Gatatu Safaris. Authentic African Safari Experience

1 Day Lake Bunyonyi Canoe Trekking


You will be picked up from your accommodation in Kabale town or around Lake Bunyonyi. We start with a short orientation at Birdness Resort where you would also need to put on life jacket for safety precaution.

Apart from its serene beauty, Lake Bunyonyi is also known as a place for little birds. In fact “Bunyonyi” translates to “place of many little birds”. Lake Bunyonyi encircles 29 islands of various shapes and sizes including floating islands and the punishment island where young girls who would get pregnant before marriage would be dumped and left to die. Here, you will embark on a canoe trek to enjoy its serene ambiance and breathtaking views, which has made this place synonymous to paradise. Your guide will tell you about its rich history as you paddle through this lovely place.
