Kabale is a relaxed, friendly city in southern Uganda, not far from the borders with Rwanda and the DRC. Located at the hub of a thriving agricultural region, Kabale is a lively business centre, has a large student community and plenty of restaurants and bars for visitors to enjoy. It's also a great jumping off point for trips to Lake Bunyonyi and the Bwindi Forest.
Nature is the prime attraction in southern Uganda, and Kabale is a great base to see all of the region's lakes, valleys and wildlife. Highlights include Lake Bunyonyi, that is possibly Africa's deepest lake and is dotted with beautiful islands. Then there's the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, where you can see endangered mountain gorillas, baboons and chimpanzees. There are plenty of luxury lodges near the city, which also boasts a fine, mild climate due to its high altitude - a major difference to other Ugandan destinations.
