Lake Kivu is just outside the small town of Gisenyi, which is 160km from Kigali (20 minute’s flight from Kigali International Airport) and minutes from the border with the Democratic Republic of Congo and the city of Goma. It can be accessed by both road and air. Best beach relaxing destination in Rwanda full of breath taking freshwater lakes which lie along Africa’s Great Rift Valley and the sixth largest lake in Africa. Feel lost in nature when by sitting on the sand near lake, view the beautiful scenery, which seems endless and on one side view a number of mountains covered with mist even on a sunny day. Have a wonderful experience of a boat cruise on Lake Kivu, explore the islands and visited Kinunu Coffee factory,the fishing village and others which is an amazing experience!

It is a great place for leisure, honey moon safaris, Beach safaris and nice to relax after a hectic day tracking gorillas in Volcanoes National Park. I highly recommend the Serena Lake Kivu Hotel. Best time to visit: The place is best for winter/rainy& summer season and nice year round from January to December.
