The atmosphere is tropical and the climate is mild, making it seem like the never ending springtime. Gisenyi rests in the nostalgia of its opulent past. Rich colonial mansions, surrounded by lush tropical gardens fringe the lake shore. With Lake Kivu as an ever present back drop and the impressive Nyiarongo Volcano (one of the most active volcanoes in the world) as a sentinel, Gisenyi offers a scenic day out. Visitors can enjoy a pleasant and relaxing day strolling down the palm-tree fringed lakeside promenade, enjoy the sunshine on the sandy beach on the lakeshore or take an energetic swim in the lakes cool waters.
