Our party had 3 nights at the Virunga lodge as a base for gorilla and golden monkey tracking. The lodge was excellent in every respect. The cottages are very comfortable and spacious. The bar is excellent and although Internet unreliable, that has to be expected. There are multiple charging pints in the bar. The staff are all very helpful and friendly. The show on the helicopter strip was very atmospheric and the views are breathtaking. I would highly recommend Virunga Lodge.
