About us

Emeraude Kivu Resort offers luxurious, comfortable and affordable accommodation. The resort is close to Nyungwe National Park, the Green Hills Tea Estate and its factory Shagasha, Cyamudongo Chimp’s Forest, Mashyuza Hotsprings, the Bugarama Valley amongst other attractions.  When at the resort you will have the view of Nkombo and Gihaya Islands – home  to most fishers on Lake Kivu.

On entering Emeraude Kivu Resort, you will immediately sense its unique atmosphere from the decor - a mixture of African Tradition and a contemporary touch. All rooms and facilities overlook Lake Kivu and have access to the lush and well maintained garden. Complimentary to your stay, you can enjoy free access to the  fully equipped gym.

The unique charm and cosy mood of Emeraude Kivu Resort make it a perfect venue for a comfortable stay, business meetings and training workshops.

By Bus (upto 8 Hours): This is the cheapest yet most extended way to get to Emeraude Kivu Resort. You can board a bus at Nyabugogo in Kigali and drop off at the Rusizi bus station. You can take a motorbike “moto” from the bus station to the resort or hire a car locally, or we can facilitate your transfer from the bust station.

How to get here
By Car Up to 5 hours

Using a car is more convenient, comfortable and hustle free. The road is considerably smooth though it has some very sharp turns and curves so your driver should be careful. Using a car is shorter than using the bus, and if you have extra time on your schedule, you can make stops along the way to enjoy various fascinating sites.

This is obviously the most expensive but faster way to get to the resort.
There are domestic flights offered by RwandAir from Kigali. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, there are about 2 Flights a week but in normal times, there is a daily flight. We offer free airport transfers to and from the resort.
