#UgTravelMonth Trip 2: Lake Bunyonyi, Uganda’s Swiss Alps

  • Lake Bunyonyi
  • 7th Oct - 9th Oct
  • 6:00 AM on Saturday
  • UGX 330,000


We’re very excited to host #UgTravelMonth first 3 day trip. Made possible by the fact that this year, the Independence Day (9th October) Public Holiday falls on a Monday, what better way to celebrate the heritage of our land.

Lake Bunyonyi (‘place of many little birds’) is undoubtedly the loveliest lake in Uganda. Its contorted shore encircles 29 islands, and the steep surrounding hillsides are intensively terraced. A magical place, especially with a morning mist rising off the placid waters.

Discover Bunyonyi.
