Facing the tranquil waters of southern Lake Kivu, Emeraude Kivu Resort offers a spectacular option for those wishing to explore the lake and further afield to Nyungwe National Park. The lesser-visited southern waters of Lake Kivu are scattered with small forest islands against the stunning, green backdrop of Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Emeraude Kivu Resort is an excellent base for travelers as they visit Nyungwe National Park or track chimpanzees in Cyamudongo. The resort currently features 28 executive rooms, 4 suites and 1 family room.
Experience the solitude of the resort's outdoor area, listening to the songs of local fisherman as the sun sets colorfully behind the mountains. The onsite restaurant and bar serve a delicious menu of both Rwandan and international dishes sourced primarily from the local garden.
Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
