At 9am or 2pm we will leave depart from The Heart of Edirisa (half an hour earlier from Kabale Town or a lakeside resort of your choice) and canoe across to the Kyabahinga peninsula. There, when school is in session (weekdays morning treks only), we will be treated to a super-cute singing and dancing presentation by the pupils of Edirisa Nursery School.

At a trading centre above the school you will be invited to a cup of the local brew, obushera. It will be ... unforgettable.

As we climb the slopes of Kyabahinga (ascent of about 30 minutes), you will encounter all kinds of plants and hear about key points of the area's amazing past and present.

At the top of the hill Omugurusi Jeremiah, a traditional healer, will be waiting for us. He is a well-known herbalist who will share with you some carefully chosen secrets of tropical highland flora.

We will then pay a visit to Ianick Mugasa, a son of the soil who returned from Europe to establish the Africa Explorer Cultural Village some 2,300 metres above sea level. Over a drink, Ianick can tell us many stories about the Bakiga, their traditional beliefs, Rastafarianism and much more.

Ianick's place will have presented us some spectacular vistas - but we will look for more. Kyabahinga is uniquely located to give us an outlook over most of Lake Bunyonyi, its 29 islands and the distant Muhavura volcano. You will get to know some of the colourful tales, legends and historical facts related to these islands.

Our final stop on the ridge will be the home of Mrs Anna, a leader of a craft group. She will show us how local crafts are hand produced, and give you a chance to make some for yourselves. And, no, this is not for ladies only!

A descent down the hill and a short canoe ride will bring us back to our starting point by 2pm (7pm), or to Tom's Homestay in case you want to prolong your lake experience.

,I love the print but I was afraid of getting it dirty since I just toss my wallet in my bag and patent leather is pretty vulnerable to permanent stains. I ended up getting the leopard insolite and I love it! I'd say go for it if you love it! lv bags.
