You’ll depart from Kigali after breakfast and begin the drive north to Musanze, Rwanda’s second largest city. Nestled in the shadows of the five Virunga volcanoes, Musanze is to be your home base for your gorilla trekking experience. Villa Gorilla or similar. Dinner.
Your Home in Gorilla Country is this locally built and managed lodge. Your manager and host is Gilbert, a local family man and an experienced hotelier who has hosted such luminaries as Bill Gates, Jack Nicklaus and more. Gilbert and his staff will give the same welcoming service to you and describes their niche as “feel at home service” where you can relax before and after your wildlife trek to see the gorillas.
Villa Gorilla is a cozy comfortable home away from home offering experienced and personalized services. The meals you receive around the outdoor fire pit with the Volcanoes National Park in the background are second to none and the staff are always happy to go the extra mile.
Villa Gorilla is located at Kinigi, and within the villa, there are 4 comfortable double occupancy bedrooms, each with private bath and toilet facilities.
In addition, Villa Gorilla has 3 superb en suite garden bungalows, all with volcano views.
Accommodation upgrades are available however we support Villa Gorilla as the lodge sustains many local staff and their families. This gives them the opportunity to provide schooling and other important needs to their children.
