Banda Island, the hidden gem of the Ssese Islands archipelago, is a beautiful place with the most amazing sunsets. Peace and tranquility are at the top of the list, with amazing staff and management making sure nothing detracts. For the adventurous at heart, there is water skiing, wake boarding and a small Laser yacht. We also offer fishing, boat trips, nature walks and have a beach volleyball net waiting for you. In the evening we light a bonfire on the beach so you can watch the lights of the fisherman on the lake. Above all, you can be assured that the people you meet there are friendly and like minded travelers, there to simply enjoy a piece of paradise. And .... Our food is great!

I had a very good time at Banda Island. It is calm and cozy, great staff that can help you with anything and nice food as well. The nature surrounding the island is very beautiful. I relaxed, played petanque and looked at the stars at night.

Hello! Sorry I missed this question. We do not have large crocodiles around our island. We had a resident - very small - crocodile in the bay next to ours, but it was killed by the villagers whoa ere very weary of crocs. So I can safely say that there is no danger of a crocodile attack on Banda. Greetings, Petra
