Volcanoes Safaris’ eco-luxe lodges blend seamlessly into the tree-covered hills of Rwanda and Uganda. Constructed using traditional techniques and managed by locals, each lodge (Bwindi, Kyambura Gorge, and Mount Gahinga lodges are in Uganda; Virunga Lodge is in Rwanda) takes care to preserve the fragility of the environment and work with neighboring communities to deliver on the company’s claims of authenticity. Whichever African adventure you choose—tracking the mountain gorillas of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest or sharing in the heritage of the indigenous Batwa tribe, for example—you can experience the great ape parks at their best. What’s more, in 2017, to commemorate the death of conservationist Dian Fossey, Virunga Lodge has commissioned the Dian Fossey Map Room, where guests can celebrate her legacy.
