Crater lakes & tea plantations

The greater Kibale Forest region is not only famous for its chimpanzees and birds. Spectacular crater lakes - formed by volcanic activity - and fresh tea plantations set on gently sloping hills form a perfect decor for a hike or mountain bike tour. Walk through villages to the 'top of the world' viewpoint, see how tea leaves are picked, and discover the origin of the image on the 20.000 Ugandan Shilling note.
