The Kivu Queen uBuranga, Rwanda’s first luxury cruise ship is expected to get operational and serve clients by early December.

Fully built in Rwanda, uBuranga will operate on Lake Kivu, serving local and international clients. Cruise ships are designed to provide passengers with a holiday including accommodation and entertainment prioritizing onboard amenities and comfort.

uBuranga boasts 11 modern cabins, a swimming pool, a dining salon, a bar, and a viewing deck that allows tourists to explore some of Rwanda’s desirable sceneries.

The ship’s service itinerary will include sailing the beautiful Lake Kivu from north to south and vice versa, in addition to activities including water sports.

Its upper deck is designed so that it is possible to be booked separately from the rest of the boat with two VIP staterooms, a third cabin, a separate lounge, a small service kitchen, and a private expansive rear deck.

Pascale Keza, the cruise ship’s sales and marketing manager, told The New Times that they will announce details related to booking and prices on November 13.

Christmas offer

There is a possibility that the ship will be open for clients in December, he said.

“We are close to Christmas and we should have an offer coming up,” she noted.

The Kivu Queen is under the management of the boutique luxury hospitality brand of Mantis, an Accor Group company.

Accor is a French multinational hospitality company that owns, manages, and franchises hotels, resorts, and vacation properties. It is the largest hospitality company in Europe and the sixth-largest hospitality company worldwide.

In its current form, the Kivu Queen will be deployed to confirm the reality that a fleet of explorer-class luxury cruise ships can be viable on the fabled lakes of Africa and do so in no less style and sophistication than the best that the world of explorer cruising can offer.
