I spent a wonderful 3 days at Banda Island, enjoying the quiet, the views of the lake and watching all the amazing birds (never got to see the hippos or the crocodile...guess i need to come back for that!) Andrew was an excellent host and made me feel at home. The food was quite delicious-especially the fish. The boat ride over from mainland (I recommend going with Vince) was enjoyable as well. If you are looking for rest and relaxation in a beautiful spot on Lake Victoria, with basic amenities and good price, I highly recommend Banda island.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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! ... more less
