifetime experience of trekking these incredible creatures in their natural habitat. The lodge can be found in the foothills of Mount Karisimbi, a volcanic mountain that is part of the Virunga Massif. It consists of 30 comfortable chalets, each with en-suite bathrooms, fireplaces and private verandas. The lodge’s facilities and services include a restaurant, bar, shop, WiFi Internet, and laundry service. Delicious meals are served, and include fresh produce that is purchased from the surrounding rural community, helping the lodge to give back. The lodge was also constructed using locally-sourced materials. Gorilla trekking takes place in Volcanoes National Park, which is a mere 15-minute drive from the lodge.
