Lake Mutanda is a small freshwater lake in Uganda that is located in the Kisoro District in southwestern Uganda. It is approximately 20 km north of the town Kisoro and nestled in the foothills of the Virunga Mountain Range, at an altitude of 1800 metres. Three volcanoes within the range are partly located in Uganda, namely Mount Muhabura, Mount Sabinyo and Mount Gahinga and can be viewed from Lake Mutanda. The environment on the islands within the lake and the surrounding countryside includes lakeside forests and wetland habitats that provide a haven for the endangered Mountain Gorillas.
In addition to the Mountain Gorillas and Golden Monkeys in the nearby Mgahinga National Park, the lakeside environment accommodates a variety of animal and plant species, unique to this area. Bird species include kingfisher birds, kites, ibis and Uganda’s national bird, the Crested Crane.
