It’s a destination bewilderingly absent on every BuzzFeed and Mashable “Places to See Before You Die” list.

And that omission makes no sense at all.

Lake Bunyonyi ought to be considered one of the natural wonders of the world and,

This place deserves to be on your African travel radar because, with beauty like this, shouldn’t it be?


Believed to be the second deepest lake in Africa, Lake Bunyonyi is a body of water in southwestern Uganda near the Rwandan border, and one of the country’s top natural treasures. And, at 1,962m above sea level, the lake enjoys moderate temperatures year-round, cool in both the mornings and evenings. Most visitors make it an R&R stop after gorilla trekking in nearby Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.  Make your way there from Kibale National Park after trekking chimpanzees.



Let the tranquility of lake bunyonyi ease your soul. 


Lake Bunyonyi is framed by lush, green-terraced hills that reach a height of 2,200-2,478m, but it’s the 29 islands of various shapes and sizes scattered across the water that make it most magical, 

 It’s a sight that reinvents itself every hour or two with the ever-changing climate and direction of the sun. In the early morning, the islands weave through cotton candy-like streams of mist, and in the afternoon, they’re bathed in the warm glow of the sun. Later, they’re silhouetted against a dim sky as evening approaches. One day the islands vanished from sight completely, hidden under a blanket of clouds, but it only took an hour to see them emerge once more.


Our very experienced guides will accompany you, telling you about the different islands, hills and birds.



Batwa people have a community on one side of lake bunyonyi.

They are the oldest people of Uganda with rich cultural heritage and enthralling music and dance, the batwa came to the area after their eviction from echuya forest reserve, they are hunter gathers by tradition and depend on the forest to survive,


Bakiga people and their culture 

Bakiga are the bantu group of people that have tilted the Kigezi highlands for centuries, they are popularly known for the strength and their unmatched hard work when it comes to cultivation, the bakiga have rich traditions too which are worth exploring during your stay at antique cottages.
