Volcanoes Safaris celebrates more than ten years of the Virunga Lodge in Rwanda. For it is happy as heck about their new living quarters. For  they are all built green.

 Volcanoes Safaris staying at virunga lodge


For reference, Volcanoes was the first tourism company to open in Rwanda. I mean post-conflict. Virunga Lodge is also now a thriving Eco friendly property. That’s for visiting guests to enjoy. Especially during their trip. All while they track endangered mountain gorillas in nature.

This 67 square meters of bandas named Ibiyaga (lake) and Ibirunga (volcano) offer some spectacular nature views of Rwanda.


Each banda is complete with a stone fireplace, living room and private terrace, where guests can watch the sun set over the surrounding panoramas in the comfort of total seclusion.

Perched high on a ridge, offering breath-taking views of the Virunga Volcanoes and twin lakes, Virunga Lodge is the ultimate eco friendly luxury property for tracking the endangered mountain gorillas. The addition of the two new bandas – the Kinyarwanda named Ibiyaga (for lake) and Ibirunga (for volcano) brings the lodge’s total number of green living bandas to ten.

The organic design of the new Deluxe Bandas includes solar hot water and power.

As well, hand crafted furniture and lampshades, made by Volcanoes and other local craftsmen are mixed with the influence of local artists. This is also used to finish the overall design of the newly constructed rooms. All to reflect the rich history of the area.

A great place one day I hope to visit. Oh I hope so.
