Opened in August 2011, Mikeno was the first lodge to be established in Virunga National Park. Centered between two tourist attractions, Gorillas and Mount Nyiragongo, Mikeno treats guests with beautiful views of the mountains and surrounding scenery. It hides in the trees of a virgin forest, therefore it is no surprise that the weather around is cool and filled with fresh air.
Mikeno Lodge has 12 individual bungalows, each accommodating two people. It is offered with either a double or twin bed. All the bungalows look alike and designed with lava rock walls and thatched roofs. Each structure has its own private deck, spacious bathroom and a lounge area with a fireplace.
