Budget Accommodation on Lake Bunyonyi
 


Edirisa means a window in Rukiga, the main language of southwestern Uganda. We strive to give our guests an authentic local perspective on the shores of Lake Bunyonyi and beyond.

We are set up as a social enterprise (non-profit company) because we believe that business-oriented activities are the best approach for long-term social and economic development. We make a weekly podcast about responsible tourism SEE AFRICA BREATHE AFRICA straight from a grass-thatched cottage.

In 2022 Edirisa on Lake Bunyonyi is celebrating 20 years of its existence, and we have prepared a series of fun articles taking you through its rich history.

ACCOMMODATION DETAILS

Edirisa on Lake Bunyonyi includes a colourful family house, two cosy grass-thatched huts and a lovely campsite hide in a forest close to Bufuka Primary School, on a peninsula that combines accessibility with the special feeling of being surrounded by a lake.

Prices listed below are for bed only; add USh 10,000 per person for a tasty set breakfast or order from our menu.



Our Family House has three spaces: a living room, a Twin Room that can be converted into a triple (bunk bed addition) and a Double Room. There is an ecosan toilet nearby.



The price is USh 60,000 for the twin (40,000 single occupancy) or USh 80,000 for the double room (60,000 single occupancy). You get the cute little living room as part of the package too. If you book both the Twin Room and the Double Room, the price for the entire Family House will be USh 120,000.



The Double Cottage has a double bed, a writing table with drawers, a big drum that serves as a coffee table and two foldable chairs for your extra comfort. It is priced at USh 70,000 (50,000 single occupancy).



The small Dorm contains two sets of bunk beds equipped with bedding and mosquito nets; a dorm bed costs USh 25,000 per person.



No building is self-contained; all rooms share a range of sitting and squatting (ecosan) toilets. The showers are open-air and hot water is fire-heated.



Pitching your own tent costs USh 15,000 per person.

Guests have free access to our canoe.



Finally, the most unusual feature of Edirisa is the swimming platform - basically a submerged swimming pool that allows local children safe learning ...



... and our visitors great sunbathing!

GETTING ACTIVE

Our international team also prepares trips around Lake Bunyonyi, SW Uganda and beyond: Hiking and canoeing trips taking from 2 hours to 2 weeks, motorboat tours, respectful visits to Batwa ‘Pygmies’ and much more - all over the Gorilla Highlands region of Uganda and Rwanda.

HOW TO BOOK

Please WhatsApp or call +256 776 558 123 or email us on info@edirisa.org.

HOW TO GET TO US

The easiest way to reach Edirisa is by special hire taxi (USh 30,000) or a boda-boda motorcycle (USh 7,000) from Kabale Town. There is cheap public transport available on market days (Monday and Friday). Alternatively you can walk to Lake Bunyonyi - it will take you about two and a half hours and provide some fantastic views.

We are in Bufuka village on the eastern shore of Bunyonyi. When coming from Kampala by car, you turn left just after Kabale Town - there will be numerous Bunyonyi signposts. Once you reach the lake you can follow our white signposts. Edirisa comes after Bunyonyi Safaris Resort, the most hotel-like building on the lakeshore. It’s about 30 minutes from Kabale to us; the last 5 minutes the road is rough.

,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.
