The lodge is said to be located on the shores of Lake Ihema (which is Rwanda’s second largest lake). The main deck in the communal areas supposedly has lovely views of the lake which you can sit and enjoy. They have even put a fireplace out there to keep you warm on cool evenings.

Ruzizi Tented Lodge Akagera National Park Rwanda is an eco-friendly lodge that provides world-class comfort on the African Savannah of Akagera National Park in Rwanda that one would not expect while going camping, however you are doing so in style and with a touch of class along a scenic lake with hippos all around to view while having a meal.  Simply a far cry from camping in the wild as you might imagine it.

From breakfast to dinner – the meals are something to be truly enjoyed at Ruzizi Tented Lodge and often a Barbecue will be prepared for dinner and you can sit around an open fire pit on a deck that overlooks Lake Ihema.

Lighting is provided by a solar system so do you not have the noise and smell of a generator at night but has lighting 24 hours per day while at Ruzizi Tented Lodge.

Ruzizi Tented Lodge – Akagera National Park – Rwanda is a far cry from what has been available up until now in Akagera National Park bringing a whole new touch of class to the park.

The lodge is family and kid friendly providing the setting that will leave lasting memories with the children and adults alike.
