It is thought to have formed about 8,000 yrs ago, as a result of a lava flow from one of the Virunga Mountains, which blocked off the Ndego River at the present –day Muko to create a natural dam.

The lake has a total surface area of 60km sq, it lies at an altitude of of 1840m, known to be the deepest lake in Uganda and also the home of “otters & crayfish”. Also in its favor is the high altitude location which ensures a moderate climate and relatively low incidence of malaria and often becoming quite chilly at night.

Bilharzia is reliably reported to be absent from the lake, as are crocodiles and hippos, which means that swimming is very safe.
