Le Bambou Gorilla Lodge


Le Bambou gorilla lodge is a midrange safari accommodation situated close to the entrance of Volcanoes National park where the park’s Kinigi head offices entrance is. Le Bambou Gorilla Lodge serves as a fantastic base for travelers wanting to enjoy gorilla trekking in the park, community visits to villages nearby, and hiking trips throughout the surrounding landscape.

The lodge is unique in the way that it was constructed using local building material like bamboo and stone and Le Bambou provides budget travelers with great accommodation close to where your Gorilla and Golden Monkey trekking starts. The lodge has 23 self contained cottages in double/twin, single and family occupancy in a beautiful garden setting and with lovely views of Volcanoes National Park. The rooms are huge, each with its own fireplace and the food served are basic but homely and big portions.
