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.
