Lounge on one of the many beaches lining the edges of Lake Kivu. The lake spreads across a vast area of over 2,300 sq km (1,000 sq mi), making it Rwanda's largest. Rent a boat or a kayak to fully explore the surroundings, or opt for a relaxing swim in the clear waters. Those feeling adventurous can delve deep into the lake on a scuba diving excursion. Take a break at the nearby restaurant where you can try the sardines, a local specialty. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Lake Kivu by using our Kibuye trip builder site.

  • Unfortunately it was foggy the day we've visited so we couldn't see very well all around the Lake but the atmosphere and the landscape were beautiful.
