Amakoro Songa Lodge is an incredible accommodation facility hidden in a small village just outside Kinigi, which makes it a seamless blend of tourism and conservation.

It comfortably sits on a 7-acre plot of land with incredibly manicured lawns that are surrounded by Virunga Mountains, especially Sabyinyo, Gahinga, and Muhabura.
