Lake Kivu Serena Hotel
Lake Kivu Serena Hotel is set on the sandy banks of Lake Kivu just outside of Gisenyi. With the Virunga Volcanoes providing a charming backdrop, the hotel boasts a private beach, excellent facilities and is surrounded by lush tropical gardens. The property is around a 20 minute flight from Kigali International Airport followed by a short car journey and is also close enough to the Volcanoes National Park to act as a comfortable rest stop after gorilla trekking.
