Uganda visa requirements for Burkinabé citizens

Lake Katwe is situated in the west district of Kasese, north of Queen Elizabeth National Park. This section is well-known for having Uganda's most spectacular extinct volcano lakes. The section comprises up to 52 hollows, which can be explored for several days. Lake Katwe and Lake Nyamunuka are two of the popular extinct volcanoes in this area of the park. These 2 lakes are also excellent for trekking, with opportunities to see warthogs, flamingos, buffalos, hippos, and other animals.

Furthermore, Lake Katwe provides a source of earnings for locals through salt mining. whereas, other lakes serve as a variety of fishing, water supplies for animals, and water for household use, particularly outside the park. Only once you travel to Lake Katwe, will you be amazed by how much effort and risk the locals go through to ensure that salt is available to all local residents.
