Lake Bunyoni Budget Travel

This small lake lies in south west Uganda (close to the border of Rwanda) and Lake Bunyoi budget travel offers a conveniently placed stopover between Kibale and Kisoro – and is also the ideal stopover for visitors on gorilla trekking getaways. 

At approximately 1960m above sea level, Lake Bunyoni is surrounded by rugged mountains whose slopes are defined by cultivated terraces where local folks are happily growing their crops.

Lake Bunyoni Budget Safaris

Lake Bunyoni budget safaris are famous for the range of beautiful camping spots, which make it an ideal backpacking destination – especially for visitors who enjoy water sports and swimming.

The clear, clean water is fantastic for cooling off in the humid tropical summers and with not much more frightening than the local otters, Lake Bunyoni is also a safe swimming spot.

Highlights include water activities such as fresh water crayfishing and windsurfing, canoe trips out to one of the 29 islands within reach of the campsite and Punishment Island.
