Kibuye, home of the spectacular sunset

I was only able to spend two nights in Kibuye, but on both occasions I was treated to amazing sunsets. On my first night I went over to the Centre Bethanie, a guesthouse a short walk from where I was staying, which has a fabulous lakeside setting and fragrant grounds filled with flowers.

The Centre Bethanie has a nice restaurant, with average food delivered very slowly, right on the water’s edge. It was the perfect place to watch the sun set over the water while sat outside having dinner and a cold beer. The red and orange sky was dramatically reflected in the still waters of Lake Kivu, while every now-and-then a small boat would silently move across the lake. Truly serene.

The changes in colour, which turned the sky and land purples, blues and pinks, finally ended with an intense fiery sun which seemed to set the sky and water alight. It was magnificent and it is seared into my memory of Kibuye.
