Set in 14 acres of manicured gardens, Arcadia Lodge Lake Bunyonyi offers spectacular views over one of Africa's most idyllic locations.
High up on a ridge overlooking Lake Bunyonyi, our eleven self-contained cottages are arranged around a central lodge building, where guests can enjoy the tasty dishes in our restaurant or relax and take in the truly breathtaking view. We have a 25-seater motor launch, ideal for taking in the lake and its islands on one of our daytime tours or watching the stars on our nightime Stargazing tour.
For the more adventurous, Arcadia Lodge Lake Bunyonyi has two high-end Bombardier JetSkis available for hire, as well as four Honda quadbikes that guests can hire to explore the muddy tracks along the lakeshore or the the ridges overlooking the lake.
Nestled in the extreme south western corner of Uganda, dotted with 29
islands and overlooked by rolling hills where local farmers grow their crops
on steep terraces, Lake Bunyoni is one of Uganda's most picturesque
locations. Lake Bunyonyi also offers an excellent option for a little R & R after gorilla trekking in the nearby Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.
The name of the lake translates as the 'place of little birds' and it is indeed blessed with some 200 bird species including several varieties of weavers that nest by the lakeshore and on the many islands. It is also probably the best place in Uganda to spot otters.
The lake is rumoured to be up to 900m deep in parts, though this has never been properly confirmed. If true, it would make Lake Bunyonyi the second deepest lake on the continent, with only Lake Tanganyika exceeding it.
