Lake Bunyonyi is a body of water seven kilometres west from Kabale Town, southwestern Uganda. It is 25 km long and 7 km wide, covering an area of 61 square kilometres. The lake’s altitude is 1,950 m, and it is surrounded by hills that are 2,200 to 2,478 m high and intensely cultivated. Its 29 islands are concentrated in the central part. These islands have few settlements; they are mostly used for tourist facilities and a secondary and a primary school. The data on the lake’s maximum depth varies, from 44 m to 900 m in parts.

   

The temperature on the surface rises to 25 degrees Celsius. Over 200 bird species have been recorded here. “Bunyonyi” actually means “the place of many little birds”. Lake Bunyonyi is one of the few African lakes completely safe for swimming – there is no Bilharzia.
