4 Days Gishwati Forest, lake Kivu, Gisenyi hot spring water and Rutsiro tea

Lake Kivu
-Part of Africa’s Great Rift Valley, Lake Kivu in the west of Rwanda is surrounded by magnificent mountains and has deep emerald green waters covering a surface area of 2,700 km2. It is Rwanda’s largest lake and the sixth largest in Africa.
From Rubavu in the north, the Congo Nile Trail extends 227 kilometres of breathtaking landscapes all the way to Rusizi in the south of Lake Kivu. The trail gently curves back and forth as it weaves through hills and mountains beside the lake.

For adventurous travellers, an exciting way to explore Rwanda is a kayaking tour on Lake Kivu, or mountain biking or hiking one of the 6 off-the-beaten path stages of the spectacular Congo Nile Trail.

Gishwati Forest

The national park is a home to a variety of wild animals, which include primates, East African chimpanzees, golden monkeys, black and white colubuses, southern tree hyrax serval cats, black front duiker and mammals plus birds all available for the visitors.
