Take On The Pearl, the domestic tourism campaign by Uganda Tourism Board, had a third trip that saw the winner Findlay Adams enjoy an all expense trip to Lake Bunyonyi, Kabale. She enjoyed an action packed weekend which included zip-lining, hiking, bird watching, swimming, boating, island hopping, silent disco, cultural performances and an epic Indepedence Day celebration at the Birdnest Resort featuring entertainment by Anne Kansiime, Daniel Omara, Pulse Band, Shine Omukiga, Mad Rat and Chiko.
Lake Bunyonyi (‘place of many little birds’) is one of the most scenic lakes in Uganda located in south-western Uganda between Kisoro and Kabale close to the border with Rwanda. The area is also underlined by various nature hikes, all of which offer more than just nature and pleasure. A sense of traditional culture is also felt during the community walks, since one can get stop overs at the Bakiga Cultural museum as well as the blacksmith sites. For more cultural adventures, one can also visit the village of Bufuka for Batwa and Bakiga experiences.
UTB’s CEO, Lilly Ajarova commented that the Take on the Pearl campaign aims to create awareness and educate Ugandans on the various tourism destinations around the country; with emphasis on What? When? How? Who? And Where to Travel. She concluded by encouraging all Ugandans to love and travel Uganda and enjoy the Pearl of Africa.
