some of activities along lake mutanda and its islands






I have just completed my 2 nights stay at Chameleon Hill Lodge from 18th to 20th October 2014. The bedding, meals and bathroom were so amazing. I enjoyed sleeping in the comfortable well laid bed, all time warm water in the bathroom and the beautiful spectacular view of Lake Mutanda overlooking the Sabinyo,Muhavura and virunga mountains.   



we started our day with the best breakfast at the lodge and there after we went by engine boat to explore Lake Mutanda, It took us like 17 minutes to reach the 1st ‘Punishment’ island. These islands acted as the prison for the wrongdoers such as the girls who got pregnant before marriage, rapists, people who practiced incest and the old aged because they could not burry them. And these actions are estimated to have happened about 100 years ag
o among the Bafumbira tribe and these 2 caves are still regarded as the sacred islands which are not inhabited to date among the Bafumbiras and they go to these islands to ask for blessings from their ancestors.

From here we visited another island which has a total of 150 people on it and we attended a local church service which showed me the faithfulness and love these people have to God. While at the church, the priest requested if there is anything to be donated to the church, children and the elderly. So if there is anyone there of good heart and love to God, Please you can contact Chameleon Hill Load or travel explore Africa for any donation because we left them planning to build a bigger house for God. For those of you who haven’t seen people with faith to God, for me I want to tell you that I saw people with faith and you need to explore it yourself. After the church service we bought sugar canes and headed back to the lodge for lunch but on the way back we found strong waves but managed to reach our lodge safely and I thank the almighty God for saving our lives.
In the evening we were crowned with cultural performances from the local dances and their performance was superb and unforgettable
