    this is one of the best hotels around the area, it's lovely, the scenery is amazing. its a really warm and friendly welcoming place too. the lake is lovely and great to have a little swim in or take/hire a wooden canoe! I loved my time as a missionary in Uganda, and this was a great place to take a break and some time out! also a little bit of a home comfort if you don't like local food.

    Ugandan Countryside

    On the way to Lake Bunyoni


    I really never expected to see this type of scenery in Africa. But we did, here we were in Uganda traversing high mountains on dirt roads looking out at some spectacular scenery.

    Driving towards Lake Bunyoni from either direction you are sure to encounter this type of scenery.

    The Beautiful Locals

    Locals on the road near Lake Bunyoni


    The Ugandans on a whole are such beautiful people. But a memory which sticks in my mind is when we were on the way to the Lake and almost there, we stopped on the side of the road to take some piccies of the spectacular scenery and out of nowhere these kids in my piccie arrived - so friendly, so happy - always smiling.

    The Lake

    Lake Bunyoni - Uganda


    The lake is safe enough for swimming - its actually really refreshing too!
    You can hire boats here and take a boat out onto the lake for an hour or two as well - People I know hired these from the campsites.

    Otherwise its just nice to sit along the lakes edge and enjoy a book and a cold beer!

    Lake Bunyonyi

    Lake Bunyonyi is the second deepest crater lake in Africa, at 900 metres deep there are 29 islands and the name also means 'the place of little birds'. There are more than 200 species of birdlife in the area. It is a great spot to camp, very relaxing, and on the lake you can take a canoe, or go for a swim. Nearby there are markets, and all around the lake the sing song of the district school children.

    Boat trip on the lake

    Boat trip on the lake

    Just before lunch the heavens open and we get soaked going up to the restaurant, but we soon dry out in the warm Ugandan afternoon. By the time we have finished our pasta, it has stopped raining and we spend the afternoon bird watching on the terrace in beautiful sunshine. Later in the afternoon a boat trip has been arranged for us, around the island and others on the lake. Robert comes long to help identify the birds we see along the shores, including lots of pink-backed pelicans high up in a tree. I have never seen pelicans in a tree before, it looks somewhat odd, I am used to seeing them on the ground!
