We went for a walk and a bout tour, the lake landscape is simply stunning!. There are many trails and only a handful of lodges. It is a good place to relax for a couple of days.

We were so lucky to stay in the area and the lake was so peaceful and tranquil. Especially in the morning and evening when the light was perfect and the fishermen were out on their canoes.

Very nice view from hills around, but the roads are very difficult to pass. We have'n been here for a long, but the weather was fine and we were lucky to see all the spectacular views.

Travelled the length of the lake in dug out canoes that had small seats ensuring a reasonable degree of comfort. The lake was beautiful and peaceful with frequent sightings of other boats travelling to market. Sightings of crane and otter enhanced the experience. Highly recommended.

We paddled across Lake Mutanda on our way to Bwindi. It's beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! I think I could have looked across the lake at the Virunga for days and still not been tired of the view.
