Project Description

In Lake Kivu, just outside Cyangugu, a Natural- and Maritime  Experience Park & Residential Family Village is proposed on two islands.

The project includes several pools and harbours where watersport activities can be practiced and visitors are welcomed to experience the natural beauty of the island through the various walking trails available.

By wish of the authorities a golf course is included, inspired by the meandering natural landscape of the island offering visitors a relaxing and fun natural experience.

Plan is to make the project part of a 5-location Tourism Infrastructure, as described in the GreenDreamCompany master plan for Rwanda.

The feasibility study proved that the project fits well under theUbuntopia® and Solomon’s Hidden Treasures® brands.
