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 our first trip to South America and we were a little nervous. But Adventure Life made things so easy! All our questions were answered before we left, and our guide, Vidal, was amazing! He gave us enough space to explore without rushing us along. He also knew where the best picture taking opportunities were, which was great.
