Destination Kivu Belt

The Kivu Belt stretches from the vibrant beach town Rubavu (156km from Kigali) in the North, over the picturesque lakeside town Karongi (110km from Kigali), along the two majestic mountain rain forests Gishwati Nyungwe National Park, up to the former fishing village and border town Rusizi (240km from Kigali). The 3 towns are interconnected by a curvy tarmac road winding its way through the breathtaking landscape passing green banana fields, tea plantations, charming little rural villages and the endless wideness of Lake Kivu. Those who like it more adventurous can cover the distance on the Congo Nile Trail, an adventurous biking & hiking route.
