Lake Kivu

Lake Kivu, one of Africa's Great Lakes, lies on the eastern border of Rwanda, separating it from the Democratic Republic of Congo. The lake lies in the Albertine Rift which is part of the Great Rift Valley, an area of tectonic divergence. Covering a total surface area of around 2 700km², Lake Kivu empties into the Ruzizi River, which in turns feeds into another of Africa's great lakes, Lake Tanganyika.

The largest city on the shores of Lake Kivu in Gisenyi. Known for its sandy tropical beaches and variety of watersports, this rustic town is an excellent tourist destination. Expect to find a range of beachfront accommodation, of varying architectural styles, as well as bustling marketplaces and quaint tree-lined streets, and also the only brewery in Rwanda. Gisenyi is ideally located as a stopover for travellers heading to or from the Volcanoes National Park.

Another great town to visit on Lake Kivu shores is Kibuye. Stretching over a series of eucalyptus and pine covered hillsides, Kibuye is fast becoming a popular destination, due to the newly constructed road from Kigali.
