Guest Testimonial

I tracked the Susa group which is the one I really wanted to see - it was almost as if gorillas were tumbling out of every bush, shrub and even at times they seemed to fall from the sky.

- MM, Edinburgh



Mountain Gorilla View Lodge is located approximately fifteen minutes from the park offices, at the base of Sabyinyo Volcano.


All the rooms are individual spacious cottages with a fire place, sitting area and en-suite bathroom. The lodge consists of thirty cottages nineteen with king size beds, five cottages have twin beds and varnished flat stone floors and six VIP cottages have beautifully polished wooden floors.

As the lodge is at altitude the evenings can get quite cold the staff will make sure that your cottage is lovely and warm by lighting your own fireplace.

Weather

The driest months in Rwanda are between July and September and from December to January. The rains tend to fall between April and May and then again from October to November. However, trekking for gorillas involves entering the rainforests so you need to be prepared to get wet and muddy most of the year.
