How do I get to Amasiko

Amasiko is located on a peninsula along a very picturesque road on the northern side of Lake Bunyonyi and is accessible from both the east (via Kabale) and the west (via Muko).
From Kabale it is about 20 km to Amasiko and there are several options for transportation:

By Car

From Kabale Town follow the Kisoro road, just after the Kobil petrol station you reach the sign post for Lake Bunyonyi. The lake is 8km away.
Take the left at the sign post; continue on this road until you see Lake Bunyonyi for the first time (4.7km). You will see the cross roads and a pile of tyres. At the tyres branch to the right.
At the coffee shop (left side) you keep to the right and start climbing up the hill.
After 4.5 km there is a sign post for Rubona Primary School, keep following the main road on the right. Shortly after is the sign post for Kagarama health centre on the left.
After 1 km you will cross a small trading centre with electricity poles and soil speed bumps on the road.
At the end of the trading centre are two sign posts, one for Kigezi Hill Prep School, and the other for St George Kibuzigye Secondary School. Keep left and you will see Lake Bunyonyi on your left, the road has Eucalyptus trees running along it.
The road slopes down to a swamp (5.8km). After this swamp take the left and climb up the hill where you will see the lake and a penisula.
About 1.3 km from the swamp you will get to a right hand corner and here branch to the left down onto a small track, you will pass the school and reach the parking which is at the end of the track.
