In the last 23 years, Rwanda has taken back the reigns to redefine itself as a preferred investment and tourism destination. It has become a buoyant, forward-looking country that boasts a growing tourism market.
With forests, gardens and permaculture embedded in our community, we will be able to position ourselves in the sectors of adventure, social, and agro-tourism.
Furthermore, by being located near the entrance of the Akagera National Park (a protected area in eastern Rwanda that runs along the international border with Tanzania), we are able to offer a diverse range of services suited for all.
Infused with history in an exceptional forest setting, Rutete Eco-Lodge is only a few minutes from the Akagera National Park - one of the most attractive places in Africa. As such, it is easily accessible to tourists and our excellent customer service is sure to appeal to any customer.

Ten beautiful lodges will be built, surrounded by various plants, flowers, trees and fruit trees. Our exterior area can accomodate various cultural activities, and our outdoor restaurant offers traditional (and fusion) Rwandan cuisine, as well as classic international cuisine based on organic products. We are also planning on building workshops that will display and sell local artisanal products, handicraft and farm produce.
Our refined restaurant serves products grown and processed on site. The vegetable garden and a small farm also provide typical picnic baskets for park visitors. Our excess production is supplied to local markets of the Rwinkwavu region and other hotels in Akagera that don’t have easy access to healthy nutrition.
