The stylish & well-equipped rooms combine ethnically influenced décor with something of a country house feel, extremely spacious, and come complete with log fire, mini-bar, tea/coffee- making facilities, mini-safe, direct-radio contact with the main building and a fabulously earthy bedroom with tub & shower. The restaurant & lounge area is in the main building & serves a different 3-course set menu daily.

In addition to gorilla tracking, it offers birding expeditions, & trips to Musanze and Lake Kivu & Burera. The steep climb from the car park to the accommodation makes this Lodge highly unsuited to disabled travelers, though it should be perfectly manageable to anybody fit & supple enough to track mountain gorillas.

The main building comprises reception, sitting room with a cozy area, library, fireplace, dining area craft shop, bathrooms and outside balcony with views of the volcanoes.
