Bucuranuka ‘Upside Down’ Islands Of Bunyonyi Island

Bucuranuka Island is believed to have buried a group of male revelers who refused to share their abundant stock of beer with an old lady who had embarked on a canoe to join them.

Unfortunately for the drinking party, the woman was a sorceress.

She returned to her canoe, paddled a safe distance away, and then used her magical powers to overturn the island-drowning everybody in the party and then flipping it back the right way up as if nothing had happened.

This is why the Island is called Bucuranuka (meaning Upside down in Rukiga local Language).
