Rooms at Ruzizi Tented Camp

There are just seven tents here which is what helps make this camp such a peaceful place. Each tent has its own en-suite bathroom with hot and cold running water, a dressing area and either comfortable queen or 3/4 twin beds and a small, private patio at the front, which is accessible by wooden boardwalks leading to and from the main reception area.

Food and Facilities

Meals at Ruzizi Tented Camp are simple yet always delicious. Enjoy a flexible breakfast, whether you want to be up early to see the game or fancy a nice lie in breakfast will be waiting for you when you rise. Lunch is usually taken out in the park or on the lake depending on what you fancy. Enjoy some sundowners on the viewing deck before tucking in to a different three course dinner each day.

Activities at Ruzizi Tented Camp

Time is usually split between game driving in the Akagera and spending time on the lake fishing or game and bird watching along the shores. There are several guides who will be more than happy to come with you into Akagera if you are self driving but there is also a seven seater game viewing vehicle that will take you out to see the sights.
