Lake Kivu is a remarkably beautiful inland sea surrounded by green terraced hills along the DRC border.  Rwanda's western side boundary with the DRC (Democratic Republic of Congo) by Lake Kivu, one of a string of huge freshwater lakes which lie along Africa's Great Rift Valley. Lake Kivu is Rwanda’s largest lake, and the sixth largest lake in Africa.

Three towns on the shores are Gisenyi, Kibuye and Cyangugu and connected by road that transverses through flourishing plantain fields and beautiful patches of foggy rainforest that offers sweeping views over the blue water.

The lake offers visitors rewarding glimpses into ancient African lifestyles.   Fishermen  in trench canoes unchanged in design for centuries, while vibrantly dressed ladies smoke traditional wooden pipes and troubadours strum sweetly on stringed iningire (traditional ‘guitars’).

Fantastic birdlife: flotillas of pelicans sail ponderously across the open water, majestic crowned cranes preen their golden crests in the surrounding swamps, while jewel-like malachite kingfishers hawk silently above the shore.
