Mutanda Lake Resort is a simple but breathtakingly located resort with a true touch of hospitality. We were here to go and do gorilla tracking at Rushaga area and it was lovely. The staff are so friendly and go out of their way to make sure you are happy. However, you will need to wake up early and set off... More

Wonderful lodge to come and rest for a view days, to swim in the gorgeous lakes or to walk around on one of the guided tours around the beautiful villages around the lake. Or ofcourse as a base to do the gorilla tour (which we didn't do). We stayed 3 nights and got very comfortable at the romantic fire place... More

We stayed here 2 nights as a base for our gorilla trek and it was perfect. The setting is great just on the shores of the lake. Rooms are spacious and clean, staff is great and managers are extremely friendly, and make sure everything runs smoothly. Thanks for a great stay !

We stayed here as a base for gorillas. The view was beautiful. We took the sunset cruise which was very fun. We decided to do it last minute so the guitar player wasn't available so book ahead. Staff was friendly but rarely at the reception desk which meant when our hot water didn't work we kept running between our room... More

Dear Sarah, We are happy with your positive remarks, but I also want to apologise for having been disturbed in your sleep by our policemen making phone calls at the reception during the night. We had told them that from 10 pm till 8 am reception is out of bounds. During our leave they had changed shifts and forgot to... More

This small resort was intimate and charming and has fantastic views of the lake and mountains. Our glass doors opened right out with the view of the lake. The food was excellent and the service great. When our canoe did not show up as planned, the hotel owner arranged for one of his people to come pick us up. We... More

After a day long hike searching the gorillas with success we arrived here. A sunset and a beer at our own porch overlooking the magnificent lake was the perfect end to this extraordinary day. The only thing that was a little bit less was the food, but it did not spoil our fun. Definitely a great place to stay.

Dear MadMax, We are delighted with you review, but wondering what went wrong with the food? It hardly happens that we don't satisfy our guests on that point. Nevertheless you had a good time while staying at Mutanda Lake Resort and that is what counts. More

Lake Mutanda is stunning, possibly the most beautiful place I have seen.......the steak we enjoyed for dinner was also out of this world! Our stay was marred slightly by the guards having to use their guns to deter some would be thieves at 1 pm, but this is out of the way Africa so par for the course.....
