Electricity Connection

In collaboration with the Sunzu village members, the Volcanoes Safaris Partnership Trust and Volcanoes Safaris have helped facilitate the funding and erection of a 2.7 km power line through Kinoni village and Virunga Lodge, bringing electricity to 63 local families for the very first time.

Since 1959 the Ntaruka Hydro Power Station has been providing electricity to the communities surrounding the twin lakes, Bulera and Ruhonda, which can be seen from Virunga Lodge. Today, with the generous contributions from Volcanoes Safaris and the VSPT, the dream of having electricity in the Nkenke village has become a reality, with more than 300 houses and small businesses connected.
