Lake Bunyonyi ( a 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 travelers to chill out on their way through Uganda, and has a selection of gorgeously remote and bucolic places to stay on distant islands. Best of all – unlike many lakes in East Africa – Bunyoni is bilharzia, crocodile and hippo free, and so its crystal-clear waters are all yours to swim in bliss.
It’s a destination bewilderingly absent on every BuzzFeed and Mashable “Places to See Before You Die” list.
Lake Bunyonyi ought to be considered one of the natural wonders of the world and, it’s joined the ranks of the most beloved travel destinations.
The most common mode of transportation on these waters is the dugout canoe, which offers a completely different perspective of the lake.
