Virunga Lodge

Rwanda's 'original' gorilla trekking lodge

Eco-luxe lodging overlooking volcanoes and twin lakes

This iconic lodge was built in 2004 by Praveen Moman and its style and location have made it a timeless classic.

Overlooking the Virunga Volcanoes, Musanze valley, Lake Bulera and Lake Ruhondo, the lodge affords perhaps the most dramatic views in the entire area. 

The signature Virunga hospitality featuring personal butler service, locally-inspired cuisine and inclusive single malt whiskies, premium wines and cocktails will certainly be memorable elements of a stay at Virunga Lodge, not to mention in-house spa and massage treatments.

Each of the 10 bandas features en suite bathrooms, warming fireplaces and terraces overlooking the volcanoes or twin lakes. Two spacious deluxe bandas offer full sitting rooms with stone fireplaces, and private terrace.
