Book this thrilling 3 Days Lake Kivu Experience to Lake Kivu in Gisenyi. This 3 Days Lake Kivu Safari shows you the best side of Rwandan leisure.
Day One: Kigali to Lake Kivu
Enjoy your gentle drive as you transfer from Kigali to Lake Kivu. Lake Kivu sits at the southern end of the Albertine Rift Valley, along the borders of Congo and Rwanda. It is a very scenic lake with deep blue waters, surrounded by public and private beaches.
It is bounded by a chain of rolling hills of Rwanda and Congo. In its midst, you will find many small fishing boats navigating past small islands.
The Lake’s deep waters contain an enormous quantity of dissolved gas. There are, in fact, 65 billion cubic meters of methane, in other words, the equivalent of 50 million tonnes of petrol lying at the bottom of the lake under 250m of water.
If it were exploited, this energy, veritable manna from heaven, would provide Rwanda with an almost inexhaustible source of energy, freeing it from worry about energy needs linked to its development projects.
There is a pilot station for the extraction of methane for energy in this place. Overnight at the chosen accommodation establishment.
Day Two: Relaxation at Lake Kivu
Sit still at leisure enjoying the sandy beaches of Lake Kivu. Alternatively, take a swim in the lake as it is free of Bilharzia. Besides, it neither has hippos nor crocodiles. Also, you can take a relaxing boat ride to soak in the beauty of the surrounding atmosphere.
Along the way, you will come across islands with colonies of bats. Lastly, you could go for a kayaking trip or lounge at the beaches with powder-soft sand.
A visit here is incomplete without sampling fresh tilapia fish, a delicious freshwater fish that knows treats the tongue right! Dinner and overnight at your hotel.
Day Three: Lake Kivu to Kigali
Transfer to Kigali with en route stopovers to admire the scenery. Rwanda is a country with over a thousand hills! Drop off at your hotel/airport for your onward journey.
