About
Description
Mountain Gorilla View Lodge stands amidst real wilderness with panoramic views of Rwanda’s volcano mountains and located just 1 km away from the Volcano National Park, making it the desired location for More Gorilla trekking enthusiastic guests. Mountain Gorilla View Lodge is surrounded by an exciting and rich biodiversity of shrubs, trees and various bird species among them the Grey Crowned Cranes or Balearica regulorum. The hotel has an eco-tourist approach whereas Natural Conservation is a priority and the local community is empowered. The Intore (local cultural dancers) will spice your stay and your days at Mountain Gorilla View Lodge will always be memorable. Less

You can rent gaiters for $5 USD and gloves for $5 USD, or bring your own. Leather work gloves are a good protection from the stinging nettles. I was just there a month ago. You will love the experience!
