Navigation Tip - Go Directly To Prices, Reviews, Map, Photos, Video & Room Rate Guide For Gorillas Volcanoes Hotel

Close to the Volcanoes National Park, home of the iconic mountain gorillas of Rwanda is the small township of Ruhengeri in Musanze. A bustling town, it serves as one of the locations where adventure tourists looking to go gorilla viewing can stay. If you are seeking out economical accommodations with the facilities typical of a rudimentary hotel, then the Gorillas Volcanoes Hotel is the place for you. A multi-level property with landscaped gardens, it has a riot of colorful flowers blooming. The hotel includes a free-form swimming pool and an adequately equipped fitness center for the use of active vacationers along with a bar where you can order drinks. You also have the option of using their luggage storage facilities. The Gorillas Volcanoes Hotel offers you 30 rooms in all. Travelers can choose from the Deluxe Rooms with double beds or the Twin Rooms with two single beds. You can also opt for the Executive Suites that include a separate living room. Each of the air-conditioned rooms is welcoming in its simplicity with Rwandan art on the walls, a small sitting area, and fresh flowers to liven it up. The room also includes a television with satellite connection. Ensuite bathrooms come with a shower or bathtub, vanity, hair dryer, bathrobes, and the basic toiletries typical of an affordable establishment. You will also have access to your own balcony where you can sit for a while and enjoy the cool mountain breezes with views of the volcanic peaks of the Volcanoes Park (view map) or the pool and gardens. Enjoy simple, unpretentious meals that include global and authentic Rwandan cuisine. You can dine in the hotel's restaurant or try the poolside dining option. The dishes are cooked with organic ingredients sourced from the community farms close by. On some nights, the hotel offers barbecue fare.

After a buffet-style breakfast, you can set out to explore the attractions around Musanze. The underground caves of Musanze are a must visit on your holiday in East Africa because of the impressive rock formations. While you are there, you might also meet some of the resident Rwandan bats. Since the town is located close to the Volcanoes National Park, you can go on a touring trail that takes you to see the stunning, varied biomes of the forests with their distinct flora and fauna. Of course, you must take the time to meet the famed mountain gorillas. After a short briefing on the etiquettes of gorilla families, you can accompany your expert guide to meet them. Follow a picturesque trail through the forest that can take you from an hour to more than four hours before you come upon the family assigned to you. Another of the fascinating residents of the park are the golden monkeys that inhabit the bamboo forests. Choose yet another trail, and you can scale the sides of the Bisoke and Karisimbi mountains for delightful panoramas. Trip out to the grave of Dian Fossey where you can spend a few moments of quiet reverence for the woman who gave her life for the conservation of her beloved gorillas. You could also visit the Iby'Iwacu Village to meet the wise elders of the native people. Share their age-old lore as you sample their unique cuisine and culture. You could also learn to make artifacts or take part in their songs and dances.

Things To Note When Staying At Gorillas Volcanoes Hotel

  1. Includes facilities like a swimming pool, fitness center and conference rooms that take away from the authentic safari experience in Rwanda. Does not include spa massage facilities
  2. Has a large number of rooms that can accommodate up to 60+ tourists at full capacity. Not appropriate for guests looking for a quiet, personalized vacation stayover
  3. Rooms and decor are basic; does not have any elements that add a "wow" factor. It is best not to expect any frills
  4. Room views are variable with some of them offering vistas of the mountains, pool, or gardens. Location in a busy part of the Rwandan town of Ruhengeri and can be noisy at times
  5. Food quality is adequate, and there is a need for improvement

SAFARI TRIP IDEA FOR GORILLAS VOLCANOES HOTEL RWANDA

When staying at Gorillas Volcanoes Hotel during your gorilla trekking safari in Rwanda, we recommend combining it with Akagera, Nyungwe and a city tour of Kigali. You may optionally extend out to other wilderness areas of Gishwati-Mukura ending with a beach vacation at Lake Kivu or even extending out to the exotic spice island of Zanzibar or Lamu, or even Mombasa.
