Ruzizi tented lodge was recently renovated and opened to the outside world in November 2012 thus becoming the new Ruzizi Tented Lodge and is tucked away in the Riverine forest on the edge of Akagera’s largest lake. This small private camp is totally luxurious and offers seven en-suite tents dotted along the forested lake edge, sheltered by large trees and swaying palms. The tents are spaced side of a thatched reception area with a lounge, bar and dining room. Each tent is accessible by a wooden boardwalk from the reception. The camp is entirely powered by solar, with a solar hot water system.
This tented lodge is entirely powered by a solar system. The lights, fridges and kitchen equipment, water provision and heating, and any personal electrical items you plug in are powered by solar. The system was custom designed to provide enough power for 3 days of autonomy at full occupancy.
