When visiting the Mountain Gorillas in Virunga NP, the Eastern Lowland Gorillas out of Bukavu in Kahuzi Biega, we propose also a visit of the island of Idjwi.
An island never touched by the brutal civil wars and mass killings. An island with a peaceful, hard working population. An island worth visiting.
Try the Kasgsi – a local banana liquor, Sambaza – small fried fishes and a fresh Pineapple at the end.
Go in the canoe with the fishermen and find out how they catch the Sambaza.
It’s a mountainous island with 36 small islands in its surrounding and beautiful views on the Lake once driving or walking around
