Ruzizi Tented Lodge


Luxury Tented Camp Overlooking Lake Ihema

The camp's nine tents are spaced widely apart on either side of a thatched reception and dining area, set back from the lake shore and hidden among swaying palms and fruiting fig trees. With a maximum of 20 guests, the lodge is an intimate retreat. Each tent has an en-suite bathroom with hot and cold running water, a dressing area and either comfortable queen or 3/4 twin beds, with a small patio at the front and accessible by wooden boardwalks. Another boardwalk leads to a large deck with a fireplace sits under a shady fig tree overlooking Lake Ihema.  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 conscious.


Accommodation is free for children 5 years of age and under. Children over 16 pay adult rates. All rates are on a half board basis and include accommodation, dinner and breakfast. Single occupancy in the luxury tree-top tent incurs a 40 percent single supplement charge.  Rates do not include park entry fees, activities, lunch, gratuities and drinks.
