Lake Bunyonyi is situated in the south-western Uganda between the districts of Kisoro and Kabale, close to the border with Rwanda. ‘Bunyonyi’ translates ‘place of many little birds’ from a local dialect. The lake is a famous tourism site as multitudes of tourists flock to it throughout the year. The splendid lake appears on a five thousand Uganda shillings note under the title ‘Lake Bunyonyi and terraces’.

The lake has over 200 bird species including; herons, egrets, monads, cuckoos, weavers, woodpeckers, among other species. Also, lake Bunyonyi has 29 islands spread across it, including the infamous Akampene (punishment island). In the early 20th century, the native Bakiga had a custom of abandoning girls who got pregnant before marriage on Akampene, as a punishment for the disgraceful act of fornication. Most of the girls would die from hunger or drowning as they tried to swim back to the mainland. Birding, boat riding, spot fishing, natures walks and community visits are some of the adventures to engage in while at Lake Bunyonyi.
