Virunga National Park is currently closed for security reasons. It is unlikely to reopen until 2019.
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 décor and warm farbrics 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. Wooden verandas outside each room and the main bar and seating area are the perfect place to watch the Colobus and Blue monkeys leaping in the trees above, but as the sun sets and the temperature drops, private fires in the main restaurant provide warmth as you sit down to enjoy delicious home cooked food and lively conversation.
Why We Like It
The staff are keen to make your stay memorable as possible the lodge should be commended in opening up this beautiful part of the world. Given its location, at night there is a chance to sit back and relax with a nightcap as the lava from distant volcanoes glows red under a starry night sky.
