Samuka Island day tour is a spectacular nature retreat to Samuka Island, one of the most beautiful islands situated in Lake Victoria. Samuka Island offers a unique opportunity to escape and relax in total peace and tranquility. Samuka Island is 9 km or 40 minutes by speed boat off the shores of Jinja town, Uganda.
1.5 hour’s drive from Kampala and 5 minutes from Jinja takes you to Rumours at the Source of The Nile. A boat trip to Samulika Island departs from the “Rumours on the Nile” (The only eating and drinking establishment closest to the Source of the Nile and the gateway to Samulika Island).
A gentle boat trip from Rumours at the Source of the River Nile will take you to the island which is 12 acres of unspoiled natural beauty with a bird sanctuary that offers peace, serenity, and tranquility. Samuka Island is known as the Zanzibar of Uganda.
The island offers various activities such as bird watching (over 52 bird species), swimming in the pool, and water sports such as jetskiing, tubing, kayaking, and boat rides to nearby islands. The sunrise and sunset are spectacular. One can also choose to relax as they watch the amazing views of the Lake.
Other activities include sundowner boat trips, fishing trips, and outdoor games like volleyball and football. Lunch is at the exquisitely beautiful Samuka Island Retreat where you can enjoy a variety of sumptuous African dishes.
Take a boat ride to Samuka Island in Lake Victoria from Jinja. Clad with guitars and sunglasses, we splash water and sing the whole way long. On arrival, tourists can swim, eat, drink, swing, read a book, and simply relax with soothing music.
As the sun sets, everyone heads for the famous sunset photography. Sail back to the mainland with the Ugandan tour guide.
