Lake Bunyonyi is one of the main tourist draws in the country, and as such there are many nice places to stay. BirdNest @ Bunyonyi Resort is our favourite. Birds Nest, Lake Bunyonyi, Uganda Recommended places to stay are Kalebas Campsite (budget), Bunyonyi Overland Resort (budget) and ByoonaAmagara (budget), situated at an island in the lake. Our favourite pick, however, is BirdNest @ Bunyonyi Resort (mid-range). This splendid old grandeur hotel is set in a quiet bay, 1 km before Rutindo village. The place has a long and interesting history dating back to before the Amin era. The lodge has a swimming pool.
Mihingo is a luxurious, family owned lodge in a magical setting adjacent to Lake Mburo National Park. Perched high on a rocky kopje, whose pre-Cambrian granite boulders were formed over 500 million years ago, it has spectacular views over a vast Savannah landscape. Designed to blend in with its fragile surroundings, this environmentally friendly lodge offers comfort, relaxation and the experience of being at one with nature. An infinity pool overlooks the valley below where buffalo, eland, impala, warthogs, bush buck and zebra can be seen at the waterhole. On the rocks you may have the rare chance of seeing the resident family of Klipspringers. We cannot guarantee that you will see a leopard, but on a night game drive you do have a good chance. As RungweKingdon (the son of the well-known wildlife author, Jonathan Kingdon, and one of Mihingo’s guests) once told us “I have seen more leopards in Lake Mburo National Park than any other park in East Africa”. To further enhance your experience of wild Africa, Mihingo is the only lodge in Uganda to offer daytime and overnight horse safaris into the national park.
As the highest lodge on the hill we over look the beautiful Lake Bunyonyi and all its many islands from all our cottages and main dinner area and bar. Arcadia Lake Bunyonyi has 25 cottages and each cottage over looks the islands on Lake Bunyonyi. Each cottage is self contained with a private deck for guests to enjoy the view in the comfort of their cottage.
