Lake Kivu

Lake Kivu Serena


Lakeside enclave

The Lake Kivu Serena sits on a private stretch of beach by the sparkling waters of Africa’s sixth largest lake.

The resort has 66 modern rooms and suites nestled amid palm trees and manicured gardens where you’ll also find a swimming pool, lakefront Kiyaga Restaurant and evening sundowners on the beach at Ziwani Café.

Kick back and relax here or explore the waters by kayak or boat, head further afield by bike, on foot and visit nearby attractions such as steaming volcanic springs.
