It's a major transport hub, too.

Kampala is a long, four-hundred-twenty-kilometer journey away.

Beautiful Lake Bunyonyi is the reason that foreign and domestic tourists come to Kabale. The lake is only around ten kilometres away and usually done by motorbike taxi. Again, the Kabale hostels can help you with a reliable and safe driver, or you can just walk out onto the street and hail one yourself; make sure you know the fare in advance, though or you'll pay a "tourist" price!
