The lake is 25 km long and 7 km wide, with 29 islands dottin the waters. With a maximum depth of 900 m, it is the second deepest lake in Africa. Weather you want a vacation full of adventurous activities, or a relaxing vacation with beautiful views, Lake Bunyonyi is the place for you. Here you can feel free to rest and take a dive in the clean water. Or you can enjoy some of the attractions.

Because of it’s great location in South West Uganda, it would be ideal to combine Lake Bunyonyi, with a gorilla trekking tour in Bwindi impenetrable forest or Mgahinga Gorilla Park.
