Tucked away in the foothills of the Virunga Volcanoes, on the boarder of Uganda, Rwanda, and the DRC lies Mount Gahinga Lodge. The lodge consists of 9 traditional pygmy style huts, with modern conveniences such as En-suite, composting toilets, bush style showers, and Wi-Fi in the main lodge. Take in the views of Mounts Sabinyo, Gahinga, and Muhuvura from this eco-conscious lodge.
Each banda is rounded to preserve the traditional, local building style, and the interiors are stylish and create an atmosphere of modern comfort alongside the adventure of being on safari. The thatched roofs are just another eco-sensitive element of this wonderful lodge.

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
