Kyahugye Island is one of the most popular islands on Lake Bunyonyi as its just a few minutes by boat from the mainland which can be arranged through resorts such as the Gorilla Backpackers and has accommodation as well as a bar and restaurant, but more importantly, a short trek around the island where you will come across zebras, impala and waterbucks amongst other wildlife. Whilst a well maintained island is has kept its original integrity with overgrown pathways etc that give a real sense of adventure when tracking down the friendly animals which you can get up close to. To access this side of the island you need to go through the Eco Resort and pay a small entrance fee but for that you are provided with a guide who will ensure you come across the animals so its a price worth paying!
The island itself is privately owned and spans around seventy-four acres in total hosting a variety of trees and other plant life. We would recommend spending an hour or so on the island, longer if eating and the boat trip there and back will set you back around £25 regardless of the number in your party so a visit to Kyahugye Island makes for a good half day experience.
