A refreshing and relaxing Island facility on Lake Mutanda, only 15 minutes from Kisoro town, 45 minutes from Mgahinga National Park and 1.45 minutes from Rushaga Gorilla Tracking Sector of Bwindi National Park. Gahiza Island Retreat offers camping facilities and accommodation in wood cabins and Stone houses. Its a great retreat for anyone with a few hours to explore the environs of Kisoro Town. It can be accessed via Kisoro, along Bunagana road, turn off at Natete town, then to the parking at the outflow of the lake past Kaboko Church. Its arguably the best Island in Uganda, with stunning Virunga Views, prolific birdlife and amazing beauty. If you have more days in the region, this is a place for you.
