Ssese Islands

ssese-islandsA 3.5 hours ride from Entebbe, approximately 51km across waters towards the southwest from the mainland leads you to the Ssese islands that are divided into two groups, the Koome group and Bugala group. The islands are found in kalangala district occupying the Northwest corner of the world’s 2nd largest fresh water lake, Lake Victoria. Bulaga island being the largest island in the archipelago. Other islands include Bubeke, Bufumira, Bugaba, Bukasa, Buyova, Funve and Serinya. In the koome group we have Damba, Koome and Lwaje as the main Islands there.
The islands have different activities like forest walks, bird watching, canoeing, sunset cruise, camping by the beach, kayaking, motorbike touring and a lot more. Don’t get worried about missing out on what happens at other islands around, as you can get onto one of the lake taxis available to go from one close island to another. There are also many beachfront hotels, very close to each other you just have to choose one that suits your taste. If you are having a night over, you will enjoy the sunset or sunrise cruise or even watch it from your hotel room balcony.
The atmosphere is mostly relaxed as the islands are hilly and have diverse terrains with very stunning views. Along the southern end near Mutumbula, there is a swamp that harbors hippos. The people found at the island are very friendly and welcoming. Also, you should not miss out on the stories, tales and history of the island as you visit the John Speke point. You can access the islands by use of a ferry from Entebbe or Masaka, the ferry also has a snack bar. An airstrip is also being built on the islands.
