Mountain Gorilla View Lodge

This basic yet comfortable lodge is conveniently located just 15 minutes from the main entrance to Rwanda’s Park National des Volcans. It provides a good base from which to access the Park and the guided tours to see endangered Mountain Gorillas and Golden Monkeys.

The lodge covers four acres of attractive landscape on the slopes of Mount Sabyinyo and it has wonderful views of the nearby Virunga Volcanoes.

Guests at Mountain Gorilla View Lodge have space and privacy in large detached stone and thatch cottages which are scattered throughout the lodge’s grounds.

With its individual cottages, beautiful views and convenient location, Mountain Gorilla View Lodge is a great accommodation option for gorilla excursions in Rwanda.


Mountain Gorilla View Lodge is comprised of 30 separate guest cottages situated within its spacious grounds. The accommodation is of a simple style but each detached cottage is large and comfortable with contemporary furniture and individual artwork.

After a long day’s trekking in the Park National des Volcans, guests can unwind in their private lounge. Cosy fire places have been thoughtfully added to every cottage so that guests can warm themselves against the cool evening air at this high altitude.

There are spacious en-suite shower rooms and the private verandas allow guests to relax and enjoy the wonderful views of the Virunga Volcanoes.


The public areas of Mountain Gorilla View Lodge include a restaurant serving home-cooked food and a small bar.


Due to its close proximity to the Park National des Volcans, Mountain Gorilla View Lodge is ideally placed for tracking endangered Mountain Gorillas and Golden Monkeys. Cultural excursions to local villages can be arranged. There is a regular cultural dance performance by a local dance troop.
