While Uganda is known for its mountain gorilla safaris, it’s also home to beautiful tropical beaches and islands which are found in Lake Victoria. Approximately 84 islands make up Sesse islands in Lake Victoria Uganda, but only 2 of those; i.e. bulago and Bugala and kalangala fishing villages are developed for tourism. Bulago and bugala offers white sand beaches, a great mix of activities such as nature walks, boat rides, amazing sunsets and a variety of accommodation facilities for families and budget travelers.
Uganda’s gateway Entebbe international airport nestled on the shores of Lake Victoria is also one of the most popular beach holiday destinations. Entebbe town being the main port of entry and exit, it’s easy to add a visit to the Sesse islands at the end or start of your Uganda safari. Entebbe town itself has everything from resort beach hotels, botanical gardens, national zoo (the Uganda wildlife education center).
