Kiliba is a town in the Democratic Republic of Congo, located just north of the northern tip of Lake Tanganyika in the province of South Kivu. It is located about 17 km from Bujumbura, the capital of Burundi and 25 km north of Uvira. The primary spoken language is Kifuliiru, although Kiswahili (an East African trade language), and French are also spoken.

It is located at the base of the Mitumba Mountains (which lie to the west) in the Ruzizi Valley. It was once home to the sugar cane mill of Sucraf-Sucki, [1] the second largest and oldest sugar mill in the DRC. The factory was destroyed in the civil war which started in 1998 [2].
