unquestionably the loveliest lake in Uganda, Bunyonyi (‘place of many little birds’) contains 29 islands, many of which are inhabited and terraced for agriculture.
Wake to school children paddling dug-out canoes through the morning mist as crested cranes fly overhead.
Activities around the Lake
Activities embody swimming, hiking, and birding as well as canoe and motorboat-rides. Cultural and historical tours of close villages can also be arranged.
The lake stretches out for you and is navigable by canoe skippers per canoe, shuttling back and forth between the thirty-nine islands in this lake.
Children go to school by canoe, and market products are transported in this way.
Lake Bunyonyi is the perfect place for relaxation! Only the uncounted birds provide still warm melodic sounds on this island.
