Overview

UPDATE, 15/12/2020: Just-released coronavirus measures by Rwanda’s Office of the Prime Minister prohibit any celebrations this month. Plan to be with us a year later β€” we are going to do the same program on 31/12/2021 instead.

A breathtakingly unique way to celebrate the arrival on 2022!

  • enter 2022 by motorboat, with candles and champagne
  • marvel at fantastic Twin Lakes views
  • enjoy an up close view of ancient fishing
  • dine at sunset at Byiza Lodge
