It’s vital to acknowledge that Virunga Lodge might not align with everyone’s tastes. It champions a specific kind of luxury – one that’s interwoven with nature. Those in pursuit of glitzy opulence might find other options better meet their expectations. However, for travelers who value luxury in tranquility, in views that stretch for miles, and in the vast experiences Rwanda offers, Virunga Lodge is an ideal choice.

Furthermore, Virunga Lodge’s proximity to the park strikes a balance. It’s distant from bustling tourist spots, ensuring privacy and seclusion. Yet, it must be addressed that the travelling time to the meeting point for gorilla trekking is approximately 45 minutes, which whilst not excessive, is much longer than would otherwise be found at other lodges closer to the park entrance.

While gorilla trekking remains a premier attraction for visitors staying at Virunga Lodge, the range of activities extends beyond this. Delve into the rich cultural history of Rwanda with curated village visits or pay homage to conservation efforts at Dian Fossey’s grave. For those who seek a broader perspective, helicopter flights offer aerial views of the region’s expanse, showcasing its vastness and beauty.

Conservation and Sustainability

Virunga Lodge isn’t just a luxury retreat; it’s at the forefront of sustainable tourism. With green initiatives, the lodge relies significantly on solar power and rainwater harvesting. Beyond its environmental commitments, Virunga Lodge maintains a deep connection with the local community. The bee-keeping and mushroom cultivation projects don’t just support sustainability; they encourage local community growth and empowerment.
