Lake Kivu Serena Hotel

Lake Kivu Serena Hotel is a relatively new four-star property with modern facilities that still retains an intimate ambience. Attractions include a large swimming pool, sun lounging area and beautiful sandy beach on the shore of Lake Kivu. The hotel is used by a mixture of NGO workers, ardent naturalists, wealthy Rwandans and foreign tourists.

There are sixty-six rooms including twenty-three family rooms and six suites. All the rooms are clean and comfortable and are well furnished. Each room is equipped with air-conditioning, satellite TV, direct-dial telephone and en suite bathroom with both shower and tub.

There is a large dining room with additional outside seating where both buffet and a la carte meals are available. The food is good and samples both regional and international cuisine.

Only around 90 minutes’ drive from Volcanoes National Park, Lake Kivu Serena Hotel can be used as a good base for gorilla watching. It means an early start, but the reward is that you can watch gorillas in the morning and relax on the beach in the afternoon: a truly unique combination.

This is just a quick… note to tell you what a fabulous time we had in Rwanda with Janice Booth. We have been to some stunning places before (many of them through you), but Rwanda captivated us in so many different ways that it beats the lot! We expected, of course, to he wowed by the gorillas – but they managed to exceed our expectations. To be so close to such awesome creatures in the wild is not an experience we are likely to forget. What really took us by surprise was the warmth of the welcome that we received from the people…The country itself is beautiful…so much diversity…Janice was terrific and [the local guide] was delightful. We could not have asked for a better team.
