Exploring the Crater Lakes Region in Uganda
Kibale Crater Lakes at Rweteera Safari Park are one of Uganda’s most rewarding destinations to explore. This place is an ideal base for tourists visiting Kibale Forest National Park, Queen Elizabeth National Park, Semliki Game Reserve and Semliki National Park, and Mountain Rwenzori National park.
The camp is within walking distance to Kibale National Park, with all its wonderful African wildlife and spectacular scenery.
For some of the crater lakes, the views are actually best from the viewpoints, accessed by roads. There is also a lovely walk which you could do between Lakes Nkuruba and Nyabikere, passing Lake Nyamirima on the way which takes between two and three hours.
