Around Lake Mutanda
My friend Jess and I took a Boda Bike tour following the dirt roads around Lake Mutanda arranged by Experience Kigezi which gave us a real sense of freedom to explore the area, see stunning scenery and wildlife as well as engaging with local people where they live and work.
We were looked after so well by the team who shared their local knowledge and insights. The drivers are trained to give an easy ride, stopping regularly at spectacular viewpoints giving us time to take photos of the lake and surrounding countryside, time to ask questions to Richard and see local people working in the fields or greeting curious children by the wayside. The views of the distant mountains and the volcanic landscape are breathtakingly beautiful as is the lush agricultural field systems, eucalyptus groves and banana trees through which the bodas took us through. This is a fantastic way to experience this part of Kigezi. I would highly recommend this trip if you have not much time in Kisoro for walking distances but want to get the feel of the surrounding countryside.
This was a unique, memorable and fun adventure made possible by a very special service – many congratulations to Experience Kigezi. Cant wait to come again!
