Lake Bunyonyi Uganda

This 3-day budget-friendly Uganda holiday takes you to the beautiful tropical waters of Lake Bunyonyi – an ideal place for relaxing and chilling as well as a great place for adventure activities such as boat rides, swimming, canoe riding, bird watching, visiting Batwa pygmies, local markets, hiking and mountain biking, etc.

Many tourists and travelers who undertake a Gorilla trekking safari in Uganda or come to Uganda after their Rwanda Gorilla safari experience rest and relax at the beautiful Lake Bunyonyi.

The tour begins and ends in Kampala, Entebbe, or Kigali, the capital of Rwanda. Lake Bunyonyi (which means a “place of many little birds”) is located in South Western Uganda between Kisoro and Kabale near the Rwandan border and is positioned 450 km (7 hours) from Kampala. The lake is a 100 km (2 hours) drive from Kigali.

Lake Bunyonyi is about 25 km long, 7 km wide, and 35,000 feet deep putting it top of the list as the deepest Lake in East Africa. The lake is surrounded by steep Kigezi terraced hills, and lush green vegetation and is conveniently located in a remote area that supplements the beautiful scenery with a quiet ambiance to chill out, hide away and enjoy the spoils of the perfect South-Western climate.

There is quite a lot to do while at Lake Bunyonyi, the top on the list being relaxing and chilling the entire time you are there. The view is calming and the activities adventurous, rest assured to leave this place rested and with a different view of the world.

Activities include worshipping the scenic landscapes from a hilltop, swimming, riding a canoe or motorboat around the lake, bird watching, hiking, and taking historic Uganda cultural tours to the Batwa (pygmies) and the Abaheesi (traditional blacksmiths) communities.

One could also go fishing, mountain climbing, biking, jogging, visit the local market, ziplining, enjoy a honeymoon holiday, barbeque at your resident lodge or tour some of the 29 islands on Lake Bunyonyi.
