The staff and the setting are what make Samuka Island really special. Michael and his team are well-trained, wonderful hosts. Our experience was that they couldn't have done more to make us welcome and comfortable and the island has an incredible view of the surrounding lake. Food was great and drinks well-stocked. The main building and swimming pool could have been a bit cleaner but we found it to be completely fine given the circumstances of covid-19. Would recommend to anyone coming to Jinja.
This was the best place to rest and recuperate after months in lockdown. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. You truly feel at peace there. The food and accommodations were amazing! Recommending this to all of my friends. I hope that I get to go back very soon!
I visited Samuka island on the 11th of March 2020. I visited this island with my girlfriend and another couple. Am not exactly a bird lover but I love adventure and touring so this was my next destination. We set off in the morning at around 11am and boarded a boat next to Jinja sailing club.it took us about 40 minutes to get to the island.Our guide engaged us through out the entire journey telling us about the different places we saw along the way. When we got to the island, I was not disappointed at all, the island is so beautiful. The carpet grass was so soft and unique, the flowers were colorful and beautiful. The island has lots of different birds unfortunately I don't remember their names but they were many bird species. The island has a number of monitor lizards, these caught my eye. The monitor lizards had amazing features and colours. There was one with stripes of orange and black, it was beautiful. The infrastructure is unique especially the swimming pool and furniture. I loved the food. The French fries were delicious we infact ordered for more. The fish was well prepared. The toilets and bathrooms are good but need regular cleaning. I loved the entire experience and have lots of photos to remember Samuka island.…
We visited the island & we found out it a good place away from home. Hospitality from the Steve manager,Sarah receptionist, chef & pool attendant was super. Will recommend couples to spend their wkend
Samuka Island is really unique, and has a beutiful view over the Nile. But I think its quite Strange they say they take 300.000 for the speedboat to the island. The pool was also really dirty and nothing i would like to swim in. The food was good, and nothing to set on that.
