Description

Beautiful square overlooking lake Buhondo. The manager is very friendly, he assigned a room for the toilet and we were able to sleep in our van for 25000FRW. if we wanted the breakfast, the price is 30000 FRW. It's better to have a 4x4 to come here.

Fantastic road to drive, and great place to stay. We parked the car next to the restaurant overlooking the lake and got assigned a room for a nice hot shower (and they provided towels). We also connected to the electricity. Good restaurant, nice people. We did a boat tour across the lake and hiked to the point where you can see both twin lakes guided by the manager of the resort, which was lovely. We paid USD 10pp, kids got a little discount, incl a very nice big breakfast. You can WhatsApp them at +250 788 910 216.

It took us 2 hours to get here from the tarmac road. The road is beuatiful, but very bad quality, high clearence 4x4 definietly needed, with proper AT tyres. Wouldn't try it in rain as the road is very narrow and can become muddy.
Otherwise the place is great!

Still here. As they are renovating the upper part, you camp now down on the parking lot. There is no direct view, but next to a terrace with stunning views of the lake and the volcanoes. Nice fire in the evening. 15$ for two without breakfast, 25 $ including breakfast. You can relax here or take a boat trip with a combined hike to see both lakes (35$ per group, 3 hours), if you prefer some activity. They also have set up tents for 45$, including breakfast or rooms. In that case it is a good option to leave your car or motorcycle at the northern mainland and take the shuttle boat from the boating pier (see google maps) to the lodge. The direct road leading to the lodge from the southern mainroad takes approximately 1 hour. Quite rough, you need a 4x4 or at least high clearance. A lot of small wooden bridges on the route, not suitable for big rigs. But it is a beautiful drive.

See latest descriptions. RTT on the hill next to conference hall on flat grass area with nice views (I used power from outside socket). $25,-, 2 people, RTT included breakfast. Buffet style and really, really good. A lot of options, fresh fruits etc. So worth the money if you enjoy the included breakfast. Long beautifull road to the resort.

Same as above. Beautiful drive to the resort, took about an hour. If you stay in your car, you camp next to the hall and they provide a key of one of the chalets. Jean, the manager is really helpful and saw to every need. The chalets were fully booked one evening, but they provided us with buckets of warm water and we could wash in the hall. The staff English is not so good, but we understood each other. The view is really breathtaking and worth the visit. Wi-Fi is fast.

We paid $25 per night, breakfast included, for the two of us.

Lovely place just next to the lake with a sandy beach if you want to go swimming. Great place to stay a couple of days. Location is excellent when coming from/going to Kigali or crossing the border to/from Uganda.

Space for 2 normal size overland cars. Would be hard to fit a larger truck.

Restaurant and bar on site. Beers are 1000-1500 RWF and meals about 4-7.000.

Payed 25.000 RWF for camping for 2, including breakfast. This is pretty much the same price as for a night in their tents.

To get here, take the tarmac road to Kivuruga and then just follow the dirt road going north. The dirt road is in okay condition, but goes up and down which makes the 16 km run take about an hour. It can without a problem be driven with a normal two wheel drive, unless it’s raining (where I imagine it can be hard to pass even with a 4x4).
