Bukavu is in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It is a city about the size of New Orleans, situated on the border with Rwanda. This locale has left it hard hit by some of the recent political unrest.
You can Rich Bukavu From Rwanda via the borders of cangungu, From Burundi Via the Border of Uvira, and from Goma Via the Lake kivu or by Road.
Bukavu is mainly a dollar economy, so plan to use Congolese francs only for small purchases.
Hotel La Roche has great views of the lake, decent pizza, and a nice buffet breakfast. Hotel Horizon (near Alfajiri Secondary School) is a good option for dinner, though the views are less exciting.
