Overview

Welcome to Ukerewe Island for amazing tours with a local tour guide Paschal Phares from Ukerewe Island & Lake Victoria Cultural Tourism, the cultural tourism program based on Ukerewe Island in the lake Victoria Mwanza Tanzania. I'm Paschal-the local tour guide and coordinator of the program. I founded the program but I work with other local people to offer tours, promote tourist attractions/activities, and preserve our cultural and natural resources in Ukerewe. The tours include bike tour, walking tour, sunset tour, traditional healer tour, traditional food tour, chief's palace tour, Ukerewe storyteller tour, cave & view point tour, Rubya beach forest tour, and dancing stone tour. When you book your Ukerewe trip with us you will also know about how to get to Ukerewe, the best hotel to stay in Ukerewe, what to do on Ukerewe, and what to see on Ukerewe. We will be very glad to show you around Ukerewe our home island and let you see the beautiful nature and culture of Ukerewe Island.

It is definitely not the usual tourist spot, but this is what makes in extra special. I did the bike tour with Paschal, which allowed me to take in some of the beautiful views and pass the small dotted villages along the island. Paschal speaks...More

Ukerewe is certainly an off-the-beaten path destination, so there is essentially no tourist infrastructure--other than Paschal. Having Paschal take us around by bike allowed us to experience this lovely island in a way we never would have been able to without him. The bikes worked...More
