Lake Kivu, Goma

#4 of 9 in Nature in Democratic Republic of the Congo
Trek or take a boat ride to see the volcanic scenery around Lake Kivu, a body of water between DR Congo and Rwanda. Enjoy views of the picturesque peninsula and take a safari tour to see lowland gorillas. The lake abounds with fish, so rent (or bring) some gear to catch your own, or simply enjoy a meal of freshwater fish in a local restaurant. You can also kayak along streams leading into the lake, surrounded by lush vegetation.
