We would highly recommend this property to anyone planning a visit to Volcanoes National Park and would book here in a heartbeat if we were ever to return. Our cottage was impeccably clean when we checked in and was maintained that way throughout our three-night stay. There

I would highly recommend the Mountain Gorilla View Lodge as a place to stay if you are going to see the Mountain Gorillas and/or Golden Monkeys. Everyone was so accommodating, the food was great and the lodges are very spacious. The service extended beyond what is expected at a

Rooms were nice but spread out from the lodge if you have any mobility issues. Dinner buffet was nice with fresh fruits and deserts. Pineapple here rivals any pineapple I've eaten in Hawaii. The staff lights the fireplace in your room as well as leaving a hit water bottle in

Fantastic lodge with a knock out view of one of the volcanoes. Love the rooms with a fireplace and the staff give you a hot water bottle in bed for the chilly nights. January are the off season so there weren't many tourists around. That resulted in meals service a la carte.

You can rent gaiters for $5 USD and gloves for $5 USD, or bring your own. Leather work gloves are a good protection from the stinging nettles. I was just there a month ago. You will love the experience!

Hi Mike, On Day 1, we hiked to 10,000 ft; left the lodge before 7am and returned at 2pm. We were pretty tired, and spent the rest of the day resting/processing photos, Day 2 was much easier, and we were back at the lodge by noon. We had the energy for more adventures, but were not aware that the lodge offered any options for more activities. Other than birds, we saw no other wildlife on or around the lodge grounds.

"Rooms closer to the main building are convenient but near where the dance troupe performs each day so not as quiet."
"Rooms that we stayed were an individual cabin."
"Room 1 has great views across the grounds with the volcanoes in the background."
"Lodges on the top walk easier than the low walk rooms. We were about the 4 room from the restaurant/common area."
"Book any of the large cottages."
