Virunga Lodge

Features & Highlights

Virunga Lodge Summary

Virunga Lodge lies perched on a ridge offering some of the most amazing views of the Virunga Volcanoes and the beautiful lakes of Ruhonda and Bulera. Virunga Lodge is one of the premier lodges in the Volcanoes National Park region and is the ideal base from which to embark on a Gorilla Trekking excursion into the national park. The park is an hours drive away from the lodge however it is a scenic drive.
What Africa Uncovered says…
Virunga Lodge although an hours drive from the National Park gates, offers amazing views from its elevated position and in our opinion is one of the best places to stay for Gorilla Trekking in the Volcanoes National Park.
