It is ideally positioned for gorilla hikes, as well as acting as a vibrant hub for the area’s unique birdlife and resident monkey population, and is consistently singled out for its comfort and friendliness of its staff.
Mikeno Lodge, located 90 minutes from the eastern city of Goma, has breathtaking views of the rift valley, Nyiragongo, and Mikeno volcanoes. The Lodge has twelve bungalows, each distinct but with a similar attitude and aesthetic: they are located in the surrounding forest and built from a combination of local lava stone, mahogany, and thatch. Baboons, colobus monkeys, and chimpanzees are common visitors to the Mikeno region, which is home to a variety of the Congo’s 1,185 recognized bird species.
The design is lavish and modern, as in the main spaces, but with throws, furnishings, and textures that reflect the Lodge’s unique surroundings. All of the bungalows are private, with en-suite bathrooms, stone-carved baths, a fireplace (which is lit by candlelight when supper is served), double or twin beds, and decking with lovely views of the forest and hilly environment.
The LodgeThe lovely thatched-roof and wood-framed main area is perched atop a hill, with stunning views of the tree canopy. Meals and icy cocktails are served in the lovely open-sided dining and bar areas, where downtime is spent between activities. There’s a wood-burning fireplace to keep things warm when the temperature drops at night. Because the camp is surrounded by electric fencing, wildlife wandering in and out is unlikely; however, keep an ear out for woodland owls and other jungle sounds.
RoomsThe 18 two-person tents are not only adequate but also extremely comfortable, with queen-sized beds and starched white linens, as well as hot-water bottles neatly tucked between the sheets for chilly evenings. Toilets and hot showers are provided in the en-suite bathrooms. There are even two wall outlets for your camera or phone, overhead lights, and plenty of refilled bottled water.

In fact Congo’s road network is only marginally developed and only about two per cent of the roads are paved. This is mainly due to the fact that the heavy rains in the Congo Basin make the conditions for road or rail construction difficult. Waterways are therefore preferred throughout the country.
Since navigable rivers run through two-thirds of the country, this facilitates the connection between the cities. The electricity and water supply, like the road network, is worse. Only about ten per cent of the population has access to electricity and water. A telephone or mobile network is usually only available in larger cities and it does not always work reliably there either.
