Africa’s Great Lakes
Lake Kivu Serena Hotel celebrates the shores of this African Great Lake as a destination of astonishing beauty, where pristine beaches and the sparkling waters of Africa’s sixth largest lake come together in breathtaking fashion. Your arrival is greeted by a bright, open-plan lobby giving way to a private stretch of beach reserved exclusively for hotel guests.
Lake Kivu is the perfect place to unwind after a gorilla-trekking safari at Volcanoes National Park, and it is roughly an hours’ drive between these two destinations. The breath-taking scenery from the hotel’s private shore encompasses endless waters and emerald-green mountains in the distance which are often blanketed with mist, even on a sunny day. The inviting lake shore is located just few steps beyond the hotel’s large swimming pool.
Lake Kivu is a mecca for water-sport enthusiasts and sun-worshippers and despite Rwanda’s landlocked reputation, the lake offers a superb beachside holiday. Overlooking a private sandy beach, just 20 minutes flight from Kigali. Situated in the Albertine Rift, along the Congolese border, surrounded by mountains and lined by some of the best inland beaches in Africa, Lake Kivu is one of Africa’s most beautiful lakes.
