If this is your first Joomla site or your first web site, you have come to the right place. Joomla will help you get your website up and running quickly and easily.

Start off using your site by logging in using the administrator account you created when you installed Joomla!.

Explore the articles and other resources right here on your site data to learn more about how Joomla works.(When you're done reading, you can delete or archive all of this.) You will also probably want to visit the beginners' areas of the Joomla documentation and support forums.

You'll also want to sign up for the Joomla Security Mailing list and the Announcements mailing list. For inspiration visit the Joomla Site Showcase to see an amazing array of ways people use Joomla to tell their stories on the web.

The basic Joomla! installation will let you get a great site up and running, but when you are ready for more features the power of Joomla! is in the creative ways that developers have extended it to do all kinds of things. Visit the Joomla! Extensions Directory to see thousands of extensions that can do almost anything you could want on a website. Can't find what you need? You may want to find a Joomla professional on the Joomla! Resources Directory.

Want to learn more? Consider attending a Joomla! Day or other event or joining a local Joomla! Users Group. Can't find one near you? Start one yourself.

  • Roughly 4km south of town, along a lovely lakeshore road, is the Rubona Peninsula. The peninsula is Lake Kivu at its finest. Hills rise steeply from the lake foreshore and are a patchwork of garden plots and small homesteads. The shore itself is often rocky, although there are enough sandy spots and places suitable for swimming. It's a very popular weekend destination.

  • These huge caves, 2km from the town centre along the road to Gisenyi (and also accessible from the road to Kinigi) were created when different lava flows joined to create the Albertine Rift Valley. Bat roosts are a significant feature of the caves, as are huge roof collapses that create vast arrays of coloured light shafts.The 1.25 mile long cave is home to a large bat colony.

  • During the rainy season, at the height of production, the Pfunda Tea Factory processes 60 tonnes of tea from the surrounding plantations daily. Guided tours follow the tea production from arrival of the green leaf through to the withering, cutting, drying and sorting stages, before it is packaged for shipment to Mombasa (Kenya). The factory is about 5km from town and most easily reached by moto-taxi (RFr500 for locals but you'll most likely pay double that).

  • Situated on a hill 2km from town, this fascinating museum is less about ancient history and more about royal residences. The displays centre on a replica king's 'palace' . Inclusive in the ticket price is a guided tour that helps explain some of the architectural idiosyncrasies inside the royal compound, including why the royal beer brewer's hut had an entrance without a lip, and why the woman who looked after the king's milk was never able to marry.
