Located on the edge of Mgahinga National Park, home to habituated groups of mountain gorillas, Mount Gahingo Lodge is surrounded by the spectacular Virunga Volcanoes.
Accommodation is in nine thatched bandas, all with private facilities. The lodge is the ideal place to stay tracking gorillas in Nkuringo (for those with permits), but the other activities on offer include: climbing a volcano, birding or nature walks, swimming in the emerald waters of Lake Mutanda, or simply taking in one of Africa’s most breathtaking landscapes.
The journey here is exhilarating as you drive through spectacular mountain scenery and look down across endless terraced slopes to emerald-green crater lakes far below. The lodge is a one hour flight or a long day’s drive – from Entebbe, or four hours’ drive from Kigali (with a border crossing). Your stay is all-inclusive of drinks, meals, laundry, all activities (except gorilla-tracking, for which you must pay separately for a pemit), and a soothing massage after your exertions!
