Reviews about Journeys Discovering Africa

Five Volcanoes Hotel


Safari Highlights

One of several lodges nestled at the foot of the volcanic Virungas range of mountains, Five Volcanoes Hotel is a well located and moderately-priced alternative for travellers visiting the mountain gorillas.

Five Volcanoes Hotel

Unpretentious Charm

The hotel is small, with just eleven bedrooms, a family suite and a VIP cottage. For those brave enough to enter the chilly water, there is a pool as well. Rooms are comfortable, and meals are simple, hearty fare. The service here is excellent, with attentive staff waiting to cater for your every need. Located just 20 minutes from the park gate, this hotel is well worth a look when exploring the area.

A Plethora Of Activities

The geaography in the general area is stunning, and apart from tracking one of the mountain gorilla families in the nearby Volcanoes Park, guests can enjoy tracking golden monkeys, hiking up one of the volcanoes in the park, mountain biking in the surrounding area or taking a canoe trip across one of the nearby lakes.
