Ssese Islands

At the lake's northwestern corner lies the 84 islands of  Ssese archipelago, some of them have a striking beauty.

You can take boats from Kasenyi to many of the Ssese Islands, but tourist facilities are available only on Bugala, Bukasa and Banda Islands.

Its adventurous journey to Bugala the main administrative  island of Ssese through Bukakata three hours drive from the capital city Kampala. Take a ferry [with your vehicle] and drive to Kalangala where there is a variety of accommodation ranging low cost bandas to up market/mid range cottages.

You need to go to Ssese Islands to chill out, read books, relax and hang about the camps on the beach. Walks are the major activity. For birding enthusiasts the islands are home to a wide diversity of colorful bird life. Turacos and an endemic Paradise Flycatcher are common. Swimming is possible in the lake but there is bilharzia risk.

For maximum satisfaction on Ssese island, a three day [two nights] program would suffice.
