Kasenda Crater Lakes

As it leads you to various crater lakes, the Kasenda crater Lakes area is a natural paradise off the usual path. This is yet another undiscovered gem from Uganda’s popular tourist destination. The two most visited national parks in Uganda, Kibale Forest National Park and Queen Elizabeth National Park, are close to the Kasenda Crater Lakes region.

Crater lakes were created in the Ndali-Kasenda region during a previous volcanic eruption that occurred more than 10,000 years ago. They left behind calderas, which later developed into the beautiful crater lakes in the region. While some of the crater lakes are surrounded by exceptionally pure water, the majority of these lakes are characterized by a sulfuric acid odor and green toxic water.

The top of the world is the elevated Ndali-Kasenda viewpoint, which is situated between the Kibale-Kamwenge and Ndali highways. The region offers breathtaking views of the rift valley’s George and Kichwaenba escarpments. There are several crater lakes in the Kasenda region, including Lake Nkuruba, which is situated 25 kilometers south of Fort Portal. One of Kibale’s most magnificent crater lakes, this one offers breathtaking scenery and spectacular walking safaris.
