Cormoran Lodge


Rating: Mid-range    

Cormoran Lodge overview

A gorgeous rustic log cabin style lodge in a shelterd bay on Lake Kivu, near Kibuye. Accessed by boat or from a dirt road off of the Kibuye main road, Cormoran Lodge sits in the curve of a sheltered bay, surrounded by hills and islands looking out over the beautiful lake.

There is a huge dining area and bar with a long terrace on the front looking over the lake and down below on the terraced gardens there is a small beach area and jetty where you can relax and swim.

At present there are 6 rooms in a variety of double, twin or a VIP cabin. All rooms are large and basically furnished but comfortable, with mosquito nets, fridges, safes, TV and bathrooms with both shower and bath tub.

There is a games room with billiards, darts and board games and water sports such as canoeing, boat rides and water skiing can be booked at extra charge.

If you are interested in the history and culture of Rwanda, Kibuye is an interesting town to have a wander round and there are a few genocide memorials in the area too. There are some cafes and bars in town and it's nice to meet the local people and enjoy the beauty of the lake.

If you want to visit the source of the nile which is located in the northern section of Nyungwe Forest, the turn off road is nearer Kibuye than Nyungwe, so this is a good place to overnight.
