Tour Details

This is a two-day tour mixed with biking (A trail with mixed mountains, hills, and valleys), coffee, fishing and boating experience. The first day starts with a Congo Nile (CNT) Biking trail experience from Rubavu to Kinunu where you pass by coffee, tea, banana, natural beaches, and amazing views of beautiful landscape (hills, lake Kivu, valleys, etc) and make the first stop over at Umwakira Kivu Coffee, Rwinyoni Village, Kivumu sector, Rutsiro District for a traditionally prepared coffee experience and tasting break. After the coffee tasting break, you continue the biking experience up to Cyimbiri whereby a boat picks you to Kinunu. Arriving at Kinunu, meet the guesthouse management and make the check in. After checking have a small rest followed by a swimming time at Kinunu beach around 17:00 o’clock. From 18:00 to 21: 00 PM, experience Lake Kivu night fishing activities including joining a fishing crew night fishing on Lake Kivu, paddling with the crew to the fishing location, experiencing a genuine traditional African trade far off the beaten path, boating to and from the fishing crew, tasting the Isambaza (small fish). On the second day in the morning, have a two- hour boating experience back to Gisenyi enjoying the beauty of the Lake Kivu with its multitude and amazing islands. Also, enjoy a panorama view of the Congo Nile Trail landscapes on the other side far from the coasts.
