This is a fairly big lodge, with well spaced individual large cottages surrounding a large grassy area where good local dancing takes place most evenings for an hour. The views of the nearby volcanoes are impressive. The cottage had a nice size sitting area with a roaring log fire made for you by the staff every night as it gets...

Beautiful setting, excellent cabins, service was terrific. Bar was open and accessible for our cocktail needs. Cabins are spacious and comfortable with fireplaces inside. Absolutely recommend. Restaurant tends to be buffet oriented, but adequate and diverse choices made it just fine

Cane for a 1 night stay at mountain gorilla view lodge to go for gorilla tracking. All staff members are extremely kind and available, the rooms are nice and cozy, and the fireplace makes a nice addition as the weather can be chilly. All in all: good food, nice people and service.

I will always remember our stay very fondly. As this was a quick "fun" trip within the context of a larger work trip in Addis, Ethiopia, our time was limited to only one night at the lodge. However, that one night was fantastic and I would have been perfectly content staying another couple of nights. The views are just amazing...

Unfortunately, we ended up at a different location, which is only accessible to the main lodge by car. We were told that due to the number of guests, we were being assigned this different area. That part of the 'resort' had no...
