Top Descriptions

Like , Kibuye is another great place to explore and enjoy . Here, however, the setting is somewhat more dramatic. Some beautiful yet simple accommodations such as are nicely perched to make the most of the views, and on a clear day the weaving and winding of the lake and the hills really is quite enchanting. It can either be enjoyed by or by many walking trails such as , , and . As long as you don’t expect much of the restaurants here, or plan for any high-octane activities, you should enjoy your time in Kibuye. You may even decide to spend longer here than you planned for.

Top Tips

This is an absolutely gorgeous spot to spend a few days exploring , especially if you base yourself at or even .
Don’t expect a prolific amount of wildlife here. What you can expect is a simple location with budget to midrange accommodation and an abundance of beautiful lakeside views.
While it might be very tempting to swim in , do consider the risks of bilharzia (and how to treat the disease) before doing so.
