Hotel Review: Classic Lodge, Musanze

Classic Lodge is located in Musanze in the Northern part of Rwanda, with easy access to the gorilla trekking base at Volcanoes National Park.

It is only 50 minutes away from Rubavu and 2 hours drive from Kigali, making it an ideal choice of stay for those just arriving to explore the Virunga Volcano National Park and the Northern Province.

The surrounding mountains adds to the appeal of Classic Lodge, making you feel like you are at the foot of some of Rwanda’s most spectacular mountains. The gardens and grounds around the lodge are pristine and the design is fitting to the mountainous region.
