Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Bunyonyi Safaris Resort (BSR) is a countryside hotel located on the shores of Lake Bunyonyi in South Western Uganda.. Accommodation is in form of 6 cottages and 40 hotel rooms. All rooms are fully furnished and self contained. The hotel gives you an opportunity to hike the hills, enjoy the scenery of the lake, hills, volcanoes and the beautiful sunset. The hotel supports some vulnerable families through a non profit foundation known as BSR Foundation. The aim is to sustainably alleviate poverty and protect the environment without creating dependency. As such, we train and employ local youth and they actually manage and run the hotel with limited supervision. The hotel is ideal for groups, families, honey moon and corporate retreats. if you need a quite, secluded and natural environment, this is it. We have mountain bikes, canoes, boats, fishing rod, pool table, gym. table tennis, pool table, volley ball and football pitch for your entertainment. A steam bath and sauna are underway. Gorilla tracking in any of the nearby parks can be arranged. Our nearest airport is Kigali, less than 100km away in the neighboring country of Rwanda.Food is mostly fresh vegetables and fruits grown locally. We also have speciality cray fish from the lake. For groups interested in self catering, there's a kitchen just for that. A campfire dinner by the lakeside and a breakfast on the roof terrace are experiences you will appreciate if the weather allows. So what are you waiting for? Be our guest! ... more   less
