Bukima Tented Camp | Virunga National Park

Just outside the Virunga National Park boundary lays the Bukima Tented Camp, which is one of the main starting points to the Virunga mountain gorilla treks. The camp was originally built for researchers, but is now used primarily by trekkers. As the name suggests, overnight guests at Bukima sleep in platform tents, but by camping standards they are quite plush. Each tent is equipped with a nicely appointed bed and dresser for clothes. The views from the tent sites – or anywhere in camp for that matter – are spectacular. To the south, the view is dominated by Mount Mikeno, whose 4,437m summit towers over the gorilla sector. Across the valley is Nyiragongo volcano, whose lava lake colours the night sky with a red glow. Every few years, Nymulagira volcano erupts and steals the nighttime show by spewing hot lava hundreds of feet into the air.

Occasionally, the mountain gorillas themselves wander into Bukima Tented Camp. Although this is highly frowned up by park staff, it never ceases to impress the guests.

The gorilla treks start directly from camp, so no further transfers are needed, making Bukima the perfect spot to be the first in the forest in the morning.

Mikeno Lodge | Virunga National Park

Mikeno Lodge is the perfect base to start your Virunga adventure from, with mountain gorillas, chimpanzees and volcanoes all within reach. Not only is it a beautiful lodge located in a pristine (and primate filled) forest, it also offers some great activities.

Five minutes walk from the lodge you will find the Senkwekwe centre, is the only facility in the world that cares for mountain gorilla orphans. The Senkwekwe centre and its care takers feature in depth in the much acclaimed 2014 Netflix documentary 'VIRUNGA'.

The lodge is located on the grounds of the headquarters of Virunga National Park, and as such it offers a unique opportunity to get a brief insight into the workings of a National Park. You can get a tour of the grounds and meet some of the rangers and staff responsible for the management and protection of the park. In the evening some of the senior park staff might join you for a drink at the bar.

The forest around the lodge offers spectacular birding with over 100 species to be found, a prized sighting being the great blue turaco. Primates are abundant, with blue monkeys, l'hoest's monkeys, black-and-white colobus monkeys and olive baboons running amock. The lucky visitor might even spot wild chimpanzees around the lodge.

Nyiragongo Summit Shelters | Virunga National Park

There are twelve simple, rustic shelters at the summit of the Nyiragongo. Each of the shelters contain two single mattresses on which visitors can put their sleeping bags on. Although these shelters aren’t plush, they offer a welcome escape from the elements. The cost of staying in a summit shelter is included in the permit fee.

Make sure you bring warm clothes as it gets very chilly at night! Temperatures at the summit are routinely below freezing. Although most people arrive at the summit sweating from the steep climb, this sense of warmth quickly gives way to cold. A complete change of base layers is a must. Failure to bring proper gear will lead to hypothermia. Please do not endanger yourself and others by coming unprepared for these conditions.

From the summit shelters the rim is only a few meters away. The Nyiragongo summit has spectacular views. From the rim, you can peer down into a churning lava lake as well as see and hear hot gases exploding up though a mosaic of molten lava.

Namiri Plains Camp | Central Serengeti

For 20 years, the grasslands of the Eastern Serengeti were closed to tourists to allow the cheetah population to replenish itself. Today, this is big-cat territory, where cheetah roam the area in pursuit of prey, and lion and leopard hunt undisturbed.

In 2014, the region reopened with Asilia appointed as its custodian. Guests can enjoy this incredible corner of the Serengeti from the comfort of cool and elegant Namiri Plains. Expansive views, serious comfort, exceptional privacy and unrivalled sightings of apex predators in a region of the Serengeti come together to give you an exclusive and action-packed safari experience.

Beho Beho Camp | Selous Game Reserve

Beho Beho was the first camp to be sited in The Selous, not on the banks, or the flood plains of the mighty Rufiji River, but in the cooler highlands so as to enjoy the 'cooling breezes' from which its name derives. Always designated as a 'private camp' it has fiercely protected its individuality and privileged location as one of the most 'magical' places it is possible to visit in safari Africa.
