Five Volcanoes Hotel
is located in the Virunga Mountains area of western Rwanda.

Situated in the town of Ruhengeri, around 10km northwest of the park headquarters at Kinigi village, this modest and relatively well priced hotel has reasonable public areas around a decent swimming pool. Guest accommodation is in around 20 small but modern rooms.

The main activity is gorilla tracking, supported by golden monkey tracking, both close at hand. Village visits and other walking options are also possible.

Remarkably this tiny portion of the planet hosts almost a third of the world's wild mountain gorillas, with around 250 individuals in 10 troops, of which 8 are habituated to the presence of humans, which means that they can usually be approached without being scared off. This rich rainforest environment also contains over 120 mammal and 350 bird species.

Only 56 gorilla tracking permits are issued each day, so you need to book extremely early and pay up front to secure a spot to visit one of the more interesting and accessible gorilla families.
