Amabeera ga Nyina Mwiru-Breasts of Nyinamwiru

The cave Amabera ga Nyinamwiru (Breasts of Nyinamwiru) is named after Nyinamwiru or Nyina MwiruChwezi Kingdom (Bachwezi). She was the daughter of Bukuku, a very rich man and King of the Batembuzi dynasty, the predecsessor of the current Babito Kings of Tooro and Bunyoro Kingdoms. She was a girl of famed beauty, and as always in these stories she was not willing to marry the man her father chose for her. As a result she was punished by cutting off her breasts which then grew into rock dripping with milk. Other versions of the legend tell, she cut off her breast herself.

One chamber of the the cave contains stalactites which resemble in form female breast. The dripping water from the stalactites deposited white calcite, so the water looks whitish. This is why the locals call it breast milk. However, the guides are well educated and tell the scientific background as well as the legend.

The cave is visited with a local guide, who is included in the entrance fee. This is rather important, not because the cave is closed, but because its entrance is closed, but because it is covered by undergrowth and hard to find. The entrance is also low and narrow and requires some stooping. The cave is mostly big enough to walk upright, but there are some low and narrow spots. Actually visitors will get dirty and it is recommended to wear suitable clothes and bring clothes to change afterwards.

Several legends are told about the cave. one chamber is said to have been the resting place of the Bachwezi dogs, and the ceiling shows pits resembling dog paws. A waterfall called Natural Shower is said to have been used by the Bachwezi to take showers. The visitors are also allowed to do so if they wish.
