You will have breakfast at your hotel in town or at the Lake. Then we will start our canoeing in the morning.
We will get our paddles and canoes and head to Bushara. We will have a walk through the forest at Bushara and we will learn how nature can be useful to the local community ranging from herbs to hygiene. A glass of passion juice will be served here. Remember taking passion juice means being passionate.
We will move to Bwama Island, a former lepers Island. The island is now an educational centre for primary and secondary school. After Bwama island, we will canoe to punishment island where un married pregnant girls were dumped and left to die.
After a tremendous day, we will meet the local family where we will be happily accepted to pitch our own tents. We will have our dinner with the local family and campfire- full of stories and tales about Africa.
After breakfast, we will go to Kyevu. We will be able to meet the Batwa ‘Pygmie’- the marginalized group of people in Africa. A traditional dance will be presented to you and you can join the dance.
Some metres before the Rwandan border we will find a steep slope that rises into Karembe Hill (2,478 metres). We will need approximately one hour to deal with the most challenging part. Afterwards the climb is much more gentle and enjoyable - in 30 minutes we will reach the top and have a lavish picnic there, enjoying the view of Muhavura, a volcano shared by Rwanda and Uganda.
Later we will be entertained by the Bakiga dances after slopping the hill.
The dugout canoes (canoe boys) will be waiting for us at the peninsula and later ride to the island for overnight stay. We will have a nice meal prepared by the local family and campfire accompanied with tales and stories of the island!
After breakfast we will take a walk around the Island, then get to our canoes via the Upside Down Island.
After Upside Down Island, we will head to Bufuka to visit the school and later meet the craft lady- you will learn how to make local crafts. Then have lunch with the local family. After lunch, you will help with cleaning the utensils and we windup our 3- day trek.
