Sitting atop one of Rwanda's "thousand hills", Virunga Lodge has one of the most breath-taking views of any lodge in Africa. Cloud-topped volcanoes lie on one side, with shadowy blue lakes on the other.
The 10 contemporary, stone bandas are softened by fresh flowers and draped in traditional kanga fabrics. Hot water bottles and hurricane lamps add warmth to the pleasant interiors, which feature electrical points for charging phones and cameras. From the private terraces, the views are spectacular - both the Virunga Massif and the twin lakes of Bulera and Ruhonda are visible.
After a hard day of trekking in the neighbouring hills, Virunga Lodge's heart-warming food helps replenish weary legs, whilst complimentary massages relax and rejuvenate.
