Accommodation

Below is some of the wonderful accommodation to include on your journey.

Mikeno Lodge £££££

  • Democratic Republic of Congo

This is a great little lodge and the only small, boutique-style property in the area. Each of the 12, solid lava stone and natural thatch bungalows sit in the heart of Virunga National Park, overlooking the forest or valley with Nyiragongo and Mikeno volcanoes in the distance. Inside each of the large rooms, the Congolese decor and warm fabrics are mixed with simple, but very comfortable African furniture, sleek stone-carved baths and en-suite showers. Given the rainforest environment, large open fires in each room, help keeps the chill at bay.

Bukima Camp £££££

  • Democratic Republic of Congo

Bukima means the place where there are monkeys and whilst it was originally built as a base for researchers, it is now used as the starting point for Virunga mountain gorilla treks. The six, large meru-style safari tents (4 doubles and 2 twins) are all en-suite (flushing loos and bucket showers) with a small dresser and simple safari chairs, with a similar, but much larger main mess tent, where wholesome, simple meals are taken and where batteries can be charged. This is very much a base canvas and wooden camp from which to explore the surrounding area and whilst simple, it is clean, comfortable and well located for access to the gorilla trekking.
