Lake Kivu Serena

The Kivu Serena, sits on the white sandy shores of the lake from which the hotel takes its name, surrounded by extensive tropical gardens, offering the perfect place to relax and unwind after the rigours of trekking.

Whilst a little larger than most of the other lodges you would have seen in Rwanda, its location (the only place with a private beach and direct access to the lake), the range services on offer and the facilities, still make it the best place to ease the aching limbs. Despite its size and hotel feel, the staff are eager to please and the upstairs terrace offers great views for a drink at sunset.
