Mountain Gorilla View Lodge

Virunga Mountains, Rwanda

Mountain Gorilla View Lodge

Mountain Gorilla View Lodge is situated just outside Kinigi National Park, in the Virunga Mountain Range. It offers great mountain views and simple but comfortable accommodation for guests on gorilla safaris.

Mountain Gorilla View Lodge is a comfortable mountain retreat situated at the foot of Mt Sabinyo, with great views of the rest of the Virunga Mountains range. It is located only a short distance from the Kinigi Park Headquarters, and serves as an ideal base for tours of the park and for gorilla safaris.

Mountain Gorilla View is a fairly simple lodge. It has just 36 guest cottages, as well as a cosy bar and restaurant area constructed in the traditional Rwandese style, with grass thatch roof. Nearby is a Rwandese-style homestead which you can freely explore in your leisure time after tracking gorillas in the mountains.


Mountain Gorilla View Lodge offers 36 guest cottages, all with en-suite bathrooms and fireplaces (it can get very cool in the hills!) The rooms are basic but comfortable, with hot running water and electricity. Wi-Fi is available in the hotel lounge, but not in the rooms.


Meals consist of mostly local fare and are served in the dining area. Picnic lunches can be provided for day trips. Mountain Gorilla View is typically booked full-board basis, with drinks excluded.
