Lake Bunyonyi, Uganda

April 19, 2013

A few million years ago Lake Bunyonyi was a volcano. Today it’s the deepest crater lake in Uganda and one of the few lakes in the country that is Bilharzia-free. It’s around 1980m above sea level, and bird lovers would love this place. Over 200 species of birds can be spotted here, thanks to the alluring surrounding forests, farms and gardens. At night, you’ll be deafened by the enthusiastic chorus of frogs, and otters that are frequently seen fishing in the lake. This is really a lovely scenic spot to just swim, canoe and relax.
