we as a group of 3 families visited Bugala Island (ssese island beach hotel). The location is wonderful, just 5 mins walk from the ferry site. We took the MV Earthwise from Port bell and returned after two days in MV Kalangala to Entebbe. Earhwise upperclass ticket @50000ugandan shillings was well worth the money. two complimentary drinks and a glass of wine. MV Kalangala, being a government ferry is cheaper but more crowded (ticket charges @14000 shillings per adult).
We spent one night watching the sunset and enjoying the sunset and location, On the next day we hired motorcycles and drove around the Island. A tiring but exciting ride. What was dampening was that the Palm Oil factory was not open to visitors nor photography which became a bit disappointing after a 1 hour ride across the Island. The people are warm and friendly.
we were also taken to a so called Bat Cave, which I personally do not recommend for anyone. our guide recommended that we pay some money to the 3 guys who were sitting in and around the Cave, No bats seen; only a dog and 3 drugged guys.
The fuel filling part during bike hire needs to be tied up before hand as I feel that our guide made some quick bucks in that too.
Overall. a good location for recharging yourself and getting close to Mother Nature. A wonderful place for photographers, artists and novelists who want some peace and good shots...
