The start of our 16 day trip with Volcanoes Safaris - what a start!
The Lodge is magnificent - 360 degree views of volcanoes, lakes and the most beautiful countryside.
The accomodation in very private bandas is over the top. Private view terrace, views from every room - including the bath! Great linens and staff that are amazing.
You can also visit the local school - stop and buy pens and notebooks in Kigali for them.
The 2 days we spent with the gorillas - one of the best experiences ever - and we have travelled alot.
If you can - stay here and use Volcanoes Safaris for your trip. Ask for Moses as your guide.
