Stayed here with stunning views over the lake. Next day went gorilla trekking. Exhausting but wonderful experience , then back for sundowners at the lodge watching sunset over the lake

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.
