The largest of the freshwater lakes in Rwanda, it empties into the Ruzizi River. Lake Kivu lies on the Albertine Rift making it part of the Great Rift Valley. Due to its position on the rift, it is slowly being pulled part causing volcanic activity as evidenced by the hot springs which ring the lake’s shores. This “exploding lake” is home to many species of fish including barbus, clarias, Nile tilapia, and Tanganyika sardine.
