Tracking Rwanda’s Mountain Gorillas From le Bambou Gorilla Lodge
Accommodation just like the gorilla permit is an essential component of any overnight Rwanda gorilla safari. On the base of the Volcanoes National Park – the famous Rwanda gorilla habitat, there lies a good midrange / standard Lodge which presents an ideal ground for the mountain gorilla exploration.
Le Bambou Gorilla Lodge as the name suggests features the name gorilla which lures you into the gorilla rhythm from the moment you check in for the next day’s encounter. The lodge is close to Kinigi the main gathering point for all the travelers on gorilla safaris in Rwanda for gorilla family allocation and briefing which makes it easier for the guests to connect to this starting point.
Put together using the very materials that are in the gorilla habitat including the Bamboos, the Le Bambou Gorilla Lodge offers the gorilla trekkers an opportunity to sleep like gorillas themselves feeling the touch of nature thus increasing the anxiety for that awaiting life time moment in the gorilla sanctuary. The local workmanship gave it a local blend in terms of design and the lodge’s continued working relations with the local people has maintained the local people’s benefit from the establishment such as providing dance performances at the lodge.
Accommodation at Le Bambou Gorilla Lodge is presented in three (3) room categories namely the Single rooms, double rooms and twin rooms. These rooms feature Mini refrigerator, Private bath, fire place, running warm water, coffee maker, security safe, Bed, Wardrobe, Chairs and Hair dryer which are considered good for travelers on gorilla trekking safaris in Rwanda. Each cottage room present clear view of the Volcanoes from the balcony and assures the guests of the 24/7 electricity.
Gorilla tracking in Rwanda is considered apparently to be the best Africa safari activity and the count of ten (10) habituated gorilla families thrive in Volcanoes National Park – the Rwanda’s side of the eight Virunga Mountains where the 480 mountain gorillas are known to live. Mountain gorillas are known to be only 880 in numbers with the remaining thriving in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in the neighbouring Uganda.
