10 Cool Accommodations in the Gorilla Highlands Region

We believe that what you do is the heart of any tour. But not everybody is like that. Many people prefer to start with where to stay …

So let us take you to some accommodations we have recently used for our guests, presenting a true rainbow of price points and locations in Rwanda and Uganda. 

The interior design of Arcadia Lodges at Bunyonyi (featured image; Uganda) is definitely special, and their viewing platform provides the most iconic vista of the “lake of little birds”.

Centric Hotel in Kigali (Rwanda) distinguishes itself by more than just wallpaper and furniture design, they call their balcony view “a summary of the city” because you see everything that matters.

The outlook at Nyungwe Nziza Ecolodge in Kitabi (Rwanda) is from a different world. One of Africa’s ancient rainforests will be the background of your foosball match.

Mgahinga Gorilla Triangle Lodge next to Mgahinga National Park (Uganda) is on the other hand made grander by the Muhabura volcano behind it. (If you can’t make it to the top and back in one day, there is a mountain hut on the slope.)

The gardens of Paradise Kivu on the shore of Lake Kivu (Rwanda) help the place keep the excellent culinary reputation of its mother lodge Paradise Malahide just some minutes away.

A rather different environment, the savannah outskirts of Queen Elizabeth National Park (Uganda), define Kazinga Wilderness Safari Camp. It is not uncommon to find wildlife on that path.

Comfy couches to relax in provide the extra touch at Guereza Canopy Lodge near Kibale National Park (Uganda), which mirrors its sister establishment Kibale Forest Lodge.

Once known for shoestring solutions, Nshongi Camp on the very edge of Bwindi Impenetrable National Park (Uganda) where forest elephants sometimes pass by, has much more to choose from these days …

Mondi Lodge in Kisoro Town (Uganda) proudly presents an eclectic style that may have no peer in the Gorilla Highlands region.

On the other side of the Virunga volcanoes, the guest house in the compound of the Miller family offers a different take on Musanze (Rwanda).
