We had a short stay at Bushara Island Camp, but a great experience nonetheless! The exotic environment and the lovely and interesting people made for a relaxing and pleasent couple of days. I would recommend this to all who value an authentic Ugandan experience with good food and amazing scenery!

Stayed: April 2014, traveled with family

Living in a tree house on Bushara Island is a great experience. Located in a beautiful lake close to the borders of Rwanda and DRC provides a true sense of being far from home. The environment is very exotic with djungle like vegetation and birds starting the constant concert just before sunrise around 6.30. Waking up to this sound is amazing. No electricity nor running water just enhance the experience. Food is simple but great and served by very friendly people. All personell we met are lovely and they have great stories to tell. During the day we paddled canoes to see the surroundings.

Room Tip: Pick the tree house

We spent an amazing Easter holiday on this island. The staff put all their efforts to make us happy. We had our breakfast on the veranda of our cottage and sometimes we had our lunch on a dock that we picked. Very beautiful island with very helping and friendly staff who made everything possible for us.
The price is worth what you get and more!
Will defo go there again -in a drier season tho :-s-

I spent a long weekend (2 nights) at the Bushara Island Camp. I was a bit worried when I was told that there was no electricity or running water, but this was an amazing experience. The camp is situated in an island in Lake Bunyioni. The nature is amazing, you can't stop wondering around. We stayed in a Safari Tent (Sunbird tent) that was comfortable, and it was a fantastic feeling to have an outside shower in hot water in the beautiful sunshine. All tents are hidden in the nature and have fantastic views to the lake. We enjoyed the calm, peaceful weekend after our busy workdays. The staff was helpful, polite and very friendly. Without previous discussion, Johnson, the Deputy General Manager guided me around the island while telling me the history of the region. This was a nice memory, thank you. The food was delicious and it was even taken to our tent if we requested. We enjoyed the quiet candle light in the evenings.

We have just returned to Kisiizi from an amazing weekend at Bushara Island Camp. If you want peace & quiet in stunning surroundings then this is the place to go if you are in Uganda. This is an eco resort on an island in the middle of Lake Bunyonyi and so do not expect running water or electricity, but this is what gives the island its charm, as it takes you away from the worries & strains of everyday life. This is not to say that the facilities are basic, as we stayed in a safari tent overlooking the lake & our every need was catered for. The staff are superb, the food was superb and the environment is superb. Jonson, the Deputy General Manager has a great team working with him, who went beyond our expectations to ensure we had a memorable visit.

Room Tip: All accommodation has amazing views of the lake & surrounding country.
