We've found [N] hotels in Rwanda for you

Lake Kivu Serena Hotel

Location: Lake Kivu | Rwanda

Lake Kivu Serena Hotel in Rwanda is rather larger than many lodges that we recommend in Africa, but has a real appeal to it. After a day or so of roughing it during your gorilla trek, it’s rather pleasant to step back into the world of 21stcentury mod cons, and with a lovely location right down on the lake beach, it's ideal for a post-gorilla trek snooze.

Virunga Lodge

Location: Volcanoes National Park | Rwanda

Most guests come to Rwanda to see the gorillas, but in the “Land of a Thousand Hills”, there are some pretty spectacular views too. Virunga Lodge offers both: the chance to trek gorillas and breathtaking panoramas without leaving the lodge.

Nyungwe Forest Lodge

Location: Nyungwe Forest | Rwanda
