Lake Kivu is beautiful scenery, its surface is covered by deep emerald green waters and surrounded by glorious mountains. You can take boat cruises on the lake from Kibuye to nearby islands such as Amahoro known as the one bar island simply because it only has one bar on it and Napoleon Island which has a fruit bats colony. You may also choose to relax on the public beach on the lakeshore or visit hotels that have private beaches and offer water sport options.
