The lake covers an area of 2,700 km² (1,040 sq mi) and sits at an altitude of 1,460 m² (4,790 ft) above sea-level. The lake-bed is situated in a rift valley that is slowly being pulled apart, causing volcanic activity and making it especially deep. Its maximum depth of 480 m (1,575 ft) is ranked the fifteenth in the world. The lake is surrounded by majestic mountains.
An hour from Bukavu, along Lake Kivu, you can discover Kahuzi Biega National Park. This park is one of the last nature reserves to home gorillas. You can approach these giants within a few metres, an unforgettable experience!
