I decided to see if I could do the Congo Nile trail down Lake Kivu by motorbike. I’d met a local working at the small tourist office, who said it was possible……

Well it turned out to be another one of these ones where I ask myself:  Why do you always want to take the challenging route!  Sipping a well earned beer at the end of this tough day, reminded me why: That feeling of satisfaction that I had overcome the ordeals for the day, is very special!


I met the Rwanda hikers, otherwise I was all alone, save for the shocked villagers, always shouting “Umzungu”!

I ended up finishing the day in Kubare, staying at the unlikely named, Best Western Hotel…..
