Amakoro Songa Lodge Kinigi Rwanda

Amakoro Songa Lodge is located in a small village outside the town of Kinigi, a genuine blend of conservation and tourism. The lodge gets its name from the black volcanic rocks that characterize this mountainous part of Rwanda that is home to the Mountain Gorillas. The lodge is set on a seven-acre plot with beautifully manicured lawns, surrounded by the Muhabura, Gahinga and Sabinyo mountain volcanoes.

Amakoro Songa Lodge is located in Kinigi in the north of Rwanda is easily accessible by road using both private vehicles and helicopters  from Kigali city center or Airport. From Kigali to Amakoro Songa Lodge is approximately 3 hours drive and 25 minutes fight on Helicopter

Amakoro Songa Lodge Kinigi Rwanda has 8 luxurious cottages are designed and built to take advantage of its serene surroundings which give every visitor a chance to escape everyday life and a sense of tranquility.

All the cottages are intentionally furnished with rustic elegance, fusing local and modern pieces that create a good warmth and comfort. The spacious rooms, each equipped with a fireplace, allow guests to opt for a post-trekking massage. The ‘must-experience’ outdoor fireplace is not to be missed and it allows guests to enjoy an evening drink while watching the traditional Intore Dance Troupe.

The Amakoro Songa Lodge provides luxury accommodation for ecotourists particularly those visiting the Volcanoes National Park in Northern Rwanda for Gorilla trekking, birding, and mountain climbing and it seeks to become the leading regional provider of luxury hospitality services and the eco-lodge of choice for environmentally conscious travelers while contributing to the social-economic transformation of the local and neighboring community. 

Amakoro Songa Lodge is big on “try local” when it comes to the cuisine. The chefs grow their spices and organic vegetables in the gardens and are able to cater to the tastes of the world. The carefully recruited staff includes some from the local community who will be at hand to provide you with authentic local hospitality and knowledge of the area.

Guests get to visit the villages that neighbour the lodge and take part in traditional activities like tree planting, community cleaning and traditional dancing. The Lodge organises community walks that include home visits and a story moment with the oldest resident who shares stories dating back to pre and post-colonial times. 

The primary activity at the Lodge is, without a doubt, Gorilla trekking. Amakoro Songa Lodge is the closest lodge to the Park Headquarters where the adventure begins making it very convenient for our guests, given the very early start required for trekking.

After your undoubtedly unforgettable experience meeting humans’ closest relatives, a reinvigorating foot massage awaits. Whether you are looking for adventure through mountain climbing, cycling and bird watching or looking for relaxation and rediscovering your inner self.
