Sitting on its own peninsula along the shores of Lake Kivu, the charming Cormoran Lodge is nestled on a steep hill and offers incredible views of Lake Kivu. The lodge consists cabins are perched on stilts and the views of Lake Kivu are incredible, making Cormoran Lodge one of the most unique places to stay in Rwanda.
From the VIP cabin, which is more like a suite than a room, Nyiragongo Volcano’s lava crater can be seen glowing at night from across the Lake. Each cabin is its own separate building, offering complete peace and privacy. The rooms are simple, clean and stylish albeit a little rustic, but it’s the perfect location to really get a feel of lakeside life.
Cormoran Lodge has its own restaurant with panoramic views of the lake and nearby Kibuye town. The food is excellent and the restaurant, like all the cabins, is made entirely of wood and stone.
Guests can also explore the lake itself by taking the steep path down the hill to a private beach with sun loungers, and it’s easy to arrange a trip to Bat Island from Cormoran Lodge. For those looking for an authentic Lake Kivu experience, Cormoran Lodge is just that.
