Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
The cottage is recently renovated and provides 2 lovely bedrooms and a modern bathroom with bathtub and shower cabin. A glass front sliding door gives direct access from the sitting room to a spacy veranda with a beautiful view over the lake, islands and peninsula. The kitchen building next door faces the lake and is fully equipped. Breakfast, lunch or dinner can be taken on another veranda next to the kitchen. It has the most stunning view over the lake and some of its beautiful islands.

The space
The cottage sits on the ridge of a peninsula about 30 meter above lake level. It is surrounded by a trees bushes and flowers. Lake Kivu can be seen towards North, West and East. The northern view is especially beautiful. On a clear day you see the Nyiragongo Vulcano on the horizon. At night it glows with a red light.
To reach the cottage a 4 wheel drive vehicle might be of advantage on a very wet day but so far even other cars have managed to make it.

Where you’ll be

Kibuye, Western Province, Rwanda

The place is very calm. On a windy day you might hear the waves of the lake splashing against the shore. The songs of birds will accompany you most of the day. Fisherman go out towards the evening and come back early morning. They sing their own unique songs in the rythm of the paddle action. It is an authentic and beautiful display as can only be witnessed at lake Kivu. There is no better place than Explorers Paradise to make that experience.
