There are many things to see and do at Lake Bunyonyi from walking, bird watching to safe swimming and boat trips some of which land on the islands. Most boat trips come in at around £25 however they will carry as many passengers as are in your party and can be arranged with bespoke tours from the reception at Gorilla Packers in the centre of the main village that nestles next to the lake. When booking your boat trip ensure you explain exactly what you want, ie to go to Punishment Island or land on Kyahugye Island where you can go trekking in search of wildlife such as impala or zebras. If you don't specify you'll just get a generic tour around the lake.
Walk up the hill to Arcadia Lodges for refreshments and the most spectacular views of the lake.
Step back in time to see how the Batwa lived in the Bwindi, one of the planet's most beautiful jungles.
Despite its beauty, the area is also home to some very poor children and volunteer opportunities are abundant.
