Views of Lake Kivu and Democratic Republic of Congo

A great location for accessing Cyamudongo Forest and Nyungwe National Park

Emeraude Kivu Resort is in the town of Kamembe/Cyangugu in western Rwanda. Situated on the top of a hill, this small resort offers panoramic views over Lake Kivu’s southern shores.

The eight rooms are simply designed but comfortable and have en-suite bathrooms and a private balcony with views over the lake. The main building features a restaurant and bar that serves excellent food.

It is a good choice of accommodation for those who wish to visit Cyamudongo Forest, where the Chimpanzee tracking excursions are organised, as well as Nyungwe National Park for the Canopy Walkway and forest walks. Guests can also enjoy boat trips to various islands and sites on the water and bird watching on IREBA Island and in the Pharmakina woodlands.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… so we connect with local communities, and strive for sustainable travel to make your holiday special
