Location Description


The Birdnest @ Bunyonyi Resort is located in South-West Uganda. Its position at lake Bunyonyi means the borders of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda and even Tanzania are nearby.

The lake is well known for its great variety of birds of all sizes (see detailed list in birding). It is surrounded by the green hills covered with the farming terraces which define the look of the region. The hotel is positioned at the shore of the lake, offering a spectacular view of these amazing surroundings.Recently we expanded with an Overseas location for camping and nature experience.

The town closest to lake Bunyonyi is Kabale. The drive to Kabale takes two hours from Kigali and around seven hours from the capital city of Uganda, Kampala.

To reach the hotel there is a road branching from the main Kabale-Kisoro-road. Coming from Kampala this branch is found on your left side, just after leaving Kabale. Coming from Kisoro, you will find the road leading to the lake on your right side, just before entering Kabale.

This road is marked by several signposts. One of them indicates Birdnest @ Bunyonyi Resort. It leads up to a junction overlooking the lake. At this junction you continue straight ahead on the only road descending from the hill. When following this road Birdnest @ Bunyonyi Resort is the first hotel you will pass, seen on your right-hand side and easily recognizable by the big thatched roof. There is parking space for about 30 cars.
