A LITTLE MORE INFORMATION ABOUT BUKAVU

Bukavu could well lay claim to being the most scenic town in the whole of the D.R.C. Built over a number of hills jutting out into Lake Kivu, the town features lakeshores dotted with faded colonial mansions, whose colourful gardens spill over into the lake itself.

Small pirogues glide across the lake, with fishermen casting their nets in the setting sun, as children play alongside mothers washing clothes in the shallows. Step back from the shores of the lake and winding dirt roads - and occasional tarmac - are crowded with market stalls and dusty shops, with spectacular views of the lake from the hill above town.
