Lake Bunyoni can be found in south-western Uganda just south of Kabale. At sixteen miles long and just over three miles wide it was formed after volcanic eruptions some 8000 million years ago that blocked what is now the River Kabaga creating effectively a dam and the waters from the river then filled the valley to form the lake we see today. Lake Bunyonyi, with Bunyoni meaning "Place of many little birds", is home to twenty nine islands a few of which are inhabited and some turned over to tourism, particularly Eco Island. On these pages we share with you all about lake Bunyonyi, things to do around the lake, Lake Bunyonyi accommodation and resorts and how you can get involved in the community.
