Ssese Islands Lake Victoria

This is a short 3 day Uganda beach holiday from Kampala to Ssese Islands in Lake Victoria located in the northwestern part of Uganda’s waters, perfect for anyone looking to relax and get away from it all.

Uganda’s Ssese Islands, lying close to Entebbe, offer visitors to Uganda the chance to soak up a little of the lake’s atmosphere. The emphasis on these islands is less about wildlife and more about rest, relaxation, and interacting with the local fishermen.

The Ssese Islands are an archipelago of 84 islands in the northwestern part of Lake Victoria in Uganda the second-largest freshwater lake in the world.
