These crater-lakes were created during the volcanic upheaval of the Great Rift Valley and consist of many stunning pools dotting the landscape.

Your guide will be on hand to explain the history of the area, and give you further insights into the local traditions and village life as you enjoy exploring one of the most scenic vistas anywhere in Uganda. Estimated excursion time: 1-2 hrs.
Explore the tranquility of Bigodi Wetland Sanctuary, in Magombe Swamp, situated on the edge of Kibale National Park. Here you’ll meet a local guide who will take you on your walk around Magombe Swamp, a protected RAMSAR site. The path meanders along the edge of the swamp and along a raised boardwalk through dense clusters of papyrus, taking a couple of hours to complete. This community run project offers the chance to spot up to 138 bird species including the Great Blue Turaco, a variety of butterflies and perhaps what the swamp is best known for; its population of monkeys. As you ramble around the swamp your guide will be able to identify the local flora and fauna as well as the seven species of monkey found here including red colobus, grey-cheeked mangabey, L’Hoest, vervet, black and white colobus, blue monkeys and baboons.
