It lies along Lake Kivu on Rwanda's western border. On the other side of the lake is the DR Congo.
During the genocide, Kibuye is the province that has experienced the largest number of dead people in Rwanda. It suffered about 100 000 casualties. In the church of Kibuye 11 400 people have been killed in only 3 hours.
Since only two years, tourists are coming back to Kibuye. But still many refugees have not returned to Kibuye. They are still in the Congo and Burundi.
