The Great Rift Valley stretching through the entire East Africa has around Fort Portal character of small crater lakes covered with lush vegetation that is the home to many species of monkeys and birds. From several dozen of these lakes is the most accessible Lake Nkuruba just about 20 kilometers from this town. Unlike other sites in western Uganda, this trip is not so attractive, but anyway quite satisfactory for spending a nice afternoon.

Monkeys on the banks of the lake

After you drive through largely agricultural country, you will finally get to crater lake surrounded by forest. Right at the edge there is a nice lodge, but fortunately also those not staying here have access to the lake. The most monkeys are probably right at the beginning, where they come for fruit.

Green monkey

The biggest monkey you can see here is the Green Monkey. They are pretty tame, so you will see them from very close.

The surroundings of the lake

The whole lake is surrounded by lush vegetation, but fortunately a few trails are hacked.

Lake Nkuruba

You can imagine at the shores of the lake ​​how the whole area used to look before the natives have used it for their fields.

Millepede

On the shores of the lake is the life rich not only in monkeys, whose shrieks you hear in your ears for a very long time, but also in insects, often very big.

Flora at Lake Nkuruba

You can see here also many plant species.

Unfortunately, the entire site is quite small, so you will probably see everything within an hour.
