Lake Bunyonyi,(Place of many little birds) lies in south western Uganda between Kisoro and Kabale close to the border with Rwanda. Commonly referred to as the Swiss Alps of Uganda, the lake is revered to the various scenic islands it fathers. The depth of the lake is rumored to vary between 44 m and 900 m, which if true would make the lake the second deepest in Africa. It is one of the few lakes in the region that is rumored to be free of bilharzia and safe for swimming. The lake appears on the 5,000 Ugandan shilling note under the title “Lake Bunyonyi and terraces”
BULAGO ISLAND HONEY MOON
Bulago Island is one of the several scenic islands on Lake Victoria, located east of Entebbe International Airport. Bulago Island has been equated to approximately 500 acres of paradise away from the hustle and bustle of city life. 6km of white sandy beaches with 10km of shoreline that is mainly made up of rocks and low cliffs engender a feeling of serenity and peace; making it a perfect vacation spot for weekend getaways or even honeymooners.
Bulago, a ‘Luganda’ word to mean neck because of their neck-like formation, is the first island in Lake Victoria to be developed exclusively for leisure use. The Island has some of the excellent beaches owned by local and expatriate residents and professionals.
Bulago Island is all about enjoyment and relaxation. The island is comprised of beautiful soft white sand and several resorts but one that stands out is the Pineapple Bay resort, the most beautiful resort on this Island. Bulago offers brilliant lake side views, sunbath, is perfect for water sports, jogging around the island, horse-riding and hiking trails and also an excellent base for bird-watching as the island is home to approximately 200 bird species. This vast range of birds is simply dazzling – even to non-twitchers. Otters play along the shores, and the nature trails provide wonderful opportunities for observing nature at her best.
Bugala is the second largest Island set within the Uganda waters of Lake Victoria and the best developed for tourism, linked to the mainland by a regular motor ferry and dotted with accommodation to suit most tastes and budgets. Kalangala, the administrative centre for the Islands, is a small town situated on a ridge at the eastern end of Bugala, while the nearby Lutoboka Bay hosts the Island’s main cluster of beach resorts. Another important landmark on Bugala is Luku, the small village on the western extreme of the Island where the motor ferry from mainland docks.
A good dirt road connects Luku to Kalangala, and several minor roads run to other villages lying further south on the Island.
Situated in the northwest of Lake Victoria, the Ssese Islands form one of Uganda’s prime destinations for casual rambling and off-the-beaten-track exploration, as well as for game fishing, in particular Nile perch. For much of the 1990s, the islands were entrenched as perhaps the most popular backpackers’ chill-out destination in Uganda. Although their attractions have not diminished in recent years, their popularity evidently has, attributable perhaps to the suspension of ferries from Port Bell as well as the burgeoning tourist development at the more accessible Lake Bunyonyi in Kigezi.
The Ssese Archipelago consists of 84 separate Islands, some large and densely inhabited, others small and deserted, but lushly forested thanks to an annual average rainfall in excess of 20,000mm. Only two islands regularly receive tourists. The more established of these is Buggala, the largest, most accessible and most developed Island, which is privately owned and the site of a popular budget resort. Other Islands that can be visited with varying degrees of ease are Bubeke, Bukasa and Bufumira.
Not least amongst Ssese Islands’ attractions are their rustic character and the sense of being well away from established tourist circuit. But as in other out-of –the-way places, it is suggested that you dress conservatively except in resort and campsite grounds, and to swim with a t-shirt on
