Forest walks

Forest walks can be organised to Maramagambo forest, the word maramagambo refers to a local word to mean “end of words”. It was derived by a team of young people who went into the forest and failed to trace their way back to the village for a long time and after they finally reached the village they couldn’t speak for long because they were tired and exhausted hence the forest came to be known as Maramagambo.  The walks can take 1hour to half day and its home to primates like black and white colobus monkeys, chimpanzees, L’Hoest monkeys, red tailed monkeys and Olive baboons among the rest.

Kayaking on the lake

One of the best ways to have fun is by Kayaking on Lake Nyaminsigire, the Lake is the largest Crater Lake in Uganda and it also attracts wildlife especially during afternoon hours and various water birds to be seen as you enjoy its flora and fauna.
