The remaining project of Istithmar, Dubai World’s investment arm in Rwanda, is now nearing completion, and the new lodge at the Nyungwe National Park is due to open in mid-March, this correspondent was told by sources in Kigali.

Dubai World, when arriving in Rwanda some years ago, announced grandiose plans to rebuild the lodge at the Akagera National Park, and assist RDB–Tourism & Conservation to fence the reserve, build a 5-star hotel in Kigali with an adjoining golf course, besides other projects, but only managed to take over the Gorilla Nest in Ruhengeri and commence construction of the Nyungwe lodge, before the global financial crisis struck and forced Dubai World to withdraw from their other ambitious plans.

The opening of the resort should be in a few weeks.
