The Mikeno Lodge is a 90 minute drive from Goma and offers beautifully appointed bungalows and fine dining. The lodge, restaurant, and bar are located within a forest and offer beautiful views of the rift valley and Nyiragongo and Mikeno volcanoes. Nature walks and visits to local places of interest can be arranged. There is an abundance of bird life, as well as resident blue monkeys, colobus monkeys, and baboons. Chimpanzees are also frequent visitors to the area.
Mikeno Lodge is the perfect base to start your Virunga adventure from, with mountain gorillas, chimpanzees and volcanoes all within reach. Not only is it a beautiful lodge located in a pristine (and primate filled) forest, it also offers some great activities.
Five minutes walk from the lodge you will find the Senkwekwe centre, is the only facility in the world that cares for mountain gorilla orphans. The Senkwekwe centre and its care takers feature in depth in the much acclaimed 2014 Netflix documentary ‘VIRUNGA’.
The lodge is located on the grounds of the headquarters of Virunga National Park, and as such it offers a unique opportunity to get a brief insight into the workings of a National Park. You can get a tour of the grounds and meet some of the rangers and staff responsible for the management and protection of the park. In the evening some of the senior park staff might join you for a drink at the bar.
