Edirisa's Canoe Trekking is a combination of dugout canoeing and hiking around Lake Bunyonyi and throughout southwestern Uganda, as far away from touristy areas as humanly possible. We have been organising such treks since 2005, providing travellers with a striking blend of culture and action. From 2 hours to 7 days, starting from $15pp.
