Further Information

The Rooms

7 well sited self contained tented rooms - These self contained tents are built on the shores of the lake. They are constructed with a permanent stone bathroom at the rear and raised-decking supporting the vast tent in front. Each tent has its own private front porch where guests may spend a quiet evening.

Food & Drink

The lodge is on two levels. The main lodge on the lower level is designed with tradition at its heart. A combination of local stone and hardwood structures creates a warm environment for the chilly evenings on the lake. The 'top deck' area commands sensational views of the Virunga Volcanoes and Lake Mutanda. Here you will find the restaurant and bar where you relax next to a warm fire.

The 'lower deck' is predominantly used during the day for early breakfasts and lunch buffets. There is a lounge and bookshop and a well established library provides plenty of reading material for lazy afternoons at the lodge.
