Bushara Island Camp

Resort in Lake Bunyonyi

One of Bunyonyi's best choices, this ultrarelaxed camp offers a wonderful selection of cottages and safari tents, all widely spaced through the eucalyptus forest. The ‘tree-house’ cottage set on stilts is wonderfully rustic and features a great balcony. All have memorable outdoor showers. With top service (breakfast delivered to your door), it’s no surprise there are many return visitors.

The thatched-roof restaurant serves excellent food and has a roaring fireplace. A motorboat transfer from Rutinda is free unless you’re camping (per trip USh15,000). Other perks are free birdwatching tours and a fun rope swing into the lake. It's run by the Church of Uganda to raise funds for community development projects.
