Overview

This is the shortened, no-hiking version of the Lake Burera Active Cruise. It spares you 1-2 hours of walking and doesnโ€™t include the northern shore. Because the starting and ending point are the same, you can come with your own vehicle.

The listed price applies when we have 5 participants or more.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • experience three Lake Burera islands
  • enjoy great views
  • taste local fishermenโ€™s snack
  • hear incredible stories of kings who walked on water and farted dramatically

NTARUKA - BIRWA I ISLAND
NTARUKA - BIRWA I ISLAND

This a morning version of the itinerary; you can also do it in the afternoon.

10am: You should be at the Ntaruka landing, just after the Ntaruka power plant โ€” there will be an engine boat awaiting you.

Safe in life jackets you will cruise to Birwa I island, a 10-minute ride. The biggest of the islands, it hosts a primary school and a village. To spare you the climb, the youthful dancers, storytellers and craftmakers will come to the lakeshore to greet you.

MUNANIRA ISLAND
MUNANIRA ISLAND

10:30am: The boat will continue towards Munanira, the island that fishermen often use as their base. They will have a fish snack ready for you. (If their current location is elsewhere, the itinerary will be adjusted accordingly.)

CYUZA ISLAND
CYUZA ISLAND

11:30am: The third island on your program will be Cyuza. Cyuzaโ€™s inhabitants have been moved to the shore by the government to ease service provision, and a private investor has turned it into a paradise for budget travellers. This is a magnificent site for volcano views, and for your bottled refreshment. (Here, a little gradual walk to the restaurant area is not required but definitely recommended.)

12:30pm: You will be back to your car at Ntaruka.

Included/Excluded

  • professional guiding
  • motorboat with life jackets
  • fishermenโ€™s snack
  • drink on Cyuza island
  • transport to/from Lake Burera - but can be arranged
