Situated just northeast of Lake Kivu, the town of Rubavu is set close to the border of the Democratic Republic of Congo. This town serves as an excellent base from which to explore the incredibly scenic surrounding landscapes and local attractions. Some highlights include: the Congo-Nile Trail, a diverse and beautiful nature trail which can be traversed on foot or by bike; the Pfunda Tea Estate, perfect for a spot of tea and a plantation tour; the beautiful Gishwati-Mukura National Park home to an array of fauna and flora including an array of primate species such as chimpanzees, the black and white colobus, mountain, blue and golden monkeys. Don’t miss the opportunity to kayak on the calm, crocodile and hippo-free waters of Lake Kivu.
