Virunga Lodge

Parc National des Volcans, Rwanda

With its isolated setting high on a mountaintop, Virunga Lodge is a calm sanctuary from the rest of the world, offering spectacular 360-degree views of the Virunga Volcanoes and the twin lakes of Bulera and Ruhondo, especially breathtaking at sunrise and sunset. Eight spacious “bandas” (cottages) feature a large bathroom and private outdoor terrace. Guests gather around a candle-lit table at a single seating to share the events of the day. Later, you can relax around a log fire and swap more tales of adventure. Lighting is via solar power (which also provides the hot water), and phones and cameras can be charged in the main lounge, where there’s also intermittent Wi-Fi.
