It stretches from Gisenyi in northern Rwanda to Rusizi in southern Rwanda, covering an area of 2,700 square kilometers. Today, Gisenyi is known as Rubavu, but this is Rwanda’s post-independence name, and the surrounding community refers to it as Gisenyi.

Gisenyi/Rubavu is a big town with a significant population, located near the northern end of Lake Kivu. It is an excellent place to live. After a day of trekking in the national parks, such as chimp trekking in Nyungwe National Park or gorilla and golden monkey trekking in Volcanoes National Park, it is an excellent place to explore.

Nyungwe Forest is roughly a five-hour journey from Gisenyi. Lake Kivu was previously a colonial beach, and many of the residents were colonists, as demonstrated by the contemporary structures in the region.
