When you come to trek the gorillas, you must stay here. The cottages are large,luxurious and totally comfortable. The food is very good. The service is extraordinary. The vistas from your cabin and the lodge are spectacular.

Stayed here for the promising views of the volcanoes. We got much more with the food, staff and arrangements. The couple running the Camp were super friendly as well as the staff. The cabins were super amazing from the comfort, views and eucalyptus fire wood burning at night in our rooms. Its was so amazing you want to move in.... More

Accomodations welcoming; staff took great care of us. Food was excellent. Enjoyed dining with other guests at the "main table" but I am sure they would have set our own table if we wanted privacy. Started a fire for us in the room and a wonderful hot water bottle waiting after dinner. Great jump off spot for gorilla treking. Road... More

The service was flawless the food outstanding and the room with fire place was large clean and well appointed. The only down side was the steep climb to the lodge and room but in essence that was not a problem because the staff went out of their way to assist anyone who needed it. I highly recommend the lodge needless... More

From the moment we (6 women) arrived, the staff and management greeted us warmly, with refreshing homemade lemonade and friendly assistance. The accommodations were lovely, extremely comfortable, and we immediately felt at home in the large sitting room in front of a warm fire to stave off the evening cool. The management team of Wendy and Finlay made sure to... More

..we stayed over on August 6th 2014 as the perfect stepping stone to the following morning's much anticipated gorilla trek. The property is really well maintained, the suites large with the much appreciated fireplace! And the surprise hot water bottle found at the foot of the bed when climbing in! The Lodge is managed by a delightful Scottish couple, Findlay... More

We LOVED our time at the lodge. We were very fortunate to stay there when the managers were in transition. Nelis spent some time assisting us with the settings on our camera to make sure we got some brilliant shots. This was the trend for our whole stay. Tracy cooked us a birthday cake and made us feel very special.... More

An excellent and well run lodge under the watchful eye of the Wolmarans husband and wife team. The staff have been well trained and provide the flexibility that is required when guests’ return to the lodge from Gorilla trekking is so unpredictable. A high standard has been set. Our room was spacious, comfortable and well equipped with a beautiful view... More

We had a wonderful stay here. Thank you to our fabulous hosts Fin and Wendy. You made our stay very memorable. The food was delicious and we were very grateful to have our shoes cleaned at the end of each trek. I highly recommend this lodge
