Lulimbi Tented Camp

The newest of Virunga's camps, Lulimbi lies in the Ishasha Valley, on the eastern edge of the park's Central Sector. In striking contrast with the volcanoes and gorillas of the south, this beautiful area is dominated by savannah plains, through which the Ishasha River cuts its way.

The camp is made up of eight canvas tents, each with running water, flush toilets and solar showers. Although relatively simple, these are comfortable and well equipped. The tents all face the Ishasha River, with private verandas perfectly positioned to watch a nearby pod of hippos.

Activities available include walks to Lake Edward, game drives, community visits, elephant monitoring patrols, birding walks, fishing and boat trips.

WHY WE LIKE IT

Lulimbi Camp represents a completely different proposition to the park’s southern camps, but it serves as a pleasant reminder that Virunga remains largely unexplored and inaccessible to tourism. Lulimbi’s savannah plains are enticingly isolated, making this camp an exciting new addition to the steadily growing number of Virunga properties.
