Designed and built by the Akagera management company, Ruzizi tented lodge was opened in 2013 and has since then been offering good accommodation for tourists in Rwanda.
It is a 20-bed tented Eco-camp linked together using boardwalks, and is the first of its kind in Rwanda. It is located on the shores of Lake Ihema and has some very impressive African style decor.
It was creatively designed to blend in with the surrounding environment giving it a very natural habitat feel.
It is quite small, accommodating a maximum of 20 guests, but it so worth the trouble to book accommodation here. The peace and quiet creates the perfect atmosphere to commune with nature.
The lodge offers you the opportunity to explore less visited parts of Akagera national park in addition to the game drives and nature walks.
The lodge has nine tents, each fully furnished with a private bathroom as well.
Normal board basis is full board inclusive of breakfast lunch and dinner.
The lodge has constant power supply so you need not worry about sudden power cuts or shortages. Security is good, although there is some minimal possibility of encounters with wild animals.
It is recommended that you get your malaria shots before your safari.
