Luxury stay at Mountain Gorilla View Lodge

Mountain Gorilla View Lodge was fantastic. Reading previous reviews on other websites Gorilla View was rated as "simple," however, I would say that this was a luxury lodge and WONDERFUL! If anyone is in the area they should absolutely stay here. You get a luxury stay for half the price of other places! The lodge was also only 10 minutes from the starting point for both the golden monkey and the mountain gorilla meeting area.

Every night employees would walk you back to your lodge to ensure you arrived safely. They would also set a fire for you every night, and on top of that, each night a hot water bottle was in the bed to keep you warm! The lodge was set back into the trees and had a very secluded, authentic feel. The communal area with wifi and a fire was great for meeting other travelers and was very cozy.

Great stay at a great place!

Mountain Gorilla Lodge

The staff was great and food was very good. The rooms were nice and plenty big. The only downside was the shower did not work well in our unit.

The nightly entertainment was very enjoyable

Mountain Gorilla View Lodge

This is the second time I have stayed at the Lodge. IT provides good accommodation and service.

It has been expanded and now only provides buffet style meals. The choice and quality are pretty good.

The proximity to trekking points for gorilla viewing is very good.

Mountain Gorilla View Lodge review

The setting of Mountain Gorilla View Lodge was perfect, and the staff and rooms were excellent.

The foot massage and boot cleaning after the gorilla trek were particularly nice touches.

Mountain Gorilla View Lodge

We really enjoyed the Mountain Gorilla Lodge. The rooms were spacious, food terrific by Alfred the Head Chef and his team, it was very close to the the locations from which you walk to see the Gorillas and it was nice to have an open fire in the room in the evening.

The day we left it was raining very heavily (lucky we'd been trekking the 2 days prior) and there was some leakage into our bathroom.

Great basis for the trekking

It was good to go back to the hotel full of dust and have the shoes taken care of.

Gorillas!

The numerous staff were always very polite and attentive.

It gets cool at night: 50 degrees F. Get extra wood for your fire. The hot water bottle helps!

Take off a couple of layers before you set out on your trek: it gets warm soon.
