    The easiest method is to charge your bar and dinner drinks to your room and settle at the end of your stay. You can also purchase items in the gift shop in the same manner. Credit cards are accepted.

    Hello, 2 of us are looking to book a Gorilla trekking experience and this accommodation has been highly rated based on its proximity to the Park. How did you get from Kigali to the Mountain View Lodge? I note there is an airport shuttle, but wonder if it is cost prohibitive. Are there buses? Or did you secure a tour package that include transport to and from Kigali? We would also like to know transit options to the Park gate from the Lodge please. Lastly, did you book your Gorilla permit on your own or did you use a tour agency? Any insight would be much appreciated. Thank you.

    There were no mosquito nets. We did not encounter any mosquitos during our stay either at the hotel or while trekking.
