Five Volcanoes Boutique Hotel

Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda

Bronze price level

Set in Ruhengeri, Five Volcanoes Boutique Hotel is conveniently located near the entrance of Volcanoes National Park. The hotel is roughly a three hour drive from Kigali, an hour from the Uganda border and a 40 minute drive from the start of the gorilla tracking activities in Parc National des Volcans. The region is a series of beautiful emerald green peaks and lush undergrowth that visitors trek through to find the small family groups of mountain gorillas.

This boutique hotel consists of 11 spacious air-conditioned guest rooms and two larger cottages. Other amenities include a lush garden with hammocks ideal for relaxing after you trek. It also has a lovely pool surround by a wooden deck and a spa with a massage hut, a sauna and steam room for your relaxation needs. At Five Volcanoes enjoy the nutritious, well-presented cuisine from the main communal dining room which offers a stunning panoramic view of the Rwenzori Mountains. The friendly and attentive staff makes you feel at home.

The main attraction of Five Volcanoes is its proximity to the Virungas and the Parc National des Volcans where clients trek on foot to see the magnificent Mountain Gorilla - perhaps one of the most dramatic, thrilling and poignant wildlife experiences possible. There are, however, a myriad of other excursions on offer to our clients. These include treks to see the fascinating Golden Monkeys, which are found in the bamboo forests on the slopes of the Virunga Mountains. They provide an entertaining viewing as they leap from tree to tree and frolic in the open clearings of the forest.
