Other things to note

Welcome to Chahafi Lake Resort; a little spot of heaven in the Kisoro region of south west Uganda. A secluded location gives you access to a sublime escape from the hustle and bustle of surrounding towns and cities, giving you chance to relax and wind down whilst exploring the wonderful nature within the area. The resort is equipped with en-suite Safarihuts with spacious rooms and comfortable beds. There is also a bar and restaurant on site, giving you options of delicious local or international dishes, supplied by the wonderfully welcoming staff.

Where the resort ends, the lake begins, giving you access to swim, canoe or simply sunbathe next to a lake without the threats of bilharzia, crocodiles and hippos. A purpose built sun deck allows you to spend the day doing nothing and if you happen to get restless, the diving platform will pump some excitement back into you. For the more energetic visitors there's enough activities to keep you entertained for weeks. Swamp walks and tours around Chahafi lake, neighbouring Kayumbou lake and the hills separating Uganda from neighbouring Rwanda will satisfy your hiking needs, with mountain biking set to be introduced in the near future. A vast array of bird life will impress diehard birth watching fans as well as novices who have yet to explore the vast quantities of species. Rural village life surrounds the resort, giving you an insight into daily life in the 'real Africa'. Church visits, community walks and home visits are all available giving you a unique opportunity to experience the local culture. Local families are extremely friendly, waving to you in the streets and welcoming you into their homes.

The resort is also a great transit point to a number of the regions top attractions. Transport, food and guides can be set up to a number of the surrounding volcanoes in the Virunga chain, offering you an unbeatable hiking adventure. Bwindi Impenetrable National Park and Queen Elizabeth Nation Park are within a short distance, with the resort offering you a relaxing break after your days of watching gorillas, chimpanzees, lions or leopards.
