One of the few accommodation options, and the most comfortable option in southern region around Kamambe, Emeraude Kivu Resort serves up panoramic vistas of the lesser visited southern waters of Lake Kivu, scattered with small forested islands against a backdrop of the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
The resort is in an excellent location for travellers wishing to visit Nyungwe National Park, track chimpanzees in Cyamudongo, or explore deeper into Rwanda.
Emeraude Kivu Resort has a small local pier and offers a range of boat trips out to the small inhabited islands of Lake Kivu. Meet the locals from Gihaya island and see their incredible weaving skills or go bird watching on IREBA island, a haven for birdlife.
From the resort local fishermen can be seen and heard, singing their local songs as they return from a days work, and from the rooms and the outdoor area of the restaurant, daily sunsets never fail to impress, with bright oranges, pinks and reds lighting up the horizon.
Emeraude Kivu Resort is a welcoming and friendly resort, and staff will go out of their way to ensure guests are happy. The onsite restaurant has a delicious and varied menu of Rwandan and International fusion dishes, and as most food is sourced from their own garden, the dishes taste fresh and flavourful.
With plans to expand the resort and add a spa and swimming pool, Emeraude Kivu Resort has a bright future and is the perfect place to explore a rural region of East Africa filled with nature.
