Villa Gorilla is just five minutes from the headquarters of Volcanoes National Park in Kinigi and a two hour drive from Kigali airport. Stay at one of the four comfortable en suite rooms or three garden bungalows of this boutique hotel to enjoy stunning views of the surrounding landscape. This is an ideal base for exploring the famous park which is known for its population of gorillas and was once the research site of Dian Fossey. See the summit of Visoke Volcano, which is just a short trek away, and track the elusive golden monkeys or pay your respects at Dian Fossey’s grave. Savor delicious cuisine during your stay which includes full board at Villa Gorilla.
Villa Gorilla, from what we could tell, may be the best value in Virunga. You pay an affordable price but receive excellent service. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and private - ensure you recommend the Garden Villas - but the hospitality is beyond incredible. The staff are the most gracious and welcoming hosts and give you 5 star treatment! They were accommodating to our dietary needs and so respectful and caring during our stay! While it is not luxury by any means it has a unique vibe and local feel that sets it apart from other budget options in the area....Read More
