    Great location but getting there even with a 4x4 was not easy. I will return to this hotel in the future but hope that the road will be fixed and improved.

    I had a great time at Rwiza Village! Definitely better than I had anticipated. Pros: Great location! Amazing views! And convenient. The staff are very accommodating and made it easy for us to rent a boat and kayak directly from the lodge. We were there for 2 days and didn't need to drive to another location, which made it the perfect location. The pros definitely outweigh the cons, but here they are anyway: We booked a room w/ 2 twin beds, there was quite a large hole between the bathroom door and the wall. The mosquito nets weren't quite center which meant we occasionally awoke with netting in our faces/mouths. Recommendations: 1. Make sure you have time for your meals, they prepare everything fresh so expect to wait while it's prepared. Better yet, order food on your way back from the lake, take a shower, and it's ready by the time your done. 2. If you choose to take a boat to Chapeau Napoleon (i recommend you do), wear proper shoes as it's an uphill hike with loose dirt and rocks. 3. Kayaking is a must! We kayaked out to a natural beach, docked the kayak and had a great time in the water. 4. There are a lot of mosquitos at night - Bring bug repellent or make sure you're covered. 5. If you plan on going in the water, bring an extra towel if you have one convenient enough to pack. The towels provided by Rwiza are on the smaller side.

    Im Prinzip eine schöne Anlage, aber die Ausstattung und der Service sind noch ausbaufähig.
