  • Day 1: Entebbe – Bugala Island
Ferry landing; archive photo

We will depart from Skyway Hotel in Entebbe at 1pm, our car taking us to the ferry port about 15 minutes away. On the way there we will have a short stopover at a supermarket to stock up a little, however, the ship will also offer snacks, meals and drinks.

The ferry will leave at 2pm, taking about 3 hours to the main island of Ssese, Bugala Island. We will spend those hours discussing Ssese, Lake Victoria and Uganda on the benches of the first class compartment or enjoying the views from the dock. A good book in your bag will also make sense.

On arrival to Lutoboka Bay, our lodge’s car or motorboat will already be waiting. It will be only a short ride, as most hotel establishments are lined up on the beach next to the ferry landing. Once we occupy our rooms, we will stroll around the area to meet the dense forest, the white sand beach and numerous birds.

After breakfast, at 9am, we will embark on a walk to the island centre of Kalangala, to the fishing village of Mwena and the uniquely located campsite of Fort Jesus at the tip of a peninsula.

We will pass through settlements full of cute children, past stalls with local snacks and through plantations of palm trees.
