Kampala 1 Day Trip Ssese Island Boat Cruise offers guests time off from the hassle and bustle of Kampala city in Uganda to explore Lake Victoria Ssese Islands. Ssese Islands consist of 84 Islands in the northwestern part of Lake Victoria in Uganda. We offer boat excursions to various places on the 84-forested Ssese Islands.
They are largely uninhabited and provide a relaxing environment away from the hustle and bustle of the city – only 70 minutes by speedboat from the mainland! The 84 lush equatorial Ssese Islands form worlds of their own on Lake Victoria. Forests teeming with wildlife, delightful empty beaches, friendly islanders.
The peaceful environment provides a unique and fascinating opportunity for fishing, walking, boating, birdwatching or simply enjoying beautiful and unspoiled surroundings. Here, you’ll be able to see vervet monkeys and grey parrots by the forest waterfalls, kingfishers, herons, and fish eagles diving for their food in the lake.
The Ssese Islands are a perfect getaway for travelers wishing to visit somewhere a little more rustic and “off the beaten path” than the usual safari parks. There are many islands to choose from, but Baggala Island is the most frequented by tourists, perhaps because it is the most accessible and most developed.
However, the small Banda Island also provides a popular budget resort worth visiting. Depending on your interests, you may also choose to explore Bubeke Island, Bukasa Island, or Bufumira Island.
Main Activities in the Ssese Islands include bird watching, swimming, sport finishing, wildlife viewing, village and nature walks, playing beach games, and cycling. Agricultural tours, quad biking, cultural visit, visit the John Speke house, visit the Nanziri waterfalls, canoeing, boat cruises, and horseback riding.
The hotels and lodges within the Ssese Islands offer mostly budget to mid-range quality service. There are no 5-star luxury hotels in the Ssese islands yet. However, most visitors will be satisfied with the services on offer. Bugala Island has the largest concentration of hotels as you would expect.
All the hotels and lodges offer beautiful views and access to the lake regardless of whether they are budget or mid-range. Some of the hotels include: – Brovad sands lodge, Ssese habitat resort, Hornbill camp, Mirembe beach resort, Ssese Islands beach hotel, Banda Island, Panorama camp, Islands club, and Kingfisher camping site.
