Cormoran Lodge, Lake Kivu


This charming wooden lodge sits in a remote hillside spot on the shore of Lake Kivu.

Rustic and authentic, Cormoran Lodge is a lovely relaxing base to take in the stunning views of Lake Kivu. Its cabins on stilts are perched on a lush hillside near the ‘beach city’ of Kibuye, with the largest cabin housing a restaurant and bar that serves up some great local fish. Seven characterful cabin-style rooms are simple but perfectly comfortable and all have a television, Wi-Fi, mini fridge and a stone and slate bathroom with shower. There’s the choice of double or twin rooms or the VIP cabin, which has views of the Nyiragongo volcano in neighbouring Congo. Canoeing, boat rides and waterskiing can all be arranged on the lake at extra cost.
