Echuya Forest is located in one of the most beautiful parts of East Africa. Views from around the forest look down upon the shores of Lake Bunyoni, with gorgeous views out to the Virunga Valcanos and Bwindi N.P. The forest is 3400 hectares in size and located between 2200m and 2500m above sea level, with a cool climate and amazing moutainous scenery. Short hikes cross through moss covered forest, bamboo stands, and a rare montane swamp. For birders Echuya offers fascinating Albertine Rift Endemics including the rare Grauer’s Reed-Warbler. Echuya is also a fascinating destination for culture. A mix of Bakiga, Batwa, and Bafumbira communities surround the forest, and our local guides provide fascinating insights into their lives. So come visit today and explore an undiscovered gem in Uganda.
