Days Ssese Islands Tour

April 29 @ 3:35 pm

Ssese Islands tour is one of the best travel packages for local tourists in Uganda. A collection of 84 islands in Lake Victoria make up what we know as the Ssese Islands. Lake Victoria is the largest fresh-water lake in Africa. The Ssese islands are found in Kalangala District –  about 51kilometeres away from Entebbe town. The major activity on the islands is fishing but tourism is catching up real fast. The Ssese islands are one of the most popular tourist attractions while on a Uganda tour. Bugala Island is the largest and most visited. The other major islands include Bubembe Island, Nsirwe Island, Funve Island, Bugaba Island, Serinya Island, Kitobo Island, Kigungu, Ngamba and Kalangala (where the district administrative offices are located).

3 Days Ssese Islands TourThe Ssese islands are characterized by pristine/clear waters, white sandy beaches and virgin rain forest. The islands are located in quiet and sparsely populated areas which allow Ugandan’s escape (briefly) from the stressful life in the busy urban areas. Visitors to the Ssese Islands should expect to take part in several activities including canoeing, beach games, swimming, nature walks, boat cruises, quad biking and off-course visiting the local fishing communities. The romantic atmosphere around the islands make them the perfect place for holiday makers, couples, lovers and honeymooners. The islands are excellent for birdwatching and small primates viewing (Vervet and Colobus monkeys). Birders will be amazed by the unique species found in the islands. Some of the species found include the Africa grey parrot, Turacos, the African fish eagle, Jewel pygmy kingfisher, Palm nut vultures, hornbills, paradise flycatcher and barbets.

This 3 days Ssese Islands tour begins from Entebbe or Kampala and will involve a tour of the large island Bugala. While visiting Bugala island, you will be using the route through Entebbe – Nakiwogo landing site. You can however decide to use an alternative route that starts from Kampala through Masaka district. We encourage you to read our comprehensive article about the things to do in Ssese Islands. The article covers everything you need to know about the island. From the history, administrative structures to the hotels. We believe the information given is one of the most comprehensive one you will get out there.
