You take a boat to the market and buy everything you need to make meals at the local house. Participate in the entire process of fetching water, cooking on a charcoal stove, and observing what it takes to set a dish on the table and consume food.
Connect with locals in villages and enjoy panoramic views on top of Mounts Rubavu and Rubona of Gisenyi and Goma in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, as well as Lake Kivu. On the way back, enjoy a breathtaking view of the mountains from a cruise, as well as visits to hot springs, bird watching, and more.
Participate in activities with Kivu groups such as pottery tours to see how they blend clay for handmade products, coffee tours, and traditional dancers. Prepare to join the locals in preparing delicious local food for us before hiking to the traditional healers. On our way back to Rubavu, you have the choice of joining the fishermen; if not, a trip to the tea estate to see how tea is grown can be supplemented.
