Situated in the northwest of Lake Victoria, the Ssese Islands form one of Uganda’s prime destinations for relaxation and off-the-beaten-track exploration, as well as for game fishing, in particular Nile perch.
Buggala is the largest of the Ssese islands set within the Uganda waters of Lake Victoria and the best developed for tourism. The island is linked to the mainland by a regular motor ferry and dotted with accommodation to suit most tastes and budgets.
This Island offers a treat away from the hustle and bustle of the city and is an ideal resting place after a Ugandan safari. You can choose to relax at the beaches, or take a fishing trip, and for nature and bird lovers there are lush forests where nature walks can be done. Other options include visiting the small village on the western extreme of the island.
