Glistening Waters of Lake Mutanda in Uganda

Glistening Waters of Lake Mutanda in Uganda: Kisoro village is home to some of the most beautiful ecosystems on earth, including rolling hills, freshwater bodies, golden monkeys, mountain gorillas, and volcano peaks that pierce the hazy sky. There is a little lake named Mutanda inside this range of natural beauty. Situated at the foot of the three volcano peaks, Muhabura, Gahinga, and Sabinyo, which collectively form the Mgahinga Gorilla National Park, it is 14 km from Kisoro town.

When you get to Lake Mutanda, you will undoubtedly be treated to a panoramic view of the Alpine regions. When planning a gorilla safari, birding safari, or wildlife safari in Uganda, there’s no reason to overlook Lake Mutanda, despite the fact that many travellers heading to Kisoro end up at Lake Bunyonyi, which is a less visited gem.

When visiting Lake Mutanda, there are a plethora of activities available in the breadth of its pristine waters. Since the freshwater is devoid of bilharzia, diving in for a swim is a fantastic place to start. You could catch a glimpse of other travellers having a traditional canoe adventure with the local fishermen as you rise above the waters to catch your breath. The hand-paddled canoe will provide you with the excitement of the adventure and the time you need to birdwatch, even though other people prefer the convenience of a motor boat to navigate the waters at record speed.

When you visit Lake Mutanda, you can cross off Ibis, Kingfishers, Great Cormorants, Grey-crowned Cranes, Weavers, and Sunbirds off your list of bird species to see. To ensure that you save your catch for a bonfire barbecue, some local fishermen will walk you through the traditional fishing method in Uganda.

Exploring caves on the islands, far from the water, piques the interest of those who want to understand how humans lived long ago. Often, your farewell experience at the location or later in the evening following your day of exploration includes a cultural presentation of the traditional dances.  It is also important to note that Lake Mutanda’s proximity to the Mgahinga Gorilla National Park makes an entrance to the park simple. The park provides an unparalleled view of the surrounding landscape for your viewing pleasure.

Hiking volcanoes, mountain biking, and nature hikes can only add to the memorable experience of your journey to Lake Mutanda. Nature is beautiful, but Lake Mutanda is the purest source of beauty in the natural world.
