The main lakes within, or bordered by, Rwanda are as follows:


A topographic map of Rwanda showing some of the lakes. Lake Muhazi is apparently too narrow to show up on this map.
  • Lake Muhazi, about twenty kilometres east of Kigali: a long narrow lake running roughly east-west and extending north and south into a number of tributary valleys
  • Lake Burera, a mountain lake in the north (1862 metres above sea level)
  • Lake Mugesera, about 30km south-east of Kigali, is a narrow lake consisting of five east-west bays joined at the western side

There are a number of smaller, shallow lakes in the flat, swampy region between Lake Mugasera and Lake Rweru.
