beautiful lodge with the best people! This beautiful property is right at the base of the Virunga national park volcanoes. The main building of the lodge is open air, with fire places and braziers to warm you against any cool weather. The rooms are huge, clean, and a luxury in a remote location. The staff is the absolute best part. They’re joy for their home and sharing it with others is palpable in everything they do. We had simple delicious meals and warm water bottles waiting for us every night. What more could you ask for?!

Friendly staff and comfortable rooms What a warm welcome we received from everyone at Da Vinci Gorilla Lodge. Our family of 6 occupied 3 of the spacious rooms for two nights. We were the only guests and were pampered from start to finish. The food (delicious soups in particular) and service were excellent and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We recommend staying at this property for your time in Volcanoes National Park. Thank you for a great time!

Nice lodge with friendly staff This is a great place to spend a few nights for your gorilla trekking. The cabins are spacious and the fireplace and hot water bottles in the bed make it very cozy and warm at night. The open air lodge is a nice place to hang out after a day out in the jungle and the staff are attentive (possibly too attentive!) and friendly.

Excellent We loved the lodge but more than that we loved the people who worked there, perfect service and accommodation. We were glad to be able to be part of it. The food was great, they put fire in our fire pit at the room so it wouldn’t be cold. And again, everyone was so nice.

Perfect Place to Stay When Gorilla Trekking We stayed here while we were doing the Gorilla and Golden Monkey treks. We had a huge cottage with a stone floor, small fireplace, large comfortable bed. We visited in July, and the nights were about 58 degrees Fahrenheit. There’s no heat in the room, but the staff lights a fire in the fireplace and places hot water bottles between the sheets of the bed while you’re at dinner, so the room and bed are nice and toasty when you return. All meals were included with our room and the food was excellent. Particularly good was the Carrot Ginger soup. The staff was super friendly and accommodating, especially Tony and Alinne, who treated us like visiting family. Highly recommend staying here.

Amazing Place! Great hotel, perfect location near the gorilla park, huge rooms with kettle and fire place, hot water, WiFi, very good food by the chef Michel. But most important is the atmosphere and the service which are far more than perfect! Tony, Mussa and the wonderful crew who are doing everything that will make You happy. We highly recommend this hotel ❤️

Excellent lodge We stayed in the lodge for three nights. The staff was friendly, professional, and was ready to assist with any question or request we had. The location is perfect, the lodge is well maintained, but the staff is making it unique. Thank you Musa, Tony and the rest of the team!

Tour Best hotel in Rwanda. Toni and Musa are so great. Best hospitality, so comfortable-place. Great location near the Gorila, enjoying the Rwanda atmosphere. Great food by the chef, everything on time and tasty. It really felt like we are spoiled at home. Highly recommended

Good in a covid context We spent two nights at Da Vinci as their only guests. The hotel is nice but a dated and needs a spruce up and some garden maintenance. Rooms were big and comfortable, though surprisingly chilly at night. Food was decent and wholesome – no complaints. We had a few challenges (no cold drinks or ice; and no hot water in one room which couldn’t be sorted even when we complained). The staff though made up for a lot of it and could not have been more friendly and helpful. From doting on our every need to brining us containers of coals to warm us up to being ready after our gorilla trek to clean our shoes and give us a warm foot bath and foot massage. The staff team were certainly the highlight.

Beautiful room, but disappointed with treatment of dog This review is long over due, but i felt it important to write about. We made this trip back in February 2019. Our stay here was memorable and comfortable. We had an great experience (the food was amazing, the room was clean, the staff were attentive and welcoming especially Rose) the only reason why i give this resort a 3 instead of a 5 is because of the treatment of the dog on premises. She was a beautiful dog (see her in the pictures), that was teased horribly by the staff building the new building, and the one day she had paint on her face (we heard from Bob). Because of this it bothered me enough to write a review . Our hope is that our post will inspire the manager to ensure her safety and comfort (especially because she had puppies at the time), and that future guests will advocate for her health and comfort as it was a little piece of home coming home to a dog after our treck. We are dog lovers and this bothered us horribly.
