Private & Remote

Set on a stunning hillside, the magnificent Virunga Lodge boasts panoramic vistas of the Virunga Volcanoes and the beautiful lakes of Ruhondo and Bulera. Each of ten luxurious bandas named after the Rwandan lakes features a spacious bedroom with a cosy fireplace, as well as a private terrace with sweeping views of the breathtaking surrounds.

Those in need of relaxation can revel in the comfort of the main lodge or spend some time in the Dian Fossey Map Room. Each guest will enjoy the opportunity for a relaxing complementary massage. Adventures include tracking gorillas and golden monkeys, hikes to the top of the volcanoes, scenic walks through the picturesque villages surrounding the lodge or day trips to the lively towns of Kigali or Kampala.


Tranquil Atmosphere

Choose between 10 comfortable stone Bandas that come in deluxe, double and twin configurations. All have en-suite bathrooms, as well as private verandahs and mosquito nets. After a busy day, return to the lodge where you can enjoy a hearty three-course dinner while admiring the spectacular views that surround the lodge. Relax around the evening fire and exchange stories of your day before returning to your room for a restful night’s sleep.



 The magical terraced gardens on the ridge offer a tranquil place to look out over Rwanda, and to contemplate what to do with your day – anything from Gorilla tracking, climbing a volcano, tracking golden monkeys, visiting Dian Fossey’s memorial, or gentle strolls through picturesque villages near the lakes, hike to the waterfalls, see the Intore dancers or visit a local school. Virunga Volcanoes Lodge is an eco lodge powered by solar power, and has a minimal impact on the environment, this is remote beauty at its best.
