Mount Gahinga Lodge
Volcanoes in the mist
Nestled in the foothills of the Virunga Volcanoes, Mount Gahinga is an exclusive Ugandan adventure lodge that has the impressive backdrop of three of the volcanoes themselves. Its rustic charm creates an absorbing atmosphere of tranquility and history.
The luxury safari lodge was built to echo local techniques and design and the main building features a rustic living space with a warm central fireplace that offers the ideal environment for relaxing at the end of the day. There is an outside terrace and a spacious sunroom adjoining the living area, completing the peaceful and open style. Each of the 9 chalets has been thoroughly renovated to offer unparalleled luxury in this region. Each room has a fireplace and an en-suite bathroom and all chalets are reached by taking a short stroll through the large gardens that fill the lodge with life.
As you would imagine there is plenty of adventure here to keep you active and you can hike a local volcano, go trekking to see the Golden Monkeys, or spend a morning visiting the local Batwa community who also often perform traditional dancing.
