Crater Lakes

The Ndali-Kasenda Crater Field was formed some 10,000 years ago during a period of intense volcanic activity that resulted in numerous explosion craters. Over time, the craters filled with water and today, the Ndali-Kasenda Crater Field boasts one of the densest concentrations of crater lakes anywhere in the world.

Some offer great places for swimming, viewpoints and nature trails that one can hike surrounded by monkeys, tropical birds, and magnificent sights. There are many accessible hiking routes with the help of a map of the crater lakes available at the hotel.

A nice day trip, for example, could be a visit to Lake Nkuruba Campsite & Bandas. They have a short forest trail or you can take a hike from the lake to the Top of the World (a hill with 360-degree view of the Crater Lake area). Guests can choose to stay at Bwigamiro Country Home from where you can be prepared a sumptuous local lunch and dinner. If you intend to stay overnight in the area, you may make reservations at Fort Motel.
