Orchids' Safari Club - Bukavu, Lake Kivu, Democratic Republic of Congo (previously Zaire)

120 km from Bujumbura (International Airport) • 200 km from Goma • 300 km from Kigali

The lake covers a total surface area of some 2,700 km2 (1,040 sq mi) and stands at a height of 1,460 metres (4,790 ft) above sea level. The lake bed sits upon a rift valley that is slowly being pulled apart, causing volcanic activity in the area, and making it particularly deep, its maximum depth of 480 m (1,575 ft) is ranked fifteenth in the world. The lake is surrounded by majestic mountains.

At little over an hour from Bukavu, along the edge of Lake Kivu, you will arrive at Kahuzi Biega National Park in one of the last nature reserves featuring gorillas. You will be able to get within a few metres of these giants to observe them and see them interact with their environment. This is an extraordinary experience, unforgettable.
