“This is a very, very nice place to relax for a while. The island and surroundings are really beautiful. The room, or actualy a small house, is very cosy with the most beaitiful view you could wish for. The staff is doing a great job and is really helpful with whatever you need. The food and drinks are very cheap considdering you are on a island and everything has to be transported from the mainland. Although you are on an island, the internet is great and thanks to solar panel, there is always light. The shower is the best I had since I am in Uganda! I would definitly recommend this place and they do a very good job for the community of Lake Bunyonyi.”
The house is opposite to Rutinda and located just 200 meters from the lake shore. You access the house crossing the lake with a local canoe or with the community boat. The house is newly built, with solar power, local shower and pit latrine. The place is really peaceful : no roads, no noise, except the birds songs all day long, and the view on to the lake is beautiful. Boat trips, hiking, swimming, stand up paddling, bird watching, visiting local communities are the activities we can offer you. Ideal place for backpackers. As you live among the local community, you can get the opportunity to share mutual skills English or fishing ,swimming lessons story telling for the children, cooking and weaving lessons for you....... Each day you will spend at Lake bunyonyi community rest house will k to the community. (Sustainable and responsible tourism )
“Johnson is a really nice host. The place has an incredible view and a unique location. Johnson picked us up at the landing site of Rutinda because a boat is required to reach the house. The house itself is clean, the bed is very good and sheets are clean. There is a treehouse to relax in the evening and Johnson can even cook for you ! The place is very peaceful, you will be stress free after your stay. We did a nice hike and a boat trip to see the 29 islands for only a small price. We also did the peddling which was really cool, this made the stay extraordinary!!! It is even possible to do a zip-line and a height parcour.”
