Lake Bunyonyi and Kabale Boda-Boda Day Tour from Kabale

Using Africa’s very local motorcycle taxi called Boda-Boda, you and your guide will embark in this value for money tour. You get to immerse in the local community in the city of Kabale, then enjoy the serene and breathtaking views of the famous Lake Bunyonyi, which is the highlight of the tour. This lake was created millions of years ago when lava blocked the River Kabaga creating 29 islands, some of which are inhabited. Finally, we visit the hot springs in Rubanda called Kitagata. This place is famous for its curative waters that it receives about 800 people of all ages and from all corners of the country.

  • Kabale, with its population of some 500,000, is the chief town in deep western Uganda and just 49 miles from the capital city of Kigali in neighboring Rwanda. Kabale town rarely raises interest among travellers, as it is usually just a transport hub and gateway to both Lake Bunyonyi and Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Hence, making this dusty town rather a unique and very local experience. You probably won’t be impressed but you will see the real Africa- see how this city moves, lives and breathes everyday. You will see it as it is, free from any adornments to merit the title “tourist attraction”.

    Visit the Kabale central market to buy and sample African produce. Here you will see local Ugandans getting about their daily routines. We also go to Bukora where blacksmiths/local Ugandans make hoes, panga, and knives and see how they make intricate designs. We then drive to Kabale hills and visit the famous Lake Bunyonyi, which is the highlight of the tour. This lake was created millions of years ago when lava blocked the River Kabaga creating 29 islands, some of which are settled. It is also home to the infamous Punishment Island where unmarried pregnant girls were marooned and left to die. You will have your lunch here and enjoy its serene ambiance and breathtaking views.

    After lunch, travel back to Kabale town and visit the hot springs in Rubanda called Kitagata, which is famous for its curative waters. Also called by the locals as ‘Mulago’ meaning hospital, this place receives several people on a daily basis who flock to the springs to bathe in the warm water. The water in the springs can warm up to 80 °C (176 °F). It is estimated that per week, about 800 people of all ages and from all corners of the country visit Kitagata springs.
