Mutanda Lake Resort

Cc - "Perched on a peninsula in the shadow of the Virunga Mountains, you find the most beautiful views on planet earth. It is a perfect base for gorilla trackers, lake loungers, volcano hikers and bird lovers."


Lake Mutanda is situated between Mgahinga NP and Bwindi Impenetrable NP. Mgahinga NP offers amazing views, spectacular hiking on the Virunga Volcanoes and Gorilla- and Golden Monkey tracking. Bwindi Impenetrable NP offers Gorilla tracking and nature walks. The Southern part of Bwindi hosts 10 habituated groups of gorillas and one group is used for Gorilla Habituation. We took over the property in 2013. To be honest we fell in love with the place the moment we set foot on the peninsula. In the past 7 years we worked hard to lift our standard by improving on service, food, accommodation and activities. We build two family cottages and five luxury cottages to make sure there is a variety of choice. Next to the amazing views, we offer very good food and clean comfortable rooms with big beds and hot showers. All cabins have a balcony with view. We offer transfers, packages to the gorillas or the volcanoes, peddleboards, canoeing, a motorboat with sereval excursions and lately we have a small sailingboat for people to explore the lake in a trditional way. And, the lake is very suitabel for swimming. Mutanda Lake Resort offers you a unforgettable experience at one of the most beautiful places in the world.

Conservation Story

Mutanda Lake Resort tries to create as much impact as possible in the community. 90% of our staff is from the community and we buy as much as we can from local farmers and traders. We offer community based activities to support the surrounding villages. By offering good standard service near the endangered Mountain Gorillas, we indirectly help protecting the conservation area they live in and the protection they get. We minimize on plastic usage by offering our clients filtered water and we only use the generator on peakhours, the rest of the day we use solar power.
