Karongi offers a wide range of exciting activities. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough time to explore the area extensively. Upon arrival from Rutsiro, I had a stopover at Ndaba Rock before visiting the Museum of Environment. Then I spun my spokes along the scenic shoreline and indulged in a sightseeing tour. At the end of the adventure-filled day, I checked into Moriah Hill Resort.    

When I opened the curtains in the morning, I was awestruck by the view of the lake and its picturesque islands. From the balcony, I marveled at those magical creations and reminisced about my experiences there.

The sight of Amahoro Island rekindled memories of the barbecue I organized there during my first-ever trip to Karongi. The imposing appearance of Nyamunini Island, farther ahead, reminded me of the kayaking and hiking expeditions that highlighted my past Nyamunini getaways.

After breakfast, I was ready to hit the road. My next stop would be Nyamasheke. However, before departure, I felt the need to organize my notes and update my Flickr account. I decided to do so while soaking up the view from another hospitality establishment: Cormoran Lodge.

Karongi was the 20th stop of the 30 Districts Expedition, my grand tour of the Land of 1,000 Hills. I am currently working on a book that will highlight the unforgettable experiences across all 30 districts of Rwanda. Free copies of this book will be given to members of the Turning Pages Book Club.
