Magical Night Fishing Experience
Choose to visit fishermen on Lake Kivu and get to know about the history and culture of the community. Sit and enjoy the ride with scenic views of the surroundings and wait for the fishermen to start their journey at 5pm
Join the fishermen in their excited traditional boats with their spectacular songs; paddle with them heading to middle of the lake. This fishing activity offers “Isambaza night fishing” and guided boat trips in Lake Kivu by fishermen who sustain their lives by fishing. Isambazas are tiny fishes; caught using a widespread net and three large boats connected to each other. The use of pumping lamps to attract fishes and panoramic lights that reflect on Lake Kivu from neighboring city in Republic Democratic of Congo makes the night fishing activity an amazing experience!
We return on the shore by motorboat around 8pm and at your hotel if it is on the Lake Shore or drive back
In addition (client’s option)
You might need to be with the fishermen on the way back next day on the shore and see how they sell the caught; continue this experience in early morning around 5am and see how they lift the net from the Lake and back on the shore with fishermen and sell ISAMBAZA before going to the hotel for breakfast
