The Mountain Gorilla View Lodge is an ecolodge that is perfectly situated for gorilla tracking in Rwanda. The 30 individual cottages have been built on 4 acres of land on the slopes of Mount Karisimbi, one of the volcanic mountains that makes up a part of the Virunga Massif. The stone and thatch cottages each have en suite facilities, a small lounge with a fire place, and a private veranda. The cottages are sizable and are positioned to provide each cottage with space for privacy. There is a separate restaurant and bar area where meals are served using local produce.

The Mountain Gorilla View Lodge has 30 individual cottages constructed out of brick and tile. These bungalows are spacious, with simple and comfortable furnishings. Each has an en suite bathroom with shower. When the high altitude of the mountains causes a chill to creep in at night, you can warm yourself by the fireplace. The grounds are well maintained and provide beautiful views of the volcanoes. Electricity and hot water is supplied by a generator which runs in the evenings beginning at about 6 pm. Please ask on arrival to clarify exact timings.
The central area has a basic bar and a restaurant where the food is home cooked fare using local produce to support the surrounding rural communities. It can get quite chilly here in the winters, however staff can provide you with a ‘bucket’ of heated charcoal to place next to the table to keep you toasty and warm.
