It is about an hour’s drive from the headquarters to where the lodge is situated. Virunga lodge is currently one of the area’s top lodges and has one of the suitable locations of any camp in Africa- up on a ridge sighting both Lake Burera and Lake Ruhondo. The lodge has 8 spacious stone rooms, all with wooden floors, chunky wooden furniture and large verandas. Virunga lodge is quite a sociable place to be as everyone eats at a large table in the evening. Apart from gorilla tracking, local “Indore” dance troupes perform here and massage sessions are available.
