Best place to stay for Volcanoes National Park! Amazing food, people, and experience! Look no further and have no doubt about staying at Da Vinci Lodge! We stayed here while we did gorilla trekking and golden monkey trekking and let me tell you – we LOVED our stay. We felt so welcome and loved by all of the staff every single encounter. It was our first time in Rwanda (and Africa) so I was a bit nervous, but I felt very relaxed once I arrived to Da Vinci. Some of the highlights include: the FOOD! (Gourmet, Delicious, and made from local Rwandan ingredients bought from the market), the STAFF! (Shout out to my friends – Charles, Vincent, Angelique — I didn’t catch the names of the others but they were all phenomenal), the LOCATION! The hotel is not a far drive to Volcanoes National Park and it was also close to the starting/ending points for our treks which made for a short drive back 🙂 When you arrive you are greeted with a warm towel and fresh made juice from local Rwandan fruits – simple delicious. They help take your bags to your cottage. Our cottage had a nice big bed, coffee table, chairs and lots of space to spread out. The bathroom is nice and large as well. Since it gets a little cold at night in the area, the lodge will light the fireplace at night to keep your room toasty and will put warm water bottles in your bed to keep the bed warm through the night. It’s delightful! There is wifi in the reception area and it was actually faster than the wifi we had in our Kigali hotel! Anyways, after you return from your activities, they will give you a lovely foot massage and will also clean your hiking boots! We enjoyed that very much – it’s also the cleanest we have seen our hiking boots in a while. The meals are all seasoned so well and there is good daily variety 🙂 We truly loved our stay and would highly recommend this lodge to anyone visiting the area! Seriously. THANK YOU to the entire staff and Da Vinci Lodge for making our stay so memorable. We felt sad to leave and will miss all of you. We hope to return one day!

Picturesque Lodge, Lovely Cottages, Helpful Staff I stayed two nights and three days at the Da Vinci Lodge in mid-July when I trekked in the Volcanoes NP. From the moment I arrived, it was clear this would be a delightful stay. I was greeted by welcoming staff members with refreshing juice, a practice that continued each time I returned from a trek. The cottage is decorated in tasteful traditional Rwandan style and very well appointed with comfort furnishings. There’s a fireplace for cold nights and they provide hot water bottles that stay warm through the night. Staff takes your order for each meal after the previous meal, and each is prepared hot and delicious at your chosen time. The dining hall upstairs has a great view of the Virunga Mountains on clear mornings. On top of all this, staff here makes the stay even more special, with their attention to detail. I specially want to give a shout out to Charles and Deborah (? Not sure I recall the name right after staying at a few places) who handled all my meal and room related needs. Just an amazing place to stay at if you’re visiting the mornings Rwanda.

Nice little hotel in a peaceful place but SOOO many payment issues! I booked this hotel through expedia and paid through expedia but when I got there they told me they are no longer on expedia and I paid AGAIN. Then they charged me $1000 instead of $100 and I STILL have not gotten a refund. the place itself is nice and the service is good (a little too good actually with people hovering around.) I really liked the woman at the front desk

Wonderful stay at Da Vinci Lodge My sister and I had a memorable stay at Da Vinci Lodge. We arrived early in the morning for a quick nap before our gorilla trek. After the gorilla trek, we were pleasantly surprised by a foot massage by Eli and Mogesha. Our room was heated by an in room fire place and our beds had heat packs which made us sleep well. The next day, we went to see golden monkeys and our room was decorated with flowers upon our return as we packed our bags. Our delicious meals had large portions. Thanks to Tony, Eli, Mogesha and the rest of the staff for a great experience at Da Vinci.

He is willing make your stay pleasant and comfortable. The food is amazing. Custom order your meals and time to dine. The options for food is fresh and feels like homemade. The rooms are clean, with bath robes and slippers and very hot water. The whole place is five star.

Wonderful welcoming lodge We just got back from spending two days at the Da Vinci Gorilla Lodge. The setting is lovely and quite close to the national park. The staff were amazing – so warm and welcoming and everything they could to make our stay comfortable and special. The manager Tony was exceptional. He was very knowledgeable about the area and made us feel like special guests. The rooms were quite large and comfortable. The food was delicious, and like another reviewer said, the soups were fantastic. The portions were plentiful and they had a good variety of choices for every meal. We would come back from our trekking to the gorillas and our tracking of the Golden monkeys to be welcomed with freshly squeezed fruit juices. They would take off our extremely muddy boots and clean them for us each day. The weather was chilly, and so it was so luxurious to come back to our rooms after dinner and find a lovely fire going and hot water bottles in the bed. We highly recommend this hotel. You will have a great experience!

Our favorite hotel in Rwanda We spent 4 nights in this hotel and felt so well welcomed. All the personnel were so kind and nice that we missed them a lot when leaving. Rooms are nice and clean, with fireplace and hot water bottle under the quilt. Very nice garden. Very good food. I highly recommend to come to Rwanda (even during covid-time, this country is quite safe and very well organized), and to spend some time in Da Vinci.

Exceptional Service This lodge is exceptional in every way. The manager Tony consistently went above and beyond to ensure not only our needs were met but to anticipate and exceed in ways we didn’t consider. Returning from gorilla trekking, they ensured our hiking shoes were promptly cleaned and ready for the next trek. Meals were delicious in a beautiful setting. I hated leaving and missed everyone there immediately. They truly feel as if you gained family members.

Felt like staying with family I feel like I’m repeating what other reviewers already said. However, what makes this place so special is the staff! Tony and Aline are true gems and I enjoyed getting to know them and learn their stories. The food was amazing, especially the soups. The location is perfect for Gorilla/Golden Monkey Trekking. When you come back from Trekking completely full of mud they help you remove your shoes and socks and whisk them away to wash them. You’re greeted every time you return with some delicious fruit juice. They keep you warm with little fires while you eat in the open air dining room and also make sure the fire in your room keeps you toasty at night. The hot water bottles are great too! If I find myself back in this area in the future I will definitely stay here again. Again, I can’t say enough about how great the staff is!
