Akagera Game Lodge

The only lodge in Akagera has changed name and is under new management. It is no longer Akagera Safari Lodge but Akagera Game Lodge (44 rooms) Tel: 0785 201 206; Mobile: 0788 537 494; 0788 551 716; email: akagera01@yahoo.de (I thought that de was a typo for fr but when I tested it, it worked)

Dubai World did nothing with the lodge and it is now run by the Rwandan government. Otherwise your write up is still valid and baboons are still a big issue! Another 20 rooms are being refurbished. Breakfast and a la carte meals are excellent and service fairly rapid!

Rates: US$ 80/100 sgl/dbl; family room US$120; suite US$150; cottages US$300/400 (max 4/6 people);

    Akagera Game Lodge – just stayed two nights there: good wifi, hot showers, great view of the distant lake (allow 30 minutes to drive there from the lodge or reserve reception centre if you wish to do a boat trip) and swimming pool. Refurbishment ongoing. Despite the registration form clearly stating that the Lodge does not accept Visa, it does. Baboons were kept at bay by a guy with a stick. Negatives: food slightly more expensive than similar-range establishments; breakfast is (strangely) not a buffet and staff insist on bringing each part out separately which takes a long time (there is in general slow service in Rwanda) – so took nearly an hour to complete breakfast, which is not good if you want to get away quickly for game viewing. The Lodge does a packed lunch – order it the night before – however this is exorbitantly priced considering what it includes.
