I used to live in Kigali and somehow never made it to Akagera National Park. I was back for a visit and booked my repeat business with Roger Niyonshuti (cell: 250. 783494739, a 32 year old man who is super energetic and determined to make sure you have the best time possible and a nice person on top of it...

Good value for money, rooms clean and spacious, would stay again. Not cheap, but a good option if you want a decent nights sleep without breaking the bank or leaving the park. Very hotel-like, but that's fine. Great of you want to explore Akagera for a few days :)

The hotel is located inside the Akagera national park, and has a great view of lake Ihema. The rooms are clean and generally holds a good standard. The beds are fantastic. The hotel area is packed with wild baboons, which was very cool, as long as you keep your distance. The food service is under average. The staff is slow...

The hotel is inside the Akagera National Park;hence quite an appropriate location.One of the huge trees in the hotel location is loaded with wild baboons, the other tree near the reception has a colony of weaver birds. The rooms are quite comfortable as is expected in wilderness f the national park.The pool is more of a water hole.The breakfast has...

The "average" note only concerns the quality of the room. Bathroom not clean and toilet doesn't work properly. But the staff is great, the service more than good, and the Buffet nice as well. I definitely recommend it for families and people who don't want to camp.

Stayed in Akagera Game Lodge for a few days while visiting the game park. Decidedly run down but still full of charm and perfectly comfortable. The pool is great - even saw baboons and warthogs while swimming. Food was good, even if evening buffet was hugely over-priced. All in all, a good place to stay with the family while visiting...

At best Akagera Game Lodge is a bad 3 star. Our welcome was luke warm, with the staff watching on as we struggled to get our bags from the car. The check in took long, and the room was very basic. The bed was ok, but the pillows so hard that my neck still hurts from alternating between using the...

A lovely place to stay in Akagera, clean and comfortable with nice views and a climbing frame and a pool (which is quite cold!) The baboons roam freely around but didn't cause any problems. They have a buffet breakfast for about 6,000rwf which is great. They also have a couple of clay tennis courts next to the car park.

Other than campsites the only accommodation available in the park close to the entrance and providing a good base. Gradually being improved it has a pool and tennis courts but is let down by the quality of the restaurant where wider competition could lead to improvements - a tasteless and tepid beef curry and rock hard burger bun two examples...
