I would go ahead to call these islands a ‘well kept secret’ but my Ugandan friends from Kabale would beg to differ. Lake Bunyonyi is in the South western part of Uganda and is one of Africa’s deepest lakes. It is closest to Kabale town, which is an hour’s drive from the Rwanda/Uganda border. It has 29 concentrated islands therefore visitors are spoilt for choice on where to go.
We happened to visit Habuharo Island and it was spectacular. Each of the cottages face the lake so you are assured of a beautiful view whichever cottage you decide to sleep in. I was sure to capture some beautiful views and sunsets on this beautiful gem. Definitely should be on your ‘Places to travel’ list.
