Crater Lake Hikes

crater walk
Explore three crater lakes during this enjoyable circular walk. Learn about Crater Lake formation whilst viewing birds, trees and beautiful scenery. Hikes of varying lengths among the crater lakes can be organised. Depending on your interest and fitness level, the experience can include waterfalls, crater rims, coffee terraces and even banana gin brewing in oil drums. There are also plenty to see for those fascinated by birds, butterflies, and primates.

Tea estate, crater walk and cold spring visit

tea field
Enjoy circular walk around Lake Nyabikere crater, learn how tea is grown and processed at nearby tea estate and end your walk to the visit of the cold spring. Unlike the hot springs, cold spring produces cold water gestures with a variety of abundant wildlife.


Enjoy canoeing in the Crater Lake as you explore birds, trees, Kibale national park and great sunrise/sunset.


Rweteera Safari Park boosts of over 170 birds species for Birders, bird lovers, and conservationists. The birds can be seen around the campsite, Crater Lake shores, swamps, gardens and agricultural plantations.

According to Roussouw “Kibale Forest harbours the greatest variety and concentration of primates found anywhere in East Africa.” Well, thumbs up to that. Kibale is where Rweteera Safari Park is located with wild Chimpanzees, and the apparently ‘elusive’ Red Colobus monkey. Incredibly rich in animal life, Kibale is a place of many firsts for me and Rweteera Safari Park fulfils your dream of birding in the crater lakes.

Tree planting

Plant a tree in Africa---and invest in Earth's future.

To date over 200 indigenous trees have been planted. As a result Rweteera Safari Park is slowly returning to its natural state - but much more work needs to be done, and we need your help. If you'd like to ‘Plant a tree for Africa', simply ask for details at our reception.

Due to the high precipitation, complex landform and undulating valleys, as well as continual human disturbance (fire, grazing, charcoal production and cultivation) and poor land management, Rweteera Safari Park area has been subjected to severe degradation of the vegetation and soil erosion. The project contributes to climate change mitigation through planting of indigenous tree species and assisted natural regeneration activities. The purpose of the tree planting activity is to realize multiple socio-economic and environmental benefits (climate change mitigation, biodiversity conservation, local community development and soil erosion control).

Kibale National Park, located in western Uganda, is renowned for its diversity of monkeys and great apes, of which the best known is the chimpanzee. Deforestation in the past 20 years has led to habitat degradation and consequently to endangerment of biodiversity, however, tree planting activity at Rweteera Safari Park in conjuction with the local community will restore this area.

Environmental Impact

Replacing the trees by the original vegetation increases the biodiversity in the area. Restoring the trees will improve the quality of water in the surrounding areas. It will also restore the habitat of the Chimpanzee and other primates that are seen around Rweteera Safari Park.

Social Impact

The tree planting activity creates employment opportunities to local communities from planting, weeding and tending, etc. Currently almost 20 people are involved in the activity. Besides, the activity will enhance the community bond and elevate the status of women by ensuring their participation in the tree planting activities.
