The Ruzizi Tented Lodge, a 14-bed tented eco-camp linked together using boardwalks, is the first of its kind in Rwanda. Ruzizi is built on the shores of Lake Ihema, Rwanda's second largest lake, tucked away in a tract of unique riverine forest.
The lodge was designed to blend in with the surrounding environment in order to create a feel of being connected to nature. Where possible, trees and vegetation were left undisturbed during the construction, and even incorporated into the structure. Much of the furniture and decorations have been hand-crafted by local artisans and cooperatives. The lodge is powered by solar energy and prides itself on being environmentally friendly.
