3 Picture-Perfect Lakes You Won’t Want to Miss on Your Trip to Uganda

Uganda has been attracting more and more travelers in recent years thanks to its beautiful landscapes, and the country’s lakes are some of the most stunning places you’ll find to visit on your trip. Lake Mburo National Park houses three lakes — all of which look almost as if they were painted from above and below by an artist looking up at the sky and then down at the ground — in one small space. Make sure you don’t miss out on these three picture-perfect lakes when you’re traveling in Uganda!

Lake Mburo National Park


Lake Mburo is one of the most beautiful and serene lakes in Uganda. The water is so clear that you can see the bottom, even when you’re standing in the middle of the lake. The shores are lined with lush greenery, and the nearby hills provide a stunning backdrop. If you’re looking for a place to relax and take in nature, Lake Mburo is the perfect spot.


The park is also a great place for birdwatching, as over 300 species of birds have been recorded in and around Lake Mburo. If you’re staying at a nearby lodge or in one of the villas, you might be able to spot some from your window. And if you feel like having an adventure, there are hiking trails that will take you through some dense forest so you can get even closer to nature.

Lake Mutanda


Tucked away in the southwestern corner of Uganda, Lake Mutanda is a freshwater crater lake that’s beloved by both locals and visitors for its dramatic setting and tranquil atmosphere. Surrounded by lush green hills, the lake is fed by several rivers and is home to a number of small islands. Visitors can enjoy activities like swimming, boating, and fishing, or simply relax and take in the stunning views.


The lake is situated about two hours southwest of Fort Portal, which makes it an easy day trip from there. Visitors can take public transport or hire a private driver; most accommodation options in Fort Portal will also be able to provide transportation for guests.

Lake Bunyonyi


Often called the Switzerland of Africa, Lake Bunyonyi is one of Uganda’s most picturesque lakes. It’s surrounded by 29 islands, many of which are home to small villages. Visitors can take a boat ride out to one of the islands, hike around the lake, or just relax and take in the stunning views.


Make sure you bring your camera, as there will be plenty of opportunities for breathtaking photo ops. The water has an intense blue color and it feels like you’re walking on air when you walk over its surface because it’s so clear! As soon as I reached the top of one of the hills overlooking the lake, I saw a buffalo below me munching away at some grass with his herd not too far away. I was told that there are also hippos living in this area but we didn’t see any during our visit.
