Crater Lake Hikes

Explore three crater lakes during this enjoyable circular walk. Learn about Crater Lake formation whilst viewing birds, trees and beautiful scenery. Hikes of varying lengths among the crater lakes can be organised. Depending on your interest and fitness level, the experience can include waterfalls, crater rims, coffee terraces and even banana gin brewing in oil drums. There are also plenty to see for those fascinated by birds, butterflies, and primates.

Birding Excursions

Rweteera Safari Park boosts of over 170 birds species for Birders, bird lovers, and conservationists. The birds can be seen around the campsite, Crater Lake shores, swamps, gardens and agricultural plantations.

According to Roussouw Kibale Forest harbours the greatest variety and concentration of primates found anywhere in East Africa.? Well, thumbs up to that. Kibale is where Rweteera Safari Park is located with wild Chimpanzees, and the apparently ?elusive? Red Colobus monkey. Incredibly rich in animal life, Kibale is a place of many firsts for me and Rweteera Safari Park fulfils your dream of birding in the crater lakes.

Cultural Encounters

Traditional cultural dances Music, Dance and Drama

Local dancers demonstrate the best of their local culture through a lively hour-long performance, incorporating drama, dance, hand-made musical instruments and riddles. In the Bakiga tribes, both men and women dance by stamping the ground barefoot ? the harder you do it the better. Cracks on the floor are an indication that the party was a success!

Craft Demonstration

The group sells baskets, mats, bags and other crafts at Rweteera Safari Park. The women use local materials such as millet straw, banana fibres (these two are agricultural waste), raffia and Phoenix palm leaves, papyrus plants and natural dyes, all from plants that the women grow themselves at their homes.

Other Homestay Activities

As a homestay guest, you participate in the activities of the host family and they become your guide during your stay. They will accompany you in your explorations and treat you as if you lived in the village and were not a guest. Guests are also provided meals “local style,” meaning meals that the everyday villager eats.

A few of the activities offered to the traveler are: village walk, canoeing, listening to traditional stories from village elders, watching how food is prepared under hot stones, weaving, milking, harvesting, games with village children, forest/nature walking, hill climbing, learning local tradition and history, helping with village chores, and if you are lucky attend a local wedding ceremony!
