Mantis Kivu Queen uBuranga is a one-of-a-kind luxury expedition vessel that allows you to explore the stunning African Great Lake, Lake Kivu. This magnificent lake forms Rwanda’s western boundary and is renowned for its fishing industry, preserving the traditional methods of the Rwandan people. As you sail on either the 2 or 3-night itinerary, you’ll be immersed in the splendour of the Kivu belt, filled with lush flora, diverse fauna, and enchanting nature trails.

Prepare for an unforgettable adventure as you embark on our carefully curated excursions. Traverse the hilly, subtropical terrain hiking, revealing endless natural wonders to captivate your senses. One of the highlights of the journey is the unique opportunity to connect with nature by visiting both chimpanzees in the Nyungwe Forest National Park and majestic gorillas in the Volcanoes National Park pre or post your sailing onboard the Kivu Queen.

Explore the smaller islands dotting Lake Kivu, including Napoleon, Teddy Bear, Monkey, and Peace Islands, during a memorable guided excursion. Engage with local fishing communities and discover their traditional fishing techniques, as well as the melodious songs they sing at dusk while preparing for their evening catch.
