Hidden in Uganda’s southern corner, just across the border from Rwanda, nestled at the base of the Virunga Volcanoes, Mount Gahinga is a rustic, charming lodge. Its location forms the perfect base from where to trek Mountain Gorilla, the rare golden monkey, climb a volcano or wander through local villages and learn more about the Batwa pygmies’ culture.
The six stone bandas – all individually named after each of the Virunga Volcanoes – with papyrus roofs and en-suite shower reflect the magic of the aesthetic traditions of the Bufimbira people, with their distinct colours.
Trekking Mountain Gorillas through the dense African forests is a magical experience. From the lodge daily treks are organized, with a maximum of only 8 visitors per group. Enjoy spectacular views of the surrounding volcanoes and the Kisoro valley below from the lodge terrace or your private veranda. The price for Uganda’s trekking permits are substantially lower ($600pp) compared with its neighbour Rwanda ($1500pp), making this a more affordable option.make an Enquiry
