IT’S A TRAP:
The beauty of Lake Bunyonyi is enchanting, in the true sense of the word. The lush green islands and the tranquil water will make you forget that by virtue of it being in the valley, everything is a climb up. I think this is what everyone means when they say it’s devastatingly beautiful. Every time you get off a boat, yo u are doing some sort of climbing. So please pack a pair of sturdy shoes just next to your RnR flip flops.
LEAVE YOUR COMFORTS
When you arrive at your lodging, it is tempting to dig in, kick your feet up and slouch in a comfy chair with the view of lake. Don’t. Bunyonyi has a lot to offer. From the rich history of the Batwa people, to the interesting tales of the medicine man, to adrenaline sports. Something for the scholar and the junkie. Of course it goes without mentioning that the most breath-taking views are along unbeaten paths.
TAKE A DRIVE.
This is the stuff of romance. You and bae on the open road, wind in your hair, Shell FuelSave in your tank, driving around the winding roads of Kisoro. The Escarpment rising above you, tarmac unfolding ahead of you, its breath-taking. Intoxicating even.
DO NOT DISCONNECT
Normally, travel advisories will encourage you to disconnect when visiting nooks like Bunyonyi. Think of your social media as a valve. If you do the full Bunyonyi experience, its quite much, and sharing with your family, friends and us here at #koikoiug is a good way not to get overwhelmed. The Airtel network is crisp even on the lake, so you don’t have to wait for that spot under that specific tree to share that selfie.
