Lake Kivu stretches form north to south along the western border of Rwanda looking out to the Democratic Republic of Congo. This beautiful fresh water lake is ideal for swimming and boat tours. There are three primary locations along the lake Gisenyi, Kibuye and Cyangugu. Lake Kivu is an ideal spot for a quiet respite or a day adventure to any of the many islands that dot the lake. From Kibuye you can visit “Peace Island”, just don’t forget to have your guide call for the bats. It is a spectacular site to see the skies fill with them during the day. Or find one to have picnic.
