Volcanoes Safaris specializes in mountain gorilla and chimpanzee safaris in Uganda and Rwanda, offering a distinctive award-winning series of tours through the iconic African landscape. Our unique collection of lodges has been recently renovated to a new standard in luxury and their service and magical location are widely praised.
Volcanoes lodges respect the culture of local communities, the fragility of the environment and the need to use resources in a sustainable way.
Over the past fifteen years we have been at the forefront of mountain gorilla tourism and are the only safari company to have signed the UN Kinshasa Declaration on Great Apes.
'Everyone at the Lodge was so kind and helpful, we really felt very much welcome. Our room was beautiful: tasteful African look and feel but with all the comforts that a "spoiled" European would like to find. The view stunning.'
'Organic bush chic rather than transatlantic luxury, this is...the finest lodge anywhere in Rwanda.'
—Bradt Guide Rwanda
'The location on a peak between Lake Bulera and Lake Ruhondo, magnificent inland seas untouched by tourism, is spellbinding.’
—Peter Browne, Conde Nast Traveller
'Bwindi Lodge is an absolute paradise. I really appreciate the care for the environment. Superb service - the staff were amazing.’
—Tanya Sweeny, UAE
