Experience Birding at Lake Bunyonyi – ‘the lake of little birds’

Birding at Lake Bunyonyi is a wonderful experience. Known as the Switzerland of Africa by the locals, Lake Bunyonyi – ‘the lake of little birds’- is a wonder to all nature lovers including the birding fraternity. The lake gets its name from the many little resident birds that will delight any visiting bird lover. As you explore the historic lake dotted with little Islands and enjoy the breath-taking scenery, there are over 200 bird species to look out for such as flycatchers, sunbirds, Cardinal Woodpecker and weavers. Look skyward and you may spot raptors souring high above.
