Most people know about the Rwandan Mountain Gorilla tours when Akagera reserve is lately left aside of foreign tourist interest. A piece of nature saved, restored and very well serving the tourists desire to feel the wildlife of Africa. Situated alongside the border of Rwanda with Tanzania and presenting to its visitor savannah, swampy land with lakes and small islands,... More

We stayed 2 adults and one child, 2 nights at the Game Lodge. It was a good place to start exploring the park. This was also one of the only places in Rwanda, where they didn't ask for prepayment to confirm the booking - which made everything much more easy! The rooms were very good - and clean. It fully...

I have visited the Akagera Lodge at least 3 different times and each time I am blown away at the beautiful views and the scenery. The location is absolutely stunning and the hotel is quite nice. HOWEVER, each time I've visited I am more and more disappointed in the condition of the facilities. We had several in our group and... More

Really enjoyed my stay here. Fantastic pool area, very relaxing with great views. Good food and good service from staff. Room was also nicely furnished and maintained. Beware of the baboons however - they managed to get into my second floor room via the balcony and they stole my banana cake!

The accommodation is magnificen, the room was comfortable, and the meals n the restaurant were sumptuous. In the morning, however, there was no hot water.Be sure to take a wildlife tour through the national park while you are there.

Let me preface by saying, that I am on a budget, as I am volunteering in Rwanda for the next 10 months. We called ahead to check the price, we were quoted for two adults the price of $100 US. We get there, and they want to charge us $120 US, not a huge difference, but I didn't appreciate that... More

New management since 2013 has renovated most of the lodge, and it is now a very comfortable place to stay. It is situated on the top of hill, with a wonderful view east of the park and Lake Ihema (the second-largest lake in Rwanda). The rooms have huge comfortable beds, and we slept very well. There is a lovely circular... More

The lodge is more than I expected after having read some of the reviews. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The pool and area to relax around it was wonderful after a hot dusty day in the park. The staff had a campfire at dusk that added to the allure of being inside the park. There was a nearby... More

Wifi was Miss and Hit (None for the first night and then it started working the following day)! Food was decent (menu is limited and adequate in the evening, breakfast was excellent, particularly the guy on the omelettes). Rooms were spacious, clean and everything worked (the shower head did fall off though). Swimming pool was lovely, but watch out for... More

I enjoyed staying at the Lodge. It is a bit spartan by most hotel standards but certainly has all the necessities. The rustic atmosphere contributes a bit to the sense of safari and adventure. Rooms were well appointed and had flat screen TVs. I even found a couple of movie channels in english! The dining hall serves a limited menu... More
