I liked a lot staying here, the location on an island in the middle of the lake is great, the restaurant area surrounded by gardens and nature and fireplace that is appreciated at night. It has a bath area with a platform in the middle of the lake, hammocks and changing room which I loved to enjoy. The lake view room was very comfortable, clean and warm, the bathroom in the room with the outside shower, I loved the feeling of showering in the nature but with privacy.

The island is very peaceful, basically you have the feeling that you have a private space on the island. The food is truly amazing, take the wraps!

Lake Bunyonyi

Lake Bunyonyi (‘place of many little birds’) is undoubtedly the loveliest lake in Uganda. Its contorted shore encircles 29 islands, surrounded by steep terraced hillsides reminiscent of parts of Nepal. A magical place, especially with a morning mist rising off the placid waters, it has supplanted the Ssese Islands as the place for travellers to chill out on their way through Uganda, and has a selection of gorgeously remote and bucolic places to stay on distant islands, where you've only the birds for company. Best of all – unlike many lakes in East Africa – Bunyoni is bilharzia, croc and hippo free, and so its crystal-clear waters are all yours to swim in. Bliss.
