Lake Kivu – Kibuye in Rwanda

Kibuye is an idyllic lakeside town on the shores of Lake Kivu, one of the world’s largest inland bodies of water, home to a wide variety of birds and plants. Connected by similar towns along a wide rollercoaster road that tumbles through lush plantain fields and relic patches of misty rainforest to offer sweeping views over the shimmering lake or via boat you can peacefully observe pelicans, crowned cranes and Malachite kingfishers. The myriad of floating volcanic islands give this off-the-beaten-path retreat a Pirates of the Caribbean romanticism where sleepy fishing boats and clear starry nights combine.
