Lake Bunyonyi is a charming lake dotted with little islands in Western Uganda. The terraced landscape and vibrant colors make it almost cartoonish.

Lake Bunyonyi (‘place of many little birds’) is undoubtedly the loveliest lake in Uganda. Its contorted shore encircles 29 islands, surrounded by steep terraced hillsides reminiscent of parts of Nepal. A magical place, especially with a morning mist rising off the placid waters, it has supplanted the Ssese Islands as the place for travellers to chill out on their way through Uganda, and has a selection of gorgeously remote and bucolic places to stay on distant islands, where you’ve only the birds for company.

This trip is proudly enabled by Nile Special, Total Excellium and 97FM Radiocity.
